#18 "Hey Rod.....

“Hey Rod.......Short of waiting for hours for the dough to rise and the bread to cook, what can I make for a quick lunch sandwich? Keep in mind that I'm not a baker, butcher or candlestick maker.”


“You have a couple of really good options, first you can make some biscuits with a couple cups flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, (if you don't have baking powder you can substitute a teaspoon of lemon juice plus a ¼ teaspoon baking soda to make 1 teaspoon of baking powder) ½ teaspoon salt, ½ cup butter and ¾ cup water. Mix the dry ingredients then cut the butter into small cubes and add with water. Mixture should be like a crumble. Make into about 18 balls and flatten, bake at 400F until golden brown (10 – 12 min). Or you could make Bannock! Almost the same as the biscuits except instead of the ½ cup of butter, you add 1 tablespoon of either olive or vegetable oil. When you mix this, it will become a little sticky. You cut off a piece and flatten it in your hand, about ¾” thick and then fry it in some hot oil in a frying pan, flipping it until golden brown on both sides and cooked in the middle. Enjoy with honey or jam while it is still hot enough to chew. With the bannock, you can premix this and put it in a medium zip lock freezer bag and take it with you camping or hiking. You can twist it on a stick and cook it by a fire or fry it on a hot rock, but don't forget the Honey! I think I need a snack, this is really good stuff.”
