Sledging biscuits (adult)

„Sledging biscuits in Antarctica are one of the two foods that Antarctic exploration was built on, (the other is pemmican) they are still in use today, eaten by people who are working away from bases in Antarctica as a dietary staple.

They are derived from hardtack or ships biscuits. A simple, physically resilient, nutritious, long lasting, compact food stuff that is easy to make. It takes the place of bread as the standard carbohydrate source when away from base.

There are a surprising number or ways you can vary the recipe for this simple food, the recipe I used would be similar to that used by Captain Scott on his journey to the South Pole. I can’t say it’s exactly the same as I can’t find a recipe for what he used, in fact recipes for basics such as sledging biscuits and pemmican were sometimes regarded as secrets known to the expedition physician and suppliers of the food only. It wasn’t really so important exactly what the recipe was, more so that it was a secret which added to the aura of the expedition. Sledging biscuits were used along with pemmican and snow to make a filling and warming stew known as hoosh.”
