Hello Operators Narrow-mindedness runs rampant in the ranks of the amateur radio community. Being honest, this annoys me to no end. So what’s the cure? There’s always a debate going on about the best antenna, the best radio, the best this, the best that, or even the best way to do something. For the most […]
I was able to edit the user submit form to allow up to a 5000px X 5000px image width and height max. The submitted image will still show as a thumbnail. clicking on it will open it full screen. Much better since my default Iphone-7 square image is 3024 x 3024. Test and report…
Hard Tack Survival Food or Jaw Breaker, you decide
It has many names, I feel sorry for our sailors and soldiers who lived off these…
I had tried to make this a few times in my life
I never got it perfect, nor tasty
so yesterday I decided to research it further and give it another try
most articles and videos suggested 1/2″ to 3/4″ thick pieces instead of the 1/4″ I had been trying
most articles seemed to suggest a 4:1 ratio of flour to water
salt will help to bring our some flavor
so that is where I began
in my stand mixer I added 4 cups of white flour and a cup of water
added in a couple pinches salt for good measure, it other batches I added honey and cinnamon
make sure to never grease the sheet pan or add anything to the mixture that can go rancid
air on the side of a dry dough, one that does not stick to your fingers
roll it out about 1/2″ thick
out of this, I cut it into 3″ squares with my knife, I then added holes with an end of a pen, chopsticks would work too
I then added 6 squares to an un-greased 1/4 sheet pan
bake for 1/2 hour on each side @375* (degrees), pieces should be totally hard
if they are soft please continue cooking
after cooking is done, let these cool off
seal in either ziploc bags or food sealer bags as needed
I tried a piece of one last night with hot coffee
it took maybe 10 minutes of soaking before I was able to consume it
it wasn’t bad, but I would hate to survive off these
make some up and decide for yourself, just don’t break a jaw
This summer I got out a few times camping with the family
but sadly it was no where as many times as when my kids were all at home
I am thankful we have so many primitive sites in either state or federal forest lands here
I always sleep in one of my hammocks, the kids vary from hammocks to tents
here are only a few photos from our grand times out, family is life’s real treasure
& of course where ever we go my sons dog (instagram) @adventures_of_brutus goes too
Anyone have any simple Dutch oven recipes? I’ll get it started with a desert my family likes that is super simple.
2-cans peach halves (in syrup)
1-box yellow cake mix
1-stick of butter
Oil or grease your Dutch oven.
Pour the contents of two cans of peaches into the pot syrup and all.
Sprinkle the cake mix as even as possible over the top. Do not mix.
Slice the butter into 1/4 to 1/2” pads and place evenly over the cake mix
Sprinkle with cinnamon powder
Put lid on oven and place 20 coals on top and 10 coals on the bottom.
Should take about 45 minutes.
