Everyone loves finger foods for camping. Gather ‘round the potluck table or patio and dig into these sweet and tangy bites. Serve with toothpicks plus napkins to catch the finger-lickin' drips.

2 bags, 16 ounces each, small meatballs, thawed
16-ounce can of tomato sauce
1 cup water
1 packet apricot gelatin dessert mix
½ cup sugar
½ teaspoon each cinnamon, ground cloves
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
10-ounce jar of apricot jam

Pile the meatballs into a slow cooker or other container for heating and serving. In a saucepan, whisk everything else together and bring to a boil. Remove from heat, stir to dissolve gel and sugar and pour over meatballs. Heat through.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA
Campfire Cola Ribs

Plan ½ pound of ribs per person. This recipe is ideal for campsites equipped with a large grill where you can make a crackling fire for searing and also provide coals for a Dutch oven placed off to the side of the grate.




4 to 5 pounds spare ribs

Garlic salt

1 ½ cups brown sugar

1 one-liter bottle of your favorite cola beverage

½ cup soy sauce




Get a good fire going and lightly spray a Dutch oven. Sprinkle ribs with garlic salt and sear them over the hot fire. This browns and seals them. Cut them into sections of three to five ribs and put them in the Dutch oven. Put the oven at the side of the fire where it can be surrounded by well-started coals but not licking flames.

Whisk together sugar, cola and soy sauce until sugar dissolves. Pour over the ribs to cover them. Cover the Dutch oven and continue to cook, replacing coals as needed with new coals, for 1 ½ to 3 hours until ribs are tender. Remove ribs and pour sauce into a pitcher to spoon over fire-baked potatoes. Serves 8 to 10. 

Cook’s note: Kitchen shears and household rubber gloves are useful for cutting up seared ribs. At this stage they can be very tough.

Mosquito repellant 

Citronella--60-70 drops
peppermint--30-40 drops
eucalyptus--20-30 drops
lemongrass--20-30 drops
1 Tablespoon of vinegar
water to fill rest of container.   Use a colored glass spray bottle size 4 ounce

I got my supplies from a health food store; total cost was around $28---sounds expensive, but I have enough to last the entire summer, and to make some for the kids too! After measuring out all those "drops"--the bottles have very little used.  It is easy to make, just turn the bottle upside down and count the drops!  Kay

Iowa Maid-Rite IMG_20140110_174549_735

**This recipe makes enough to serve 6-8 people.  I give quite a generous portion on large, freshly made bakery buns so we only get about 6 servings out of it, but if you used smaller buns you could serve quite a few more people**
3 lbs Ground Beef
1 small Onion, chopped
1 Beef Bouillon Cube
1 Chicken Bouillon Cube
1  1/2 cups Water
2 tbsp Brown Sugar
2 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 tbsp Soy Sauce
Large Hamburger Buns
Pickles
Mustard
Add the first nine ingredients to the crock pot.  Stir together to combine ingredients and break up the ground beef.
Cook on High for 4 hours. Stir occasionally to combine ingredients as they cook and to keep the beef from clumping together.  The smell that emerges from the crock pot each time you stir it is to die for!

Serve on hamburger buns…dont’ be shy, the messier it is the more authentic the sandwich!  Serve with condiments of your choice but remember the traditional condiments are pickles and mustard which I highly recommend.

Enjoy!!!

Ham and Cauliflower Casserole au Gratin
(Makes about 6 servings; recipe created by Kalyn with inspiration from Twice Baked Cauliflower.)


Ingredients:
at least 6 cups cauliflower flowerets, cut fairly small (1 large head cauliflower or 1 1/2 small heads)
1/2 tsp. salt (for water to cook cauliflower)
2 cups diced lean ham (use ham with less than 10% fat for South Beach Diet)
4 oz. reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt (I used my favorite fat-free Greek yogurt)
2 T finely-grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup thinly sliced green onions
fresh ground black pepper to taste
3/4 cup grated low-fat cheese (I used Four Cheese Mexican Blend)


Instructions:
Preheat oven to 350F/180C.  Fill a medium-sized pot half full with water, add 1/2 tsp. salt, and start to bring to a boil.  Cut up the cauliflower into small flowerets, discarding the leaves and core.  Put cauliflower pieces into the water and cook at a low boil until the cauliflower is starting to get soft, about 20 minutes.  (It doesn't need to be completely cooked, but it should be soft enough to mash.)


While cauliflower is cooking, cut the ham into very small cubes, trimming any visible fat, and slice green onions. Put cream cheese into a glass dish or measuring cup and soften it in the microwave for a few minutes.   (Or you can soften it on top of the pre-heating oven if you don't have a microwave.)  When cream cheese is soft stir in the Greek yogurt, Parmesan, and sliced green onions.


When cauliflower is cooked enough to start to soften, pour into a colander placed in the sink and let it drain well (at least 5 minutes.)  Put the drained cauliflower back into the pot you cooked it in and mash with a potato masher until it's partly mashed but still has quite a few chunks left.  Stir in the sauce mixture and combine well with the cauliflower; then gently mix in the diced ham.  Season to taste with fresh-ground black pepper.  (I didn't use salt because the ham and the Parmesan are both salty.)


Spray glass or crockery casserole dish with non-stick spray or olive oil.  (I used a round dish that was 8 inches across, with fairly high sides.)  Pour cauliflower mixture into the dish, spread out evenly, and sprinkle with the low-fat cheese.


Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned and all the mixture is hot throughout and starting to bubble.  Let sit 10 minutes for any liquid to be absorbed, then serve hot.


I am assuming that this freezes well, but I haven't tried freezing it because I didn't have any leftovers.
