I’ve been to Gallipoli, it was a very scary bus ride followed by a very scary ferry trip. But the moment we got there, the sheer beauty and history of Gallipoli overcame us. The ANZACS probably wouldn’t be impressed with these healthy-ish ANZAC biscuits, but they are awesome all the same.
One hundred years ago Australia, the nation as we know it was born. Not in the true sense as it was discovered long before that, but in the coming together of people and the strength needed to build a democracy. The ANZACs gave their lives for the nation that we know today and the world that we live in and for this I am thankful.
So, if like me the Last Post brings you to tears, there is nothing more fitting to eat tomorrow than an ANZAC biscuit. There are so many recipes out there. Let’s be honest, mine is a modernised version. But it fits with my cupboard contents. Which is how the original came to be- it was a make-do biscuit.
