Hardtack - Sea Biscuit
...Going back several hundred years, hardtacks were commonly used for long sea voyages and military campaigns. It wasn't perishable like most foods and it was basically a super-hard cracker. Some of the alternative names for the hardtack: sea biscuit, pilot bread, ship's biscuit, cabin bread, molar breakers, and tooth dullers. LOL!
At any rate, I decided to warm up some hot wings to go with the leftovers last night, but obviously things could have been much worse if all we had were hardtacks to chomp on. If you'd rather read about the history and the modern use of the hardtack, go here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardtack
