Well, clearly this is a bread and not a vegetable.

We’ve spent the week camping and though I did not attempt any new veggie recipes, we did try bannock for the first time and what a success!

After a long day spent hiking and swimming, a chewy carb is just the thing. Of course, if we were more organized it would have been great topped with some fire-roasted tomatoes.

To make this bread, combine 1.5 cups of flour, 1 tbsp. baking powder, and a pinch of salt in a ziplock bag before you leave for camping. In another small bottle add 1/8 of a cup safflower oil and and then when it comes time to make the bread, pour the oil into the ziplock and add 3/4 of a cup of water. Zip the bag up and then mix it all together in the bag.  This makes  for an easier clean up.

Form the dough into an oval or disc-like shape. We were able to make two with this recipe.  On a camping stove, cook it in a well greased skillet ( lard, butter, any fat really) for about 6 minutes a side.  On an actually camp fire it takes about 30 minutes, depending on how hot your fire is.

Who ate it?

Husband- Oh yeah.

Son #1- Yes.

Son #2- Absolutely loved it and ate like a champ. Then again, it is a carb, and we all know he loves those.

Around our house:

It is quite possible that we’ve let summer get to our heads around here! As soon as one of us says “maybe,” another one of us chimes in with “baby.”

Maybe baby we should get out of the sun.

      • The name does ring a bell, but we have not worked together yet. I’ve seen the name on court circuit schedules tho…. it’s a small community up here so we are bound to run in to each other eventually 🙂
