Do you know what rusks are for? “For eating, of course!”,
you will probably say. Well, yes, but what else? For example, have you given a thought that some people might give rusks to their babies during teething? Oh, yes, they do. In fact, this hard bread can be quite good for gnawing and soothing the gum pain.
However, it’s said that rusks first appeared not because of babies, but because of adults. Can you think of the reason? Back in time, the ‘twice-cooked bread’
used to serve as long-lasting food for the army and sailors. Quite interesting, huh!
Anyway, today we’re going to show you 3 cool, easy and super delicious recipes
that include rusks:
