  • Viking Bread( AKA Hard-Tac, Cram & Survival Flatbread).

    Also known as " Bread Flour " , as seen in the picture.

    AGREE.... I think it would make a great ' Trencher ".....

    ALL wheat flour contains gluten. most grains do. do some research on celiac disease and you will see that it can kill.like I said, not all grains contain it , so do the search as I am sure that almost any grain flour will work for this application.Above all this , a great in`stble...thanks for posting it !

    Also , if you cut them into rounds ( think biscuits) , and "re-work" the scraps no more than once, the `Tacks will last longer and not be as difficult to nibble on at the corners.just a note : ( from Wiki, I LOVE them !!! ).... as a Chef I know this, but wanted to give you the specifics.....this is why honey is, or can be, added to items to increase the "moist" shelf-life of items. Also, since yeast cells die off @ 138 Far., I think Honey can be used for this recipe to great advantage. Am going to do this In`stble asap and let you guys know.Everyone, please remember this tip for all your future baking s !!!!

"Honey has the ability to absorb moisture directly from the air, a phenomenon called hygroscopy. The amount of water the honey will absorb is dependent on the relative humidity of the air. Because honey contains yeast, this hygroscopic nature requires that honey be stored in sealed containers to prevent fermentation, which usually begins if the honey's water content rises much above 25%. Honey will tend to absorb more water in this manner than the individual sugars would allow on their own, which may be due to other ingredients it contains"

    Off-Grid Tealight Slow Cooker

    Thank you for posting this, unless you are in the health care industry or a trained professional Chef you would not be aware of this.

    Great build, will keep it in mind for the future.May design it with a slide-out drawer of some type to allow replacing the candles, or to add more for a brief period to allow for higher temps.Please be sure to read the post by mary.b. , is very important.

    Thank you for posting this.Unless you are trained in the medical field, or a professionally trained Chef, you would not know this.You also need to discard the soaking water, and not cook the beans in it; also change the cooking water at least once.Also, adding salt will keep the beans skins tough, if you want to keep the texture similar to "raw" beans for a salad, or just like that texture.I prefer this texture in almost all my dishes.[delete]

Dinner can be a snack as well., something to tell your body it has some fuel for the next day.Beware that if you eat way too late, your body will keep your mind awake till it gets done doing its thing.( or make you re-call that movie you had issues with )2 Hrs before you want to crash is a decent guideline for a meal light in fats.DO NOT CONSUME EXCESS ALCOHOL LATE .If you do, keep a LARGE CONTAINER OF WATER next...see more »Diabetes is in my family.
