“I was looking for a recipe for Saloon Pilot Crackers, originally made by Hilo Macaroni Factory in Hilo, HI. Per the history of this cracker, the Factory's recipe was based on a Hard Tack recipe shared by German cook from a visiting ship. Growing up in Hawaii, we ate these crackers with butter and guava jelly, or with avocado mashed wtih sugar. My parents would break the plain cracker up into a cup of coffee and milk and have it for breakfast! Here's a work-in-progress recipe for these crackers based on a Hard Tack recipe I found on the web.”
