A Little Bit of Me

Jottings and Writing, miscellanous misgivings

Two Sailing recipes

Camp Oven Bread

4C flour ( you can mix different flours)

2T butter

2t yeast

2T honey

½C blood heat water


Mix flour and butter and salt and mix yeast honey and water.  when yeast bubbles add to flour mixture.  Knead 10 minutes.  Then place in greased Dufeau.  Row ashore.  Light fire on beach and when fire is going well lay a fry pan or sheet of tin and onto this throw cockles, mussels, oysters.  When they open eat hot.  (You could put garlic butter onto these but eating hot is important – cold they lose their flavour).  When fire is dying and bread has proven (½ – 1hr) place hot embers around and on top of Dufeau and bale for approx 40min.  Eat with butter, jam, cheese etc.

Clam and Tomato Soup

3 doz Kidney Fern cockles

1 onion

4 diced potatoes

2 diced carrots

6 cloves of garlic

pkt Maggi Ham and Tomato Soup/ Some sort of pasta



Lemon juice


Saute potato, carrot, and onion and garlic in butter and olive oil until soft.  Add soup mix/pasta and 2-3 cups of water and lemon juice (white wine could also be substituted if available).  In another pot boil 1-2 pints of water and when boiling drop cockles in until they pop open.  Once open immediately remove meat and juices and preserve with a little paprika and pepper and lemon juice if desired.

Three minutes before serving add cockles to soup mixture.
