How hard is it to cook on a wood stove?
Have you ever cooked on a campfire? Hard to do isn’t? Well it is for most of us. You have to keep an eye on everything. You need to know how to judge when the pan is hot enough, when the items are fully cooked, & keeping the ashes out of your food. I am an Eagle Scout so I have eaten my fair share of ash.
While visiting my Amish friends, I have witnessed Amish actually cooking on these stoves. I remember one time while picking up an order of belts from Eli. He stated that his mom was cooking apple pies. Yum Yum! If you are like me, I love food. Eli had some work still to do so I had to wait. Unfortunately, I stepped outside to fall in to a smell of scrumptious apple pie. My stomach started to talk to me.
Later she came down to the shop with a pan wrapped in a dish towel. I had a smile on my face anticipating the apple goodness. She came through the door saying she had a treat. The pan was unwrapped to show bread and butter. It was all homemade but my stomach was disappointed. She explained that the fire went out during the cooking process. It became a doughy, gooey mess. Oops.
After getting my order, I was off to drive home. I could not get the Amish apple pie out of my mind. Following a brief stop, I was on my way. Ok, I got one of those delicious apple pie pockets at a famous fast food place. Let’s just say it was not an Amish apple pie & my stomach was still disappointed.
