They're more 'biscuity' in texture - you pull them apart when you take them out of the oven and put them back in the oven to 'dry out' and become quite crumbly - eaten by bulders and farmworkers with cheese in their 'pack-up',


As my family didn't hail from Suffolk, I had to have a lesson  in rusk making from my future MIL before I married Wonky's father. 


Don't think he was so pernickety the second time around.

I wouldn't worry about a bit of discolouration at this time of year - autumn's on its way and those leaves have done their job and will be falling before too long.
