How I Spent My Summer Vacation
I had fun baking bread while camping at the base of the Tetons in Wyoming this summer. Combining two great loves had me in bread/nature nirvana for awhile. This was our 6th time to the Tetons and from there it’s a quick spin up to Yellowstone. It’s such a magnificent resource that we all own. I’ve included a couple of brief wildlife and scenery snippets in the videos.
Those snippets may be the only thing brief about the videos. I could have (probably should have) edited out more than I did, but I’d like to think there’s something instructional in most of what you’ll watch. My first bread baking attempt had a surprisingly happy ending given how things were looking along the way. The second try a few days later wasn’t perfection either, but whether it was the “everything tastes better when you’re camping” effect or not, I thought it was one of the best tasting and most satisfying breads I’d ever made.
If nothing else, I hope these videos encourage those new to bread baking. Near winging it is all you need sometimes.
Viewers often ask about some of the tools and resources used or referenced in my videos, so I’ve added a resource box below.
Update: This page wasn’t up for more than a few hours before experienced camp cooker, Alfonso, added these great campfire bread baking tips.
