  • Looking for good recipes...What's your favorite? What do your Scouts like?

    I'm going to drop this in camping, because what's better than a meal over the campfire after a hard days hike?

    Main course: Standard stew, but use apple cider instead of water/broth (Dutch oven).

    Dessert: Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheese Cake (done in a Dutch oven).

    Beverage: Hot-hot chocolate (with a dash of cayenne pepper).

      Good for a winter's camp:
      Layer Cake Stew: Need a LARGE, deep skillet, preferably cast iron, with cover/lid. Big knife, cutting board, spatula.
      Ingredients: Half pound of sliced bacon, Pound of lean ground beef, 1 large onion, two or three large potatoes, two or three carrots, salt&pepper. If you wish, include celery or other veggies.
      Directions: WASH YOUR HANDS. Soap the OUTSIDE of skillet to make cleanup easier. Cover INSIDE bottom of skillet with bacon, leave no gaps. Crumble up ground beef, cover the bacon, leave no gaps. Salt and pepper. Peel , slice onions 1/4" thick, lay over beef. Wash and scrub potatoes, clean and cut out eyes,bad spots. Do not peel, slice 1/4 thick, lay out and overlap onions. Scub carrots, cut off ends, bad spots. Slice on diagonal (fancy!) 1/4" thick. Cover potatoes with carrots. Place on fire, note it is pretty heavy and will need good support. If there is no steam from under lid in 5 minutes, you need a hotter fire. Leave alone for 30 minutes. At that time, (Heavy and hot! Be careful!). Take off lid and stick potatoes with fork, should be soft. If not, back on fire for another 5 minutes. Take off fire (Heavy and Hot!) . Scoop out with spatula, big spoon.

      Note lots of good gravy , serve with biscuits and catsup.
