Foodie (Talk Like A Pirate) Friday
Things you may need to cook like a pirate:
From “A Taste for War” (a Civil War recipe, but i am inclined to think the recipe for hardtack hadn’t progressed much…though they say the name is also a Civil War invention)
“Mix 5 cups of flour to 1 cup of water containing a 1/2-tablespoon of salt. Knead into a dough and roll out to 3/8-inch thickness. Cut into approximately 3-inch squares and pierce each with a fork or ice pick several times. Bake in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes or until slightly brown.”
spoonful of sugar
clove or two
lemon juice (to prevent scurvy)
Mix. Drink. Out of awesome wooden mug if possible (though not if it’s too hot, as that is bad for the wood). Also, if you use whiskey or bourbon rather than rum, you have one of my favorite winter drinks. But that wouldn’t be very piratey, would it?
