    A real nice thing to do with those dutch ovens is pour two 15 oz. cans of peaches, one yellow cake mix, 2 sticks of butter, 1/2 cup brown sugar and some cinnamon together (don’t stir.). Let it cook with the coals below and above the oven for about 30 to 40 minutes… Then go ahead and die, because you’ve just been to Heaven! :-)

    For those that live near the coast…

    Katadyn Survivor Desalinator

    The Katadyn Survivor is the ONLY manual water desalinator and purifier in the world. It pumps 35 gallons of fresh water from ANY water source. Definitely beats the alternative of distilling water,which takes days to produce 10 gallons.

    @shaolinadr Obviously cast iron is more for a base camp type setup than for bugging out on foot. Hard to bake bread in a canteen cup though. :)

    @kooxoh bears will generally keep away from a campfire with people around it…

    @SurvivalReport
    You were nice enough to share with me how you cook in the bush so I thought id do the same. Also I am thinking long term I just dont want heavy gear slowing me down.

    @shaolinadr As I’ve covered once before, cast iron is hardly “bug out on foot” cooking materials. Ever cooked bread in a canteen cup? This is long term survival, base camp type cooking, not patrol/bug out type cooking.

    one thing i like to do when camping, mostly when expecting a cold night. Par boil (half boil) some potatoes, cut about a dozen slits halfway though the potato to open it up, put some flavoured butter (we just add some french onion soup mix to butter) and wrap it all up in foil, roasted on the coals. If you do it just right, you got some real tasty baked potatoes.
    real good to snack on while drinking round your campfire.

    soon, when our economys crash, we will need these skills. collect cast iron if you can for cooking, have plenty of drinking water on hand.

    Ok I just wanna say that I take a light pan or a cake pan (gunna get a mess kit soon) not a duch oven so that I can keep it in my bugout kit so I can carry my stuff in foot. Also as my pan it lighter I can easily cook on flames not coals which takes less fuel and so I dont need an axe as sticks are fine just got to split them with my knife. I hope this has been food 4 thought lol

    @ratutevita, to understand cooking you need to know thermodynamics.

    Cooking is the transference of heat into a mass.

    Cooling is the removal of heat from a mass.

    Cast iron conducts heat and it will hold the cold if you put it in ice, and cover it with ice. Pour the ice cream mix in the cold Dutch oven and stir with a wood spoon every 20 minutes.
    Pour salt on the ice to achieve colder temperatures. Enjoy.

    @disclosurenow9 Great point! I use an RV “food grade” hose and tell all those who buy from me the same….I forgot to mention it on my video…I will have to make an annotation. Thank you for the heads up!

    I hope you aren’t using that garden hose to fill your barrels. You want to use a food grade hose. Lead & other nasties in garden grade hose.Good videos.Thanks.

    Just go to Home Depot, Wall Mart, Camping World or any other place that sells “Drinking Water” hoses. They are white with a blue line (you’ll never confuse which hose is which).

    They are not terribly expensive and do not promote bacteria growth. A regular hose doesn’t cause cancer, it can just become a petri dish!

    Hi Kory, I really enjoy your videos! On the subject of water hoses to fill your barrels, I understand that a regular water hose has some cancer-causing materials in it. One web site sells what they refer to as a drinking water safe hose. I don’t know if I can mention the name of the site on here, so please send me a pm is you’re interested.
