Last year my youngest asked at the last minute if he could come on a camp with me, initially l was against it as l had lots planned but ultimately decided that a slightly more glampy agenda would mean he got a few days of fresh air.
One of the showpiece things we did were some twice-cooked chips in a Dutch oven, the results can be seen above. I used to think it was a pretentious thing to make chips sound better on a menu but it is actually a viable cooking method, and here's how you do it over a fire and indeed at home.
Freshly prepare your chips just as you need them which will prevent them going brown. I personally prefer a nice chunky chip that will withstand the rigours of the cooking procedures.
You need to half fill a Dutch oven with Sunflower oil (or similar) and then bank up some established embers about a quarter of the way up the side of the Dutchie.
