Slab Bread / Hellebrød

A recipe for Stone Age bread gound on nrk.no
headingSlab Bread / Hellebrød

Why not bake your own bread when you’re camping? Baking bread on a slab of stone is bread baking Stone Age style. If you really want to create authentic northern European Stone Age bread replace the wheat grains and wheat flour in the recipe with rye grain and rye flour. The wheat had not come this far north at that time. And skip the salt and taste the bread with wild herbs that would have grown here then, for example, yarrow or nettles.

headingBlue Cheese Filled Bacon-Wrapped Mushrooms / Roquefortfylte Baconsurret Sopp

These delicious snacks can be made ready at home before you head for the hike and grilled on a campfire grill grid when you have set up camp, dinner is over and the tea water is boiling. If you don’t bother to bring a grid a few stick will work just as well.

You could make these snacks at home too of course, but we all know they will taste much, much better by the campfire – Ted  😉

Gáhkko – Sami Bread / Samisk Brød

A traditional Sami bread recipe found on mytaste.no
headingGáhkko – Sami Bread / Samisk Brød

Gáhkko is a traditional Sami flat bread /bread that has a faint taste of anise. Excellent, and delicious as an accessory for stews and soups, and gorgeous with any kind of cheese. There are countless recipes and ways to bake it, but the best way and what gives the bread the best flavour is to fry them in a dry frying pan on the campfire. It works just as fine to bake this bread on a griddle or in an oven as well. Some sami bakers  make them them large, some make them small.
