Bannock on a Stick

Bannock on a Stick
By: Josh Day & Zach St.Amour


Ingredients


  • Makes 5-6 large stick-bannocks
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 1/4 cups water


Mixing

Mix all of the ingredients together.  Add approximately 1 cup of water first and slowly add the remainder until it is just firm enough to form on a stick.  The bannock batter can be less firm if cooking in a frying pan.

Cooking

Stick Method – Spoon up a mid-sized handful of batter. Use lots of flour to keep from sticking to hands while patting it flat and shaping it onto stick. Make sure the edges are well incorporated into each other, or they will separate while baking.  Cook 7-10 min over coals until golden brown. Rotate continually to encourage even baking and prevent burning.

What to Improve Upon

I thought that this recipe went really well, I think this because it was really easy to do, tasted great, and it took very little time from mixing the ingredients to eating the finished bannock. Next time, I would bring more topping for it such as different jams and something a bit more sugary just to try them out and see how it tastes.

Cinnamon Maple Bannock

By: Anna Streib and Sydney Switzer

Ingredients
3 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup shortening or lard, cubed
3/4 - 1 cup water

Instructions
1: Mix all of the dry ingredients
2: Cut shortening or lard (can be replaced with butter) into the mixture (STOP HERE IF THE BATTER IS NOT BEING USED RIGHT AWAY)
3: Gradually add water and mix the dough
4: Mix dough until you can handle the dough without it being too sticky
5: Take as much dough as desired, and spread it evenly, and somewhat thinly around a stick about the width of a hot dog.
6: Cook the dough over hot coals for about 10-15 minutes, or until it becomes brown on the outside, and removes easily from the stick. 

This bannock recipe ended up being a great success. We followed the exact steps, and prepared the mixture beforehand, at home. We also added 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, as well as a half teaspoon of nutmeg, to the dry mixture, to give the dough some flavor. At school, we gradually added water until our dough was a good consistency, then we separated the dough into 4 even pieces, so this way we had extras in case some didn't turn out. We wrapped the pieces around the sticks, and cooked it over hot coals for about 10-15 minutes. Once they were done cooking, we ate it served with butter and maple syrup, and even though our first batch turned out perfectly, we still made a second batch and ate it all. If given the chance to make bannock on a stick again, we would not have changed anything since we were very satisfied with our final product, although we would really like to try making various other flavors, such as a pizza bannock.

Bannock on a stick: Ashley and Senna

Bannock on a stick: Yo,Bri & Amy

Bannock on a stick 

Recipe:
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tsp. baking powder
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ tsp. sugar
- 3 Tbsp. lard, bacon grease or canola oil
- 1 cup cold water

How we prepared it: 
- It advance we mixed all the dry ingredients in a bowl
- At school we mixed in the oil and water 
- We found a fire box. Started a fire and got dry wood to burn. We found branches to cook our bannock on  [ reasonable size not thin but not to big] 
- wrapped the dough around the stick and let in cook over coals. 

Since the coals from the previous fire were almost out we decided to make another one,since most people were already sharing one fire and there was no space. We went out and collected wood and started a fire near the small stream . The boys [TJ and Ty ]help us maintain our fire as we were cooking the bannock. Our recipe was well done considering that the consistency was perfect comparing to other groups with their dough  seemed to be dripped of of their stick. It requires patients. In the end mine tasted great and was perfectly brown ,since I had waited for the wood to burn out so i could use the coals to cook the bread rather than letting the fire burn it. With some butter the bread tasted great. The only thing I would do next time is to heat the stick before we put the dough on. Heating the stick which will allow the bread to cook from the inside out and come out perfectly.

Dutch Oven: Crooked River Mud Cake

Ingredients:
1 18oz box chocolate cake mix
1 7oz jar marshmallow cream  or half a bag of mini marshmallow
1 cup crushed pecans
1 cup semi sweet chocolate morsels
1 12oz can cherry pastry filling

Directions:
Prepare the cake mix per the directions on the box then stir in the pecans an chocolate morsels.Next, spoon in the marshmallow and cherry pastry filling. Place the mixture into a lightly greased 10' Dutch oven. Place the lid on your dutch oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes Use 20 charcoal briquettes for the outdoor cooking of this recipe with charcoal as your fuel. Place 14 lit briquettes on top and 6 underneath your dutch oven.You may need more coals in windy or cold weather.

Result:
This started off in a rather challenging matter seeing as the day we chose to cook it, it was raining which most likely effected the amount of coals needed even though we set up a tarp. Because of this, the assignment was rather time consuming. Although the set up was difficult, mixing the ingredients was easy and the cake itself was agreeable. The only problem encountered was that the outer edges and the bottom were slightly burned; however, the rest was a nice, cake-like brown. I would rate this cake as good. If I were to improve for next time, I would add more coals on the top to properly disperse the heat.

* This assignment was done with Debbie and Leslie.

Hawaiian Pizza

To get inspired before choosing our recipe, Leul and I looked on Pinterest.com, a trendy social network that is known for its amount of recipes as blog posts. We never settled on a recipe that was given to us by a pinterest user, but instead, we looked for inspiration and agreed upon making a Hawaiian Pizza. All our ingredients came from Farm Boy, following the advice that Tristan gave to me. We used two pre made pizza crusts and cut them to fit inside a dutch oven. We then added Farm Boy brand pizza sauce and mozzarella cheeses and ham.The final touch was the pineapples, this was a crucial part to making it great. I would definitely add them in again just to add the great smell and taste.


Ingredients(2 Pizzas):
2 X Farm Boy Pizza Sauce
1 X Farm Boy Pizza Sauce
2 X Regular thickness Maplewood Ham slices
1 X Pineapple (cut into little pieces)
1 X Mozzarella cheese Bag (250 g)


-Dutch oven (1 per pizza)
-20 coals (2 pizzas)
-Ove glove + tongs
-Tin Foil
-Fire tools and Fire starting tools


Instructions:
Heat up a total of 20 coals if you're making 2 pizzas, 10 coals if you're only making one. Assemble the pizza ingredients together in the oven before placing it near the coals and tin foil. When the coals are heated enough to be white (or 375 to 400 degrees F), place five under the Dutch oven and 5 on top but still contained under the tin foil. After folding the the tin foil in a manner that will allow the oven to receive maximum heat, let the pizza cook for 20-22 minutes. Avoid opening the lid at all costs, it lets heat escape and affects cook time drastically.

Chili - Andrew Buist and Jake Daigle



Vegetarian Dutch Oven Chili
Rating: *****
By Andrew and Jake

A quick and easy chili with a lot of flavour. 

Ingredients:


  • - 2 bay leaves
  • - 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • - 2 tablespoons dried oregano
  • - 1 tablespoon salt
  • - 2 stalks celery, chopped
  • - 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • - 3 (28 ounce) cans whole peeled tomatoes, crushed
  • - 1/4 cup chili powder
  • - 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • - 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, drained
  • - 1 (15 ounce) can black beans
  • - 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn
  • - Sour Cream
  • - Grated Cheese

  Instructions:

1. Heat up dutch oven with around 16 coals. When hot, add onion, bay leaves, cumin, oregano, and salt. Cook and stir until onion is tender, then mix in the garlic and celery (and any other veggies if you chose to add them). Keep cooking until veggies are soft.

2. Mix in tomatoes, chili powder, black pepper, beans and corn. Cover up the dutch oven and let it simmer for around 45 minutes. Serve with sour cream and/or cheese on top.

  Hints:

- The more coals the better, specifically while you wait for all of the chili to cook, allowing the veggies to soften easier and so the chili is warmer when served.

- For a more "meatier" version, add about 2 pounds of lean ground beef (precook before hand just in case) when adding in the tomatoes.

- Try to avoid cooking while it is raining, if it is, try to make a shelter

****/*****

Recipe:
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 minced onion
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
2 pounds extra-lean ground beef
3 slices bread, toasted and crumbled
7 buttery round crackers, crushed
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 1/2 tablespoons sour cream
1 1/2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 (15 ounce) can tomato sauce, divided
1/4 cup milk (optional)
3 tablespoons ketchup

Steps
  1. Add all of the ingredients in a bowl
  2. Put all of the mixed ingredients in the Dutch oven.
  3. Cook for about 40-50 minutes
  4. Eat
To get the Dutch oven to the appropriate temperature we used a chart that told us how many coals we needed and where to put them.  Wrapping the Dutch oven in tinfoil keeps the heat, this helped us make sure that the temperature did not drop.

Dutch Oven Beef Stew

How it went:

Although it turned out thinner and more like soup than stew, the taste was delicious. The recipe called for a packaged spice blend, but we decided to make our own blend by using steak spice and oregano leaves, not too difficult, but it still gave us a choice about what spices were in it. The recipe also called for the steak cubes to be coated in flour before cooking in order to help the broth thicken into gravy. The steak was cooked without flour, but the taste was still good.

What I would do differently:

If I used this recipe again I definitely would try to make it thicker and into more of an actual stew. I would also put more vegetables in just to make it go a bit further. I would also try putting less coals around the dutch oven and let it simmer for longer to see if it made a difference in how thick the gravy was.


All in all a delicious recipe, and no true "mistakes"


Recipe:

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless beef sirloin steak
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 package McCormick Beef Stew Seasoning Mix
  • 3 cups of water
  • 5 cups frozen vegetables of your choice

Directions

  • Coat beef with flour. heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large Dutch oven on medium-high heat. add 1/2 of the beef; brown on all sides. repeat with remaining beef, adding remaining 1 tablespoon oil. return all beef to Dutch oven.
  • Stir in Seasoning Mix and water. add vegetables; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. 

Beef Stew



***- The beef stew that me and Hannah made was okay, but it definitely could have been better.

Ingredients
  • 2 pounds boneless beef sirloin steak
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 package McCormick Beef Stew Seasoning Mix
  • 3 cups of water
  • 5 cups frozen vegetables of your choice

Directions

  • Coat beef with flour. heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in large Dutch oven on medium-high heat. add 1/2 of the beef; brown on all sides. repeat with remaining beef, adding remaining 1 tablespoon oil. return all beef to Dutch oven.
  • Stir in Seasoning Mix and water. add vegetables; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender. 

For our Dutch oven assignment, I made the beef at home so that we could make our stew in good time during class. when we were outside starting our assignment Hannah was the one who started the fire. After we got the fire started we put the coals in and I started to prepare the food in the Dutch oven. we had put the Dutch oven on the fire for a couple minutes so that it could heat up while the coals heated up as well. the water wasn't thickening because i had forgotten to put flour on the beef before I cooked it. we ended up borrowing some flour from Mrs Hurley's food room. I think we made a good team and got things done pretty well. the stew didn't turn out how I expected it to but it was still good non the less. if I was to ever make this stew again in the Dutch oven I definitely would have made sure to put the flour on the beef. it would've made all the difference. in the end both me and Hannah enjoyed the stew, even if it didn't come out as we expected it to. Hannah helped me a lot with the assignment.

Peach Cobbler Dutch Oven - Fail

                                                              Dutch Oven - Peach Cobbler 
                                                                      Mackenzie Burns 
                                                                                         

                                                                            Rating: N/A 

Ingredients 
2 29 oz. cans peaches
1 Stick butter
2 c Flour
2 c Sugar
2 ts Vanilla
2 ts Baking powder
1/8 ts Salt
2 c Milk

Directions 
In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt). In a large Dutch oven, melt the butter over coals. To the dry ingredients, add the milk and vanilla. Whisk well to combine. Pour the batter into the Dutch oven with the melted butter. Pour in the peaches on top. Cover with lid and place coals on top. Cook for 20-30 minutes over the coals, checking often. 

Result
        What happens when you try to make the teachers favorite dessert? You end up with a repulsive, gooey, liquidy clump of "cake" with peaches on top... This peach cobbler did not end up anything like I expected. 

      I followed the directions exactly as they said. As I started to make the mixture to put into the dutch oven, I noticed that it was way too liquidy to be able to bake. I had to find some extra flour to mix in to make it a little bit thicker. I feel like this recipe would have been fine if it called for one cup of milk as oppose to two cups. The recipe also called for a full stick of butter...Repulsive right? Yup. Once the whole stick melted I noticed that there was way too much in the bottom of the dutch oven compared to the amount of mix I had to put in. I took out about half the amount of butter and it was still way too much. It suggested that the peach cobbler be baked for around 20-30 minutes. After thirty minutes I checked on it and it was still liquid so I left it for another half hour. You could tell that the bottom was cooking but there was nothing going on on top, the peaches and all the liquid in the middle was like boiling like water. It smelt good for a little bit until I took it off the coals and opened it up. It smelt disgusting and there was no way I was taste testing it. I knew that it had failed. 

I am glad I tried to make it from scratch instead of just use a box of white cake but am pretty disappointed that it didn't work. If I was to try this again I would use a different recipe for sure. The recipe guided me the wrong way with the wrong measurements.

Dutch Oven Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Rated: ****

Ingredients:
2 Tubes of Pillsbury Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix
1 Bottle of Sealtest Whipped Cream
1 Bottle of Maraschino

Instructions: 
Any kind of Pillsbury giant cookie could be made with the same instructions, this is an example of a chocolate chip one.

-First open the tubes of Pillsbury cookie dough and spread them across the bottom of the dutch oven, the layer of cookie should be about an inch and a half thick.
-Next put the cover on the Dutch oven, cover it with hot coals, and wrap it with aluminium foil.
-Check the cookie after 10 minutes, and after that every couple of minutes, to make sure that it is cooking evenly.
-Remove the cookie when it is thoroughly browned and cooked through.

Instructions: Any combination of flavors that sound good to you can be tried. This example is apple, yellow cake, lemon-lime, and cinnamon. Another might be cherry filling, chocolate cake, cola, and powdered sugar. Or, blueberry filling, white cake, and grape soda.

Spread the fruit filling across the bottom of the dutch oven.
Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the filling - do not stir it.
Pour a little more than 1/2 of the soda on top of the mix from a low height so it does not splatter all over.
With a fork, mix the soda into the cake mix, being careful not to mix it into the filling too much - a little is ok.
When the cake mix is stirred, sprinkle cinnamon on top.
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes.

Serves 8.

This is a great and easy recipe that can be used on any camping trip or just made at home.  Before making your cobbler check the size of your Dutch Oven first to make sure you have enough pie filling to cover the bottom you may need more or less filling depending on the size.

**** Excellent, I will make this at home.
This recipe was perfect; the directions were perfect, ingredients and amounts of each.
It took us a long time to make our fire but if we did make it sooner we would have been able to serve it to our whole class.  Next time we will keep that in consideration.
