In the other thread about flour and it going bad got me thinking about... HARDTACK! Anyone ever make it or eat it? I imagine the old civil war stories about how nasty they got but if we make it ourselves and store it properly it should be good right?

Going to make a batch this weekend and take pictures. The question is... how can I improve upon the old formula to add protein to it, or fiber.

What is the best way to store it you think? I am worried about mold in particular. Think maybe putting it in a metal container and heating it up in the oven would kill any mold for long term storage or would the moisture inside condense? Any ideas? I am new and pulling this out of my ###. Was thinking canning with hard tack as well?

sailors called them sea biscuits , seems like plenty of moisture on those old ships , man ,i bet those had mold.........but they were probably worried more about scurvy in those days . jeepgirl used some vacum storage bags , maybe that would work
