our experience making boy scouts dutch oven peach cobbler recipe

In the community where I live, scouts are extremely active and contribute tons to our community.

Getting outside with our kids is a priority for our family. Not only is it great for their health, but it is also great for their dispositions – and it does amazing things for our family connections.

When you get together with your family and friends this Thanksgiving, don’t let the fun stop at the dining table. Let’s be honest, any food you eat outside always tastes better. This Boy Scout Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler is no different. Cooked over hot coals, it is the perfect accompaniment to a day full of scouting adventure – or a day of geocaching, which is what my kids love to do when we go camping.

We found this recipe for cobbler from a local scout troop in our community. We have lots of festivals and fairs and it is common for the Boy Scouts to be serving peach cobbler as a fundraiser.

When my husband and I first tasted it, I was waddling around 8 months pregnant with my second child at a local fair and we were both shocked how good it was. So shocked in fact that I made my husband get back in line to get a serving for himself because I decided the bowl of cobbler we were going to share was all mine.

Later we found out how easy the recipe was and it has been on our family tradition list ever since.

    I’ve made this several times only without the cinnamon. I have also tried different fruits blueberries are my new favorite plus I dump in a 16 oz. Bottle of sprite or 7-up on top of the as the final ingredient. I’ll be doing this for our family reunion next weekend. Not sure why the rotation of the lid and Dutch oven because I think the heat is pretty even. Growing up with scouting and cooking outside with Dutch ovens has been a fun part of my life. You can cook anything in them. Thanks for your article
