This weekend we are going camping with some good friends of ours, Dustin and Daphne. Dustin claims to be a master campfire chef. We always just used the Coleman gas stove growing up, so I will look forward to this smokey cuisine. My initial concern was how I would secure my morning cup of coffee. The answer: "Cowboy Coffee." I know there are other ways, but I am eager to try this more ancient method. I found this post with instructions on how to make it. Here is the overview:
- Bring one quart of water to a boil in a saucepan.
- Add 3/4 cup of ground coffee.
- Return to boil.
- Immediately remove from heat and cover.
- Wait till the grounds sink (approximately 5 minutes).
I will give a report on Dustin's campfire cooking and my cowboy coffee.
