|This hardtack actually tastes good!|
I started out making a batch of hardtack to take along, and had to substitute a bunch of ingredients. (Plus, I like to experiment and use up items that have been sitting on the shelf for awhile!)
So, I used peanuts and almonds for the nuts, one percent milk instead of buttermilk, and the only dried fruit I had was mango!
So, this recipe probably doesn't resemble anything a Civil War soldier would recognize, but on the other hand, this hardtack tastes great!
