Hay Box Cooking
Thanks very much to Kathryn Henderson, who posted this great idea to the Guiding Mailing List! These recipes are to be used with the Hay Box oven described here.
Hay Box Stew - Ingredients are the same as for any stew you'd cook at home. Cut up vegetables small, and beef into cubes. Cook meat well. Bring water to hard rolling boil, allow to boil for 10 minutes, add meat and vegetables. Place in stewing pot with lid and place in hay box. (The vegetables will cook during the day). Cook for about 8 - 10 hours, then serve.
Oatmeal - Bring water to boil, add oatmeal and salt (raisons if you wish), place stewing pot with lid on in hay box and allow to cook overnight for about 8 - 10 hours. The oatmeal will be smooth and creamy and then of course you can add brown sugar, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, etc. to make it more appealing to the girls.
