Dutch Oven Cooking

Anything that can be fried, stewed, boiled, baked, steamed or poached can be cooked in a Dutch oven. That includes bread, rolls, pies, pizza, roasts and meatloaf. No wonder Dutch ovens have long been a favorite of camp cooks.

Learn how to select, care for, use and stay safe around a Dutch oven. Cook up a variety of tasty foods outdoors, including foods you cook on the lid.

Dutch Oven Cooking Unit 2 challenges cooks to explore one-dish meals, breakfasts and cooking on the lid. In addition, youth will get to cook with two or more Dutch ovens at the same time.

Some counties have more requirements. Contact your 4-H leader or UI Extension county office to check.
