Today is Anzac day in Australia. A time to reflect on the horror of war...
A time to spend learning lessons from the past.
I made Anzac biscuits this morning a lovely treat for us.
However they had a more serious purpose during the war.
Apparently these type of biscuits were made by Australian women for the soldiers serving
their country overseas. A highly nutritious biscuit that kept well.
They were based on a Scottish recipe using rolled oats which were used mainly for a heavy
porridge to help during the very cold winters.
There are many versions of the recipe, easily found, simple to make and delicious to eat.
