How-to: Five Different Ways To Make Bread Over A Campfire
These 5 cooking methods are easy, effective, and fun! Each can inspire different ways to improvise when cooking bread – just a little brainstorming required.
Here are a few words from Kenneth Kramm, the creator of this great clip:
“I start with bannock made from Bisquick and select from five alternative cooking methods: (1) ash cooking, (2) frying, (3) roasting, (4) baking or (5) boiling. If I want the bread to be sweet, I add brown sugar, cinnamon and raisons. If I want a healthy breakfast, I add oatmeal. Sometimes I cook bannock in an orange rind or an onion peal.
Homemade Bisquick Mix:
4 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup vegetable shortening or butter
Bread is more than just a food. Think of how the word is used: Work that earns a solid income is often referred to as “bread and butter.” The words “bread” and “dough” are slang for cash. When people “break bread” they share more than just a meal; they come together in both body and spirit.
It’s not surprising that making bread outdoors is special. From the beginning of recorded history, bread has been a vital food source for people around the globe. Over the centuries, it has traveled and evolved, reflecting both the unity and diversity of human culture, and the ability of people to adapt to their environment.”
