This is a VERY hard and long-keeping bread perfect as an side to hearty soups, chowders, and stews. Historically, it was part of soldiers' rations. Currently, it is an ideal way to include carbohydrates on hikes or camping.

This is SO good! I used to make this when I was camping with the scouts when my Mom was the Akela. I loved it then and I love it now! Perfect texture! It is like dense, chewy bread squished inside two crackers. :) I love how easy it is to prepare too. I just dug in with my hands and went for it! This is going to be made again and again in my house! In fact, I have plans to make another batch tonight! Thank you SO much for sharing!
