      Hi Don,

      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
      Hole BeansÓ.
      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
      July.
