Make Your Own Camping Food
So, if you’re beginning to live a more preparedness lifestyle, you’re probably looking to expand on your alternative cooking techniques and ideas for grid-down situations. These could be days without power after a local or natural disaster or even something more long-term.
There is also a bonus rocket stove section to learn to make your own rocket stove to have in the wilderness (or even in your own backyard!). We absolutely love our Premier Rocket Stove – read the review here, which includes instructions on making your own.
What You Need for Camping Recipes:
- Cast iron dutch oven
- Cast iron skillet
- Heavy Duty Gloves
- Cast Iron Lid Lifter
- Campfire tripod
- S’more sticks (though we know you can just use a branch)
