I’ve always called it hardtack, but really it’s called crispbread.

This weekend we were at a get-together in Sundsvall to make some holiday treats. Besides candles, cookies and bread we made some hardtack (or crispbread or soft thinbread or whatever).

It was at an large old house with a big brick oven fired up for baking.

We made 1 batch of wheat flour soft thinbread.

And a batch of rye crispbread (knäkebröd)

The hardtack was delicious, and it was great fun baking.
