Dutch Oven originally uploaded by Ryan McLean
First to cover last week’s poll… A big congratulations go out to “Martha Washington” for her winning essay about why she loves to hate Burnsville! I want to again thank everyone who submitted essays as well as those of you that voted for a winner. MW, I will be in touch with you via the e-mail you have provided about getting the award to you.
This week’s poll is about baking in Dutch ovens. We have had two Dutch ovens for quite some time but up until this weekend had not found the time to put them to any use. Josh, Kim and I went camping in Rice County and I decided to drag the heavy contraption along. I loved cooking and baking in them as a kid in Scouts and I really want to get back into it. I know you can do some really cool shit in Dutch ovens and figure what better way to get good at it but to try it myself.
Do you or have you ever used a Dutch oven for baking? If so, what are some of your favorite recipes? I have tasted everything from peach cobbler to donuts (which we made last night) and have heard of people doing everything from pizza to fresh baked bread right in their campsites. If you have any recipes you are particularly fond of please share them below! If you haven’t used a Dutch oven, why? Is the preparation and maintenance of them too much work? Perhaps you had no idea the ovens could be so versatile?
