Roasting Potatoes in the Campfire

Here is how to make perfect roasted potatoes in the camp-fire:

  • Start the campfire and wait a while till you have some ashes and embers
  • Wash the potatoes and wrap them in aluminum foil
  • Drop them into the fire pit and bury them in ashes the best you can. You don't want your potatoes to be burning in the fire itself.
  • Wait 10-15 minutes
  • Take them out of the fire pit carefully and unwrap. Be carefull-they will be really hot.
  • Enjoy wth salt or butter.Perfect camping food.


This is obviously a job for grown-ups since it is very easy to get burned by the flames or to fall into the pit.
