Cram:

The travel food of the Lake-men. Not very tasty, and very very tough.
If you want to know what cram is, I can only say that I don't know the recipe; but it is biscutish, keeps good indefinitely, is supposed to be sustaining, and is certainly not entertaining, being in fact very uninteresting except as a chewing exercise. It was made by the Lake-men for long journeys. (H.273)
