Rohais Belrose. Dutch Oven. December 17th , 2016.
Your imagination is your only limit to what you can cook with this classic camping implement. You could bake a chicken or a roast, make a hearty stew, bake homemade buttermilk biscuits, or prepare a multitude of desserts. I have found that recipes that have more moisture in them work best for this type of cooking. The drier the recipe, the higher the risk of burning the bottom of the food. It is tempting to put too many coals under the base, thus causing the bottom of your dish to be burned.
Dutch Oven cooking is done with coals. So first step is to set up an area for setting the Dutch Oven. You can use a fire pit, but I prefer using a metal oil drip pan on the ground. The nice metal ones are hard to find now, but check your auto parts store. Most auto parts store have oil drip pans, but they are plastic. However, I have seen a metal catch pan that is very shallow - almost like a large cookie sheet. Pet cage trays or garbage can lids will work also. It needs to be larger than your Dutch Oven and have some room to store extra coals. We want to use a pan to protect the ground and make clean up easy. Remember Leave No Trace!
Accessories are an important part of your camp cooking gear! Some are just out-and-out essential, while some you may find are more of a luxury. I leave you to decide whether you want to stick to the basics or go with the works. Following is a small list of some handy tools that will make camp cooking easily possible for the camp cook. Some Dutch oven accessories include...
Over generations, this cookware has made it`s mark in the kitchen and outside cooking. Mainly though, it is popular for long and slow cooking. Call it however you may, the casserole dish of Britain, tetsunabe of Japan, the Australian bush stew or cocotte by the French, the dutch oven is ideal for cooking the same meals that it was originally made for back in the 1600s.
A Dutch oven offers you a good way to make stews and pot roasts. It resembles a cooking pot with really thick walls but this time, it has short stands or legs and a lid that fits tightly over it. Selecting a Dutch oven correctly allows you to make the best meals for your family without sacrificing quality and taste.
