Teach a friend's pre-teen with an interest in camp cooking how to use a Dutch oven.
About an hour, including bake time, but only 20 minutes or so for prep and cleanup.
Our friends have a daughter who has expressed an interest in cooking, particularly when they're in camp. My parents mastered a peach cobbler cooked anywhere a Dutch oven, some fire and the makings can be gathered in one place. We combined these for a winning combination.
Absolutely! The girls (ours and theirs) had a nice time working together on the project, measuring, mixing, licking the bowl clean, playing while they waited for the unwatched pot, sniffing to determine whether the baking was finished, tasting to test the end product. And everyone came away with new or improved life skills.
