This past weekend Wild Earth’s Apprentices were out in the snow exploring the joys of campfire cooking!
Our staff was onsite extra early, lighting a fire at 7:30am to ensure a solid bed of coals for the day’s cooking experiments. It was well worth it!
Using a spunhungin the team cooked a stringed chicken-breast gyro (skewered on a white pine sapling), we also cooked picadas corn tortillas on hot bluestone and granite stones while beans cooked over the fire on another spunhungin.
Lunch was topped off with fresh maple sap hemlock tip tea, eggs cooked inside of orange peels, and freshly cooked maple cream!
Check out the photos.
