Here is an old recipe for thin bread that was common before people got stoves in theirhomes. Since it calls for baking in a frying pan, the recipe is of course also well suitable for camping cooking. The frying pan works just as well on the campfire as it does on the stovetop at home – Ted
When the United States entered World War I in 1917 food was desperately needed to supply the European civilian and military allies. Herbert Hoover was appointed as head of the U. S. Food Administration and launched a campaign to conserve food. Americans were urged to voluntarily stretch the food supply by cutting waste, substituting plentiful for scarce ingredients and participating in the food-conservation program popularly known as “Hooverizing,” which included wheatless Mondays and Wednesdays, meatless Tuesdays, and porkless Thursdays and Saturdays.
The Food Administration sponsored a program to educate the people about nutrition and food preservation to help persuade them that eating less would not be harmful. Signs and posters proclaimed, “Food Will Win the War” and pitched what became known as the “Doctrine of the Clean Plate.” The National War Garden Commission encouraged Americans to “put the slacker land to use” by growing war gardens and to preserve by canning and drying all the food they could not use while fresh.

Tip: A fun way to let the loaves rise is to put them in a basket so they get a patterned from the weave in the basket. Brush loaves and sprinkle a lot of flour in the basket before you put the dough in it to rise. Make sure you have enough flour so the dough does not cling to the basket as you vault loaves out.
