My Ghillie cooking set finally arrived in the post so I packed up the bicycle trailer and decided to spend the day up the lottie. The sun was shining brightly and it was surprisingly very warm, in fact it was so warm it was even t-shirt weather! (I have been living in 5 layers all winter so this was great!) The cooking set comes complete with a saucepan, frying pan, handle grip, pot support and a grill for the fire pit, so it’s perfect for cooking lunch for one person (or could simply be used to serve portions one at a time!)
I’m still getting used to this fire malarky and learning which wood is best and that newspaper is a necessity to get it going! Anyway the great thing about the ghillie kettle is that you can have the water boiling for your cup of tea whilst cooking on the top, and then once the kettle is boiled you can use the embers or small fire to finish cooking. It was however, my first time cooking on the kettle so I decided to cook a simple and easy pancake as a belated pancake day celebration 🙂
The frying pan is tiny but it did just the job and the pancake was delicious! After spending all afternoon digging my root bed it was a perfect snack and I washed it down with a nice hot cup of tea.
I will be planting my early International Kidney potatoes tomorrow as we are forecast for a week of sun. Looks like Spring has arrived and boy aren’t we ready for it!
