Here's an old time recipe:
HARD TACK BREAD
This bread's been known for centuries as being a staple with a long shelf life -- if kept dry, it can store for more than a year. Sailors used this for survival while at sea.
5 cups flour
1 cup water
1 tbs salt
Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Knead dough and roll out till it is 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough into 3x3 squares, and poke a series of holes in the center, evenly spaced. Bake in preheated oven, 425 degrees until dry and lightly golden brown. Store in a dry place.

Another lazy day on the farm in sizzlin heat. We're fast approaching 50+ days of triple digit temps. What more can a person do other than sit on the porch, catch a breeze, and dream of something ICE COLD?
