Rusks

A rusk is a food that we encounter from the ancient times until today. Its a form of dry and crunchy bread that has received twice the usual exposure to fire (in a stove). Its recipe resulted from the need of rural families, where the wife was also busy in being involved in agricultural work, was not able to knead fresh bread on a daily basis. Therefore, she used to knead a large quantity of bread once, which was then consumed fresh as long as it could last (2-3 days) and the rest was roasted a second time in the oven, in order to expel excess moisture and last even more. There is a large variety of rusks that are produced from different kinds of flours. Made with simple ingredients, rusks have a high nutritional value as they contain plenty of fiber, B vitamins, vitamin E, and micronutrients.
