Kin’che (Cracked Wheat with Eggs)

Source: The Recipe of Love
Date tried: July 9, 2012
Yield: 4 servings
Time needed: 20 to 40 minutes, depending on choice of grain

Although this is listed in the Breakfast section of The Recipe of Love, it is also suitable as a side dish with any meal.

I have altered the instructions in two ways. First I reconciled the instructions with the list of ingredients. Although the list of ingredients calls for only ½ cup of spiced butter, the instructions called for 2 full cups.

Also, in my experience cracked wheat ordinarily takes only 15-20 minutes to absorb the water over a simmer heat. I am sure if I left the saucepan on a boil for 35-45 minutes as the original printed instructions dictate, I would be setting off smoke alarms big time as the wheat burned black in a dried-out pot.  Also a covered pot and a lower heat saves energy and keeps the kitchen cooler. So I have revised those instructions to match my actual practice.

Pancake, Waffle or Camping Bread Mix

Source: Recipes for a Small Planet
Date tried: July 12, 2013
Yield: 6 ½ cups
Time needed: less than 10 minutes

Baking mixes are always handy.  Here is a high-protein mix for using at home or while camping whether you want pancakes, waffles or bread.

Pancakes from RSP mixPancake, Waffle or Camping Bread Mix
4 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup soy flour
2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. salt
½ cup non-instant dry milk (or 2/3 cup instant dry milk)

Stir these ingredients together and store in a tightly-covered jar or can.  Pack into a plastic bag for camping.

To use, take 1½ cups of this mix and add:
1-2 eggs (or powdered eggs)
2 Tbsp. oil
2 Tbsp. honey (or sugar)
Water or milk to bring batter to desired consistency.

Water and powdered eggs alone will produce a good campfire bread.
Use the oil and honey as well for pancakes or waffles.  A thicker batter makes good pancakes, a thinner batter is best for waffles.
