Saturday I decided go out back to the fire pit and put on a pot of bone-in chicken noodle soup.
I used some fat wood shavings, a few small fatwood sticks, some dry twigs from downed trees, and a Swedish fire steel to start the fire.
I batoned a little of the seasoned Birch Iíve been chopping on with random sharp objects.
and got the fire going
Then I started getting the soup ready to cook while the fire developed some embers. I whittled a digging stick to dig up some wild onions.
Then started cutting up the chicken.
Cut up the vegetables..
Put it all in a stock pot with a bale handle and added a few spices and put it on to cook.
After it boiled until the meat was good and done and the carrots were tender I added in some wide egg noodles.
And as the fire burned down I put the pot on the lower notch on the pot hanger and let it simmer for a bit
It was just starting to get dark when it got done.
So I took it inside and served it. Man it sure was good. :hugegrin:
