Making Friends with a Giant Old Cast Iron Dutch Oven

By on March 30, 2011

My fondest memories of outdoor cooking etc were with my family, camping numerous places as a child. My mother had a giant old cast iron dutch oven that she would throw ‘a little bit of everything’ into ( this was usually leftovers, etc ) . This would cook at our campsite all day until it smelled wonderful, and, after a day of playing, swimming etc we were hungry! I cant think of a time my mother did not invite any neighboring campers over for some ‘everything’ stew and cornbread. She made many friends this way over the years.
