Camp Oven Cooking – You’ve gotta love it!

Hands up if you think one of the best parts of camping and being in the outdoors is camp food.

On our travels we try and cook around an open fire using our cast-iron camp oven at every opportunity…

It is a way of bringing us all together at the end of a day, to talk about what we did, our experiences, and usually the only sounds you hear are the crackle of twigs burning, of birds heading to their favourite roost for the night, and of laughter, friendly banter being exchanged around the fire…

Janet, my partner, is a wonderful cook, and without fail she will cook up a batch of scones or a damper in the camp oven to be devoured with lashings of butter and golden syrup much to the delight of all…

Yep, camp food, you’ve gotta love it…

    I am the camp cook, though the old school campfire is banned for 4 or 5 months of the year over here so you gotta make do with a nice gas cooker. I still like cast iron pans and my jaffle iron, but you don’t get that lovely smokey smell through everything 😉

    When I first started camping as an adult I belong to a 4×4 club and one of the guys who traveled with us cooked a full turkey dinner in Dutch Ovens, including peach cobbler for desert. A whole turkey in dutch ovens, it was amazing! Yes I love camping food.
