The Dutch oven is the original way to cook while camping, even when the early pioneers and settlers didn’t know they were camping! With a Dutch oven, an entirely new world of hearty eating opens up. Foods can be baked with dry heat or braised with moisture, while the larger size of a Dutch oven makes it easy to cook enough food for most groups at one time. The basics of Dutch oven cooking can be mastered with a little practice and a healthy appetite.
