Dutch Oven Cooking Demo 101

Hosted by JSU Field Schools demos will be happening throughout the day, presented by DeSoto State Park Naturalist Brittney Hughes.

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!


This is a demonstration so you can swing by anytime, & the best time is when food is just coming off the fire. Drop in whenever you like & check out the food!
