Fresh Bannock Bread on a camping trip is so satisfying and it is extremely versatile, especially after eating hard crackers, bagels or pitas for a week.
For over a 1000 years, bannock, a simple bread made from the flour of a variety of grains, has filled the bellies of campers sitting around campfires. Its attraction is the simple base ingredients and its ease of cooking. A favorite way to make bannock is to cook it on a stick over a campfire.
