Cooking with Firewood
... cooking on a campfire ...
from hot dogs to fish to marshmallows to stews - everything tastes
better cooked over a fire!
When cooking on a campfire the food
is likely to have a high concentration of
fat and carbohydrates as this is
necessary for hiking and back packing.
Quite often due to the weight carrying
restrictions popular foods include
instant soups, pastas, freeze-dried foods
and food which has been pre-cooked
and just needs warming up.
Campfire cooking is without doubt the
original form of cooking and there are
various methods of using this type of heat.
It can sometimes prove to be quite a
difficult way as you do not really have a
kitchen area and you need to mark out
a suitable spot for your fire always
taking care not to cause any unnecessary
fire damage to the surrounding area.
There are many different ways of cooking
on a campfire: Boiling; Grilling; Roasting;
Baking; Frying and using an oven.
Boiling is probably the most used way
whether it is simply making a brew or using
the hot water for washing and cleaning.
Roasting food on long skewers over
the flames is a popular way to eat hot dogs
I think everyone has enjoyed Baked Potatoes
that are wrapped in foil and left to cook in the
embers of the fire.
Using pots to cook your food over the
fire can prove to be quite difficult unless
the pot is well secured and preferably
supported by metal struts.
An easier way is to wait until the fire has
stopped flaming and then to use a couple
of logs to rest the pot on - replacing them
as they are burnt.
All of our firewoods can be used
and each one will give a unique
flavour to the food.
Charcoal does not give the same
deep rich flavour to the food as the
perfumed hardwood logs do, although it
is more convenient to use but
can be quite messy.
We have convenient handy sized
boxes for your fire.
Just enough to add a new twist to your
Campfire cooking is all about having a
good time with friends and enjoying
tasty food, heavenly smells and
being outdoors, whatever the weather!
Your food doesn't have to be burnt and
raw in the middle!
There are many fabulous recipes
using the simplest and tastiest ingredients
for a truly delicious food experience!
Go on - have a go!
... it's not just firewood ...
