Fish in the Fireplace

Ingredients:
Fish (your choice)
fresh herbs
olive oil
sliced lemon
salt and pepper

Directions:
Stuff a whole fish with lemon and fresh herbs of your choice; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet on hot embers; add some olive oil and the fish. The fish can also be coated with olive oil and placed directly on a raised, heated grill over embers. Cook until crispy on the outside and flakey inside; cooking time will vary.
Fireplace Sausage and Potatoes
Ingredients:
3 baking potatoes, cut into small chunks
1/4 to 1/2 cup olive oil
1/8 cup finely chopped onions
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
precooked sausages
ketchup and mustard (optional)

Directions:
In a cast iron pot, mix together potatoes, olive oil, onions, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Place pot on embers and stir often. Cook about 15-20 minutes, until potatoes pierce easily with fork. Roast sausages on skewers over flames, turning until browned (about five minutes). Serve together with condiments, if desired.

How about salt & pepper to the inside of your fish, wrapping in tinfoil and bake right on the coals. Good camping fare

This is a great site; an excellent source for learning the rules and technique of successful gardening. This is wonderful to inspire our youths and encourage them to the powerful world of Agriculture.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
