Recipe for Hard Tack

Mix one teaspoon of salt with one pound of flour.

Add enough water to make a very stiff dough.

Flatten the dough to about 1/2 inch and cut it into about 4 inch circles. Punch holes in each circle with a fork.

Bake in a flat pan at 250 degrees for two or three hours.
If the hard tack should happen to go bad, just remember to choose the lesser of two weevils.
