Outdoor Cooking … Made Easy by Joseph D Bates Jr published in 1955

Outdoor Cooking

From the book intro: Let’s have fun in the great out-of-doors, where the blue sky is our roof and where the ever changing beauty of streams, lakes and hills makes food taste so much better than it ever could in the familiar confines of the family dining room!

Those of us who already are backyard chefs will find in this booklet many suggestions which make outdoor cooking much easier; plus culinary hints and recipes which are refreshing changes from the unimaginative frankfurters and hamburgsandwiches which too often become a habit.

Those who never have tried outdoor cooking before should find that preparing good food is much simpler than the uninitiated might suppose.

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.
