Anglo Saxon Damper Bread…

Larches put all their good practise to work today, and successfully worked together to make a fire and cook on it.  Firstly they collected all the different  sticks they needed, thinking carefully about grading them in order of thickness.  Then they remembered and talked about the 3 elements that make a successful fire-heat, oxygen and fuel. The children built the fire, lit it, then took turns to add to it until it was hot enough to cook on.

Whilst the logs burnt down a little, we looked  at the damper bread instructions. Then everyone squashed up their flour, salt, sugar and water in a small zip-lock bag to make a bread dough…

The dough was carefully wrapped around the sticks we had prepared and cleaned last week, and the sticks were then placed over the hot embers  to cook. We needed to make sure we twistied the stick round to cook the dough evenly and watched as the dough changed colour and cooked through. We were very pleased with the results…the bread tasted lovely!
