Introduction

My mum was the leader for the local Know Nature Group when I was little and when sitting by the campfire this was part of the dinner. I have made this dough so many times, I know it by heart and hands. I have done it in bad plastic bags, in a clean bucket and on a flat clean rock. It's something comforting with blackened bread with pine needles in it wrapped around a sausage.

  • ... in the mug add cold and warm water until you have luke warm water. Add the water to your ziplock bag and mix a new mug of water, you will not need all of the water, add half to the bag.
  • Now zip the bag and knead it to blend from the outside or you can go the messy route and stick your hand in and knead.. add bit more water if needed. It should be a firm, plyable, not sticky dough.
