Camp Cooking Made Easyfrom: Maxx Adventure Travel
Camp cooking can be as fancy or simple as you want. If you want to prepare quick and simple, but nutritious meals, while camping, camp cooking doesn't even need a fire. But if you're planning to fuel your camping trip with a feast, camp cooking can allow you to make hot, healthy foods that are as good as you can make them at home.
Camp cooking doesn't have to be limited to sandwiches and baked potatoes wrapped in aluminum foil. Almost any cooking method you use in the kitchen can be duplicated around the campfire. For example, use a dutch oven or pit cooking to bake your food. You can also easily fry foods in a pan over a grill, or boil, braise and roast.
Here are are some camping items you should take with you if you're planning on preparing some meals around the campfire. These common kitchen items will allow you to duplicate tasty meals while you are out of doors.
* Salt and pepper
* Other of your favorite herbs and spices
* Cooking oil
* Pot holder
* Hand-held can opener
* Aluminum foil
* Tongs and spatula
* Cutting knives
* Cutting board
* Mixing bowl
* Paper or plastic silverware, plates and cups
If there are only a few campers and you want just simple camp cooking, try the easy and quick technique of tin can cooking. All you need is a clean tin can -- a one gallon size can works well. Your source of heat can be a small campfire, or if wood burning is prohibited, a small buddy burner will work well, which can be found at sporting good stores or online. Place your meal in the tin can and simply heat the contents of your can over a flame. You'll have a hot meal ready in minutes and this works great for soups, beans and tuna fish.
A more time-consuming camp cooking technique that also produces tasty meals is pit cooking. Pit cooking is great for items that can be wrapped in aluminum foil to be cooked. It is also a great camp cooking method if you are using a dutch oven or cast iron cookware. Pit cooking warms your food by heating rocks and coals that are buried in the ground. As the rocks cool off, their emitted heat cooks the food.
To pit cook, first dig a hole that is about three times larger than your cookware. Line the pit with rocks and build a fire in the middle. Once the fire has burned rapidly for about an hour, push the hot coals and rocks into the center. Layer your wrapped food or covered skillets on top of the rocks and coals and place more on top. After a few hours, you'll have some delicious camp food to enjoy.
