Safety is very important when it comes to cooking with the children initially. Naturally kids are very curious about cooking and it is quite irresistible for them when you have a campfire cooking.For camping and outdoor cooking nothing can be better than the Dutch oven so you should think about encouraging the task of cooking to the kids along their security.
It is up to you that what you would like to cook the small camp stoves or burn fire woods. When you are out in the woods you can have great food with the Dutch ovens and the whole experience is great fun.When specific tasks are given then children really love it. Let the kids keep a track of the time the food is cooking, arrange the blocks of coal or help to dig a hole. This will help the children to understand that how important it is to keep away from the flame while the cooking is going on.
There are usually three ways when you decide to cook outdoors. The Dutch oven can be placed directly on the fire or get it buried in the coals or hang the pot over the fire. As only some food preparation requires high heat so it is suggested not to use too many briquettes right away. You have to know one thing that if you apply too much heat then the food which you are preparing will be spoiled so try going easily and slowly.
The Outdoor, or "campstyle" Dutch ovens are suited to sit on three legs. The Dutch ovens are equipped with great lids which do not allow the ash to get in or you have the choice to use the “kitchen” style which has all the features of the Campstyle except the three legs. When you place the Dutch oven directly on the charcoal then see that it is balanced perfectly so that the cooking does not get spoiled by tipping over. Children can learn about cooking in a great way but be cautious of never leaving them alone. It is very convenient to cook the steamed vegetables, desserts and breads on the Dutch oven and at times you can also try your favorite dump cakes and cobblers.
