The Housebugs have successfully (it will do!) completed their second pirate task and received the second part of the map.

Task 3: Housebugs must produce a recipe for ships bug-biscuits!



  • Ooh goody

    Can we do Garibaldi biscuits because they look like squashed fl. . .

    perhaps not

  • Recipe for Hard Tack

    2 cups of flour
    1/2 to 3/4 cup water
    1 tablespoon of vegetable fat
    6 pinches of salt

    Mix the ingredients together into a stiff batter, knead several times, and spread the dough out flat to a thickness of 1/2 inch on a non-greased cookie sheet. Bake for one-half an hour at 400 degrees. Remove from oven, cut dough into 3-inch squares, and punch four rows of holes, four holes per row into the dough. Turn dough over, return to the oven and bake another one-half hour.

    Has anyone seen the bits of treasure map yet? Or do we get them all at once when we solve everything?

  • Cookies

    3 egg whites
    1 teaspoon cider vinegar
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 cup (~= 14 tablespoons) sugar
    1 cup chocolate chips

    1. Preheat oven to 300ºF (~=150ºC).
    2. In a large mixing bowl, whip egg whites, cider vinegar & salt until foamy.
    3. Add sugar, tablespoon at a time, until stiff peaks form.
    4. With spoon, fold in chocolate chips.
    5. Using a teaspoon, drop cookies onto an baking tray (here you can cut them into all sorts of shapes - ships, patches, skulls - all up to how artistic you want to be!).
    6. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown & firm to touch.

    When cool, cookies can be frosted with melted chocolate & pistachio nuts, or whatever topping pleases you.

  • BTW - sorry I was in a far from great mood yesterday - I was going mental about getting it all right - yeah suppose getting out of the wrong side of the cucoon is one way to say it.

  • 2 cups flour
    4 teaspoons baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 tablespoons shortening
    ¾ cup liquid (all milk or half milk and half water)
    Aphids (to taste)

    To prepare this Basic Biscuits Recipe, first mix dry ingredients and sift twice. Work in fat with tips of the fingers, or cut in with two knives. Add the liquid gradually, mixing with a knife in a soft dough. Owing to differences in flours, it is impossible to determine the exact amount of liquid. Toss on a floured board, pat and roll lightly to one-half inch in thickness. Shape with a biscuit cutter. Bake in hot oven (450-460 degrees F.) twelve to fifteen minutes.

    Leave to cool and then add a sprinkling of aphids to taste!
