Hi All, I am contsantly searching through the Lovely Grub Section for ideas and inspiration to use, and also to pass on to my Explorer Scouts. We frequently cook on open fires, and, it can get challenging to come up with simple new ideas for them to try. There are loads on this site, and I'm sure that people have many more in thier memory banks too. I thought it might be useful/fun to share those simple, minumal/no ustensil reciepies in one thread. I apologies if it's been done before, and if it has, by all means delete/close this thread. From my point of view, I am hoping that this thread could become a useful resource for fellow scouters, and others who are running short of new ideas! I'll start the ball rolling withs a couple of my simple favouites. Egg in a tatty - simple but an effective, tasty and filling. Cut the top couple of centimeters off a Baking potatoe, and hollow out the main body, leaving a wall thickness of around 5-10 mm. Crack an egg into the hollow, and re-attch the top with a couple of cocktail sticks. Place in the embers for half hours or so, devoure when potatoe is cooked through! You can wrap it in a couple of layers of foil to protact the skin, but not essential. Poor Man's Christmas pud Butter a slice of bread, and place butter side down onto a sheet of tin foil (double layer it, and make sure it is a sheet large enough to completely wrap up the bread). Dice up some apple, mix in some sultanas, chopped orange, (any other fruit you like really) add some cinnamon, and spread onto the slice of bread. Cover with brown sugar, preferable soft dark stuff. Better a second slice of bread, and place on to (butter side) up to make a sandwich. Place in the embers of a decent cooking fire and toast for 15 min, and enjoy! If you are feeling very lazy, you can change out the fruit mix with mince-meat.
