METHOD

 

Start a fire.  In a bowl, mix all of the dry ingredients in a bowl, then slowly add a splash of oil and the water until you get a dough like mixture. It should have the texture of playdoh. Be careful not to add too much water. You probably won’t need all of it.

Roll the dough into a snake and then start to wrap it around your stick,

Hold the stick over the campfire, slowly turning so it cooks evenly on each side.

Once it is browned on the outside and makes a hollow sound when tapped, it is ready to eat!

TIPS:

It is best to use green wood to cook on the fire, as it still has sap in it and will not set alight. Green wood is wood that is fresh from the tree rather than dry brittle wood. Green wood bends rather than snaps. It is a good idea to either whittle the bark off the end you will use for cooking, or burn it in the fire to remove any dirt or germs.
