This weekend I attended a training camp for Guide Leaders. I learned lots and lots of useful things about taking a group of kids camping. One of my favorite things was learning about all of the ways you can cook food using coals, tin foil and cans. It's impressive!
I took pictures of a few methods, but there were certainly others:
Coals + dutch oven = baked bread
Egg carton stoves - we cooked tin foil wrapped desserts over these. I had chocolate stuffed bananas!
And a coffee can stove; perfect I've been told for pancakes, eggs, bacon and in this case, quesadillas!
A turkey was also cooked using a trash can and coals and a ham was cooked in a dutch oven using coals. We baked three cakes using 'box stoves' and made a giant pot of soup using coals.
I've learned a ton!
