Here are the 15 recipes that were prepared at the Dutch Oven workshop:

<span style="font-size:14pt;line-height:100%">Main Dishes </span>

Arroz con Pollo
3 lbs chicken thighs, bone-in
1 green bell pepper & 1 yellow onion
3 cloves garlic
1 large or 2 medium sized tomatoes
15-20 saffron threads (may need more if using Mexican Saffron)
3 cups chicken stock
3 tbls olive oil
2 cups long-grain white rice
1 bay leaf + salt, ground black pepper, & red pepper flakes
1 cup green peas, frozen

Finely chop seeded bell pepper, onion, and garlic, Peel and finely chop the tomato. Crumble the saffron threads into 1/2 cup of the stock, warmed.

In the D O, which has been heated to medium heat (8-10 coals), warm the olive oil. Working in batches if necessary, brown the chicken pieces well on all sides, about 10 minutes. Using tongs, remove from the pot and set aside.

Add the onion, bell pepper, and garlic to the DO and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, mixing well, then add the rice, coating it well with the oil. Pour in the chicken stock and the saffron and its soaking water, and add the bay leaf, salt, and black and red peppers. Add several additional coals under the DO until water starts to boil. Cover and transfer most of the coals to the lid, and cook until the rice is tender and the chicken pieces are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

Uncover, and add the peas evenly over the top, and recover. Continue to cook until peas are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove the coals from the DO and let rest, covered, for 10 minutes.

Songdog’s Old Fashioned Sourdough Bread Pudding
7 cups stale Sourdough bread cubes, cut into 1" pieces
6 cups milk (or 3 cups milk plus 3 cups cream)
6 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 Tbl butter
3/4 cup raisins
3 tsp. vanilla
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
whipped cream for topping

Spread butter around bottom of Dutch oven. Cut bread into 1" cubes and put into 12 inch Dutch oven. In a separate bowl mix eggs, cinnamon, vanilla, sugar and milk. Pour over bread cubes. Save raisins until later. Place 6-7 coals under the Dutch oven and a solid ring of coals on outer edge of lid (18-20 coals)
Check in 15 minutes. Liquid should be visible and it should be simmering. Add raisins. Push raisins down into mixture a little but don't stir. Check again in 30 minutes. The top should have some crust and a little browning. If there is none, add some more heat to top. If a heavy crusting or browning, reduce heat. Pudding should be done at about 45 minutes, when it has thickened and top is evenly browned. Sprinkle about 1 Tbl. mixture of cinnamon and sugar on top. Remove from heat. Let sit for a few minutes before serving. Good with whipped topping. Serves 12-15 people.

Every pioneer family had traditional recipes that were handed down from generation to generation. This bread pudding is just that kind of recipe. It satisfied Mom’s thrifty nature, using up all her leftover hard bread, and her extra eggs and cream. It also satisfied every child’s sweet tooth, be he big and small.
