Does anyone have any good campfire recipes or simple camping stove cooking info? i am in scouts and i wanna cook some new stuff. i am tired of frying biscuits for doughnuts and opening cans of tomatoes for chili.;j
Lots of stuff here including scout’s recipes and what can be done ahead of time.
You can make dampers with flour, water and salt. Add enough water to make a soft dough, then wrap it around a non-toxic stick like a corn dog. Then cook it.
Here’s a few good websites that may help you out.
From one Scout to another, I hope these help you out.
I tried some “foil packs in the ashes” last year and they were surprisingly good. They consisted of raw, cubed chicken breast, rice, veggies, a dollop of condensed mushroom soup, salt and pepper. I froze them before the trip and had them on day 3 or 4. They were double wrapped and we threw the outer layer away and used the inner layer for a bowl. We threw them in last nights campfire ashes and went canoeing for 3 or 4 hours. They were just right for lunch.
My friend reports her family baked a cake using a smallish foil lined box and coals. She said they assumed about 90 degress per coal.
I am going to check out the links posted above, also.
