    Cooking and or baking.

    There may be a thread already about the subject, which I can`t find any thing about on here.
    I made some Tomato Sauce to day, whilst the Tomatoes were reasonably cheap and at the moment, I am waiting for it to cool down, before I start bottling it. Does any one else here do some thing similar in baking / cooking etc etc.
    I have made Tom Sauce, Tom Relish, Plum Sauce years ago and I decided to give it another go. I saw a recipe for chutney in the old cook book and thought it might be a goer one day too, eventually.

    A good mate called me "Dough Boy" the other night while grabbing another slice of home made pizza, comes after a perfect bread in the camp oven a few weeks back.

    Nothing beats fresh cooked flour based goodies straight out of the oven or pan, breads, scones, pikelets, pancakes... doesn't matter if it's a yeast recipe or baking powder.

    A damper done just right with mixed spice and dry fruit covered in real butter is a campfire treat.
    Cheers

    I just spent a weekend camped with about 30 mates, an annual gathering which has been happening for the past 6 years & part of which is a loosely structured men's cook-off comp. No rules, although more kudos for preparation & cooking in full view of others utilising either the communal fire or individual 'choofers'. All the men prepare a 'dish' with enough for everyone to get a small portion, & later a voting process by everyone takes place to determine the winner of the spoon, an engraved wooden spoon made by the previous year's winner. (Pretty similar to our photo comp).

    This year I made my own choofer just before the weekend & used it with a wok to make 'Bananas in Pyjamas' - a Roothy inspired delicacy - basically deep fried chocolate banana spring rolls. Roothy may not exactly be a hero of mine, but my offerings were a real winner. Plenty coming back for seconds & thirds! Not only did I win the spoon, but I am also the first ever winner of a second spoon, having also won one back in 2011 for my home made 'Cuppa soup'.

    The choofer couldn't have worked better. Pretty chuffed for a first effort.

    Brilliant work..

    I currently have in the freezer to can about 2L of tomato pasata. Think I'll split some off and make some burbon bbq sauce..

    But we always make our own pizza doh, twice rised..

    And I'm always keen to throw a damper in the CO when out bush for a fee days..
    Nothing beats warm damper with jam and cream..

    My Olds have a huge fig tree so usually get a jar or 2 of the good old Fig Jam.

    I don`t mind making scones, sponges, or 12 inch by 12 inch Christmas cakes and the scones taste nice with home made jam. I ended up with 12 and a half scotch bottles of tom sauce.
