ANZAC Hemp Biscuits

There are conflicting stories told as to why Anzac biscuits became so popular.  One such story tells that biscuits were sent by wives and women’s groups to soldiers abroad because the ingredients didn’t spoil easily and the biscuits kept well during naval transportation. Another story was that they where produced and eaten by Australians and Kiwis at home, in order to raise funds for the war. There is however evidence that suggests that indeed soldiers were sent homemade biscuits during World War I and the history points to the Anzac biscuit recipe.

Both stories are precious and important to remember those difficult times.  We are sure that many people enjoy these delicious treats still today and our Hemp Chef has created these delicious historical treats for you to try, ANZAC Hemp biscuits with a hemp twist … Enjoy!
