Damper bread on the fire

A lovely morning once more for Cedars class. The hazel sticks they had recently selected, cut down and whittled were put to very good use, to cook bread dampers.

First of all, water was added to the bread mix…and the outside of the bag was squished and squashed until a dough formed!

Next, everyone rolled their┬áball of dough into a long sausage…then carefully wrapped it round and around their stick

Next they were heated over the hot embers of our fire. The dampers needed to be turned to make sure they were evenly cooked.

Last of all…the best bit of the morning…the dampers were drizzled with honey and eaten while they were still warm. The boys were very proud of their efforts. And the comment of the day…”That was more than 10 out of 10!”
