- LOL, Tom. I'll have you know that at this precise moment in Canandaigua it is 84 degrees and all the snow is gone! Who knows, though. Yesterday it was in the 30's!

Thanks for the reply. The Finger Lakes is a very nice place to
camp. ItÕs been years since I have camped there. I said in my
last post, that I lived in Buffalo, NY. Not really true, I live in
Kenmore, NY, just a little north of Buffalo and a few miles west of
Williamsville. I always say Buffalo because most people would
not know where Kenmore, NY is.
Many years ago on a long holiday camp out, we use to do ÒPot
We would did a hole in the ground about twice the size of the DO
and start a fire in the hole, letting it burn for a couple of hours.
after dinner we would get the beans ready. Using a couple of 1
Lb bags of dry beans, which were let soak over night, were
parboiled the beans and put in my DO with salt and pepper to
taste and cut up salt pork along with water to just cover beans.
The DO was then lowered in to the hole on to the hot coals and
covered with the dirt. We then built our campfire on top of the
hold and sat around the campfire wondering what the beans
were going to look like the next day. The next day about 5 pm, we
open the hole and removed the DO and beans. Brushing the
cover off on the Do, the pot was placed on the picnic table with
everyone lookinÕ on. The cover was removed and what a sight.
The beans were a nice golden brown on top and great tasting.
The hungry campers finished in a beans in a hurry. They are the
best tasting beans I ever had.
If you like to read a good book on DO cooking, I recommend
C. W. Welch (Cee DubÕs) Ò(Dutch Oven and Other Camp
CookinÕ)Ó I got mine from Amazon dot com. It has many great
stories and recipes in it. (many Laughs)
I just ordered Cee DubÕs two other books.
Hope the snow is gone by the time you get to the Finger Lakes in
