Campfire Cookin’ ~Dutch Oven Workshop

Saturday, October 12, 2012

 

 

Dutch Oven Demonstration


Saturday, October 13, 2012~From 4:00 to 6:00?
Dutch ovens have been in use for hundreds of years; especially when our country was expanding and families were on the move. Unable to bring their large cook stoves with them, women learned how to cook entire meals from stews & soups to bread & desserts, in their Dutch ovens. Learn the basics about Dutch ovens, how to clean & care for your cookware, AND cook (& eat!) dinner & dessert at the same time!
Starts around 4:00 p.m, located at the DeSoto State Park Campfire Ring in the Improved Campground. This is a demostration, so the best part is when food is just coming off the fire!
Seating is limited, so bring your own comfortable camp chair if you wish. Drop in whenever you like & check out the food
