A Long-held Dream

Tripod 1 It has long been a dream of mine to be able to have a camp-fire with a proper tripod (the kind I used to see in pictures of Gypsy encampments in my childhood storybooks). This one was imported from America where outdoor camping and cooking is a lot more widespread and popular. The cast iron cooking pot (which can also be used to bake cakes by playing hot embers on the lid) is also from America. I would ideally prefer a plump little black Welsh cauldroun, but I suppose that one has to move with the times – but that really would be the realisation of a dream for me and after all, Cae Non is the sort of place where dreams really do come true. If anyone knows where I can purchase a traditionally-shaped cauldroun which can actually be used for cooking in, please let me know in the comment box below!

Tripod 2

The contents of our first pan to be heated was Meadowsweet from which Dafydd attempted to make beer. I cannot say that it was an entirely sucessful experiment, but it was certainly good fun and interesting.
