Marshmallow Strawberries: an easy and fast camping recipe




A reader has asked me a question about campfire desserts, which I think are the highlight of a meal when camping, and my children agree!    

The dessert in question is the marshmallow dipped strawberries recipe, toasted in the campfire.      Our reader wanted to know, "how to make them when camping"?

Glad you asked.

It doesn’t involve taking an electric mixer and gradually adding caster sugar to egg whites, because that is way too much work when camping.

It’s so simple.

I didn’t invent this recipe, but have seen it on numerous sites, including website Food52 where I think this recipe may have even originated (and where the photo above is from).

The ingredients you need are


  • strawberries which are washed and dry (wet strawberries might make it harder for the Fluff to stick)
  • Marshmallow Fluff*
*Found in Coles and Woolworths, in the cooking aisle or where the spreads are.  The jar looks like this below.

How to make?


  •  The method is dipping the strawberry in the Fluff and then on a skewer or stick, holding over the campfire until the marshmallow is browned.   Then eat quickly (but carefully, in case you’ve cooked it too long and its overly hot).
  • Marshmallow Fluff can be warmed ever so slightly to make it easier for dipping – warm in a bowl near campfire or over a stove just to make it easier for yourself.

You could of course make the meringue in the traditional fashion if you want, but that’s up to you, your camping style and time you have to do so.


What do you think of this recipe?    Let us know below if it’s something you would try!

10 clever camping coffee makers: so you never need to drink instant when outdoors!



10 camping coffee makers






A little luxury in my life is a good coffee.

The aroma of a freshly brewed coffee when you are camping, is a big highlight.   Some cold mornings, sitting around a campfire, with a cup in hand, is a great and very relaxing way to start your day.      Or if you have done a hike, then sitting back, admiring the view whilst you rest is also highly satisfying with a cuppa.

Life is too short to drink that over processed poor-excuse for a coffee  (AKA instant coffee such as International Roast or Nescafe).
      
Even when heading outdoors, there is no need to resort to drinking instant.     There is always an option  to get a good brew, wherever you are, however you camp.   Always.

Now, some of you might be saying “I love International Roast coffee”.    So taste is very personal.

But that sort of coffee, just isn’t coffee as far as I’m concerned.      I am not sure what it is, but it’s not a drink I want to wake up to.    And those flavored coffees like “Fat Free Butter Rum” instant coffee…what plant grows something like that?


But how to get that perfect blend when camping?      

How not to resort to dodgy flavored coffees?


Many campers have their preferred way of getting a good coffee.

We love the Aeropress (you can read our review of the Aeropress here, and find out how it works).   Why do we like the Aeropress? Because of its simplicity and the end result, which is a great coffee.   

But what else is out there, apart from the classic enamel kettles on the campfire?  Or the percolators and French Presses?       Well, you will be overwhelmed for choice in your quest to find a coffee maker that suits you.
  
From the basic to the fancy hi-tech, from the cheap to the pricey, there really is a coffee maker for everyone.

To give you some ideas, we have collated 10 innovative ways to get your coffee when you go camping.

We have only tried a couple of these, but if you have tried any of them, leave a comment at the bottom and give us your thoughts.


 

1.  JetBoil Flash Java Kit


jetboil coffee press


The JetBoil has been around for years, and there seems to be something new coming out frequently to complement or add to the JetBoil.  This was one of our first purchases for getting hot water for coffee on-the-go a few years ago, and it remains a reliable method (albeit a little bulky) way to get a coffee.

If you own a JetBoil but not the coffee press, you can purchase the coffee attachment separately and turn your JetBoil into a coffee maker (coffee ready in 2 minutes).

Or, if you are new to JetBoil products, they sell the entire kit including the coffee filter in one package (as pictured below).  Note, the coffee press only works with some Jetboils that are 104mm in diameter, so check before purchase.

The quality of the coffee, will depend on the sort of ground coffee you use and how long you let it steep.    When we use it, I do find that some coffee grinds do escape into the cup, which is not very pleasant.


Cost & Availability:    Varies greatly, so shop around and look for specials.      The entire package generally is around $100-109 in Australia and coffee filter as a separate purchase should retail around US$15, but here in Australia, they seem to charge $40 for it – try to buy from overseas with cheap shipping.


What sort of camper would this suit?:     Anyone who is not concerned about weight or size.   Suitable for day trip hiking, but if you are looking for a light load, then investigate other coffee options.




2.    Hario Dripper V60



hario dripper for camping


The beauty of this coffee maker for camping, is not only the simplicity but the price.

The dripper seems to fit every average coffee cup you own, and add a filter to it, put in the ground coffee, and slowly pour the water over the surface of the dripper, to allow a slow but even drip into your cup.

It comes in ceramic and plastic, and readily available in Australia.


See it in action here:





Cost & Availability:  $8.50 for a 1 cup dripper.   Filters are around $7 (for a pack of 100).    Ceramic versions are $21+        More details and costing can be found at HarioWorld

What sort of camper would this suit?:    Anyone looking for simplicity in their coffee making.    And budget conscious campers will appreciate the pricing.



3.   MSR Mugmate



msr mugmate camping coffee



This coffee maker will appeal to some because the beauty is in its size and lightweight design.   And of course, very simple too!

The full review of the MSR Mugmate will explain in more detail, but its just a fine mesh cup where you add your coffee and then add hot water to it.

Designed for 1 cup at a time and for those of  you who are looking for something that takes up no room, and doesn’t require filters (such as the Hario Dripper).   Plus it works well with tea leaves and is targeted to both coffee and tea lovers.


Cost & Availability:  This one seems harder to get in Australia because of ridiculous shipping policies imposed by some outdoor manufacturers which restrict any retailer of their brand, from sending goods to Australia.    If you want the goods, you need to buy from an Australian seller and pay the huge mark ups.      MSR (which is Cascade Designs) is one such company which has those restrictions.   Of course, the good news is that there is always a way around this, and purchasing from EBay or a UK seller allows you get the goods, and bypass this policy.      The cost for the MSR Mugmate is around $16.


What sort of camper would this suit?:   Solo campers, where you don’t need to do a brew for anyone else but yourself.    If weight and size is a consideration with your camping equipment, then you will appreciate this small and light coffee maker.




4.   Pour Over Brew Method


This method of placing a tool over the cup, adding coffee and then pouring over water is a popular one and the Hario listed above is very popular, but there are more that you can try such as the two below:

The Ready Set Joe -  This one reminds me of the Hario Dripper and has the same sort of coffee brewing method.   It's a cone style method again, and takes standard filters (not specifically designed like the Hario).

Made of plastic, it is light and would be a breeze to clean up!



camping coffee melitta

      
Cost & Availability:  In the US, they retail for under $5 which is a bargain.   Of course, bit trickier to get here, so EBay would be your best bet.  Haven’t seen any Australian stores selling them, unlike the Hario (which apparently gives a better quality brew, and its available here, so that one could be your best option).


Snow Peak Coffee Drip – this is one designed for those watching weight and space, as it folds down flat.  Snow Peak makes some wonderful products, so quality is generally always excellent.

Weighing in at around 113g, it may be too heavy for some backpackers who count every gram.

Requires filters and a bit of practice to ensure the filter is placed correctly from what I have read about this method.



snow peak coffee maker


Cost & Availability:  Have seen advertised in Australia for $35 from Drifta Camping, Snow Peak also makes great titanium accessories like mugs, frothers etc.



What sort of camper would these suit?:   Campers looking for low mess with their coffee makers, and simplicity.   No skill required to get this coffee.    



5.    GSI Mini Espresso Maker



gsi coffee maker

This is a very popular one, and a little more up market looking for your camping coffee.
 
Used on a stovetop, this espresso maker gives you one double shot, in 90 seconds.       It comes in a one cup or 4 cup design, so this larger capacity is useful if its not just you who needs that morning coffee, but the whole family.

Plus, another benefit of a larger design is the ability to get your second cup rapidly, and not have to wait for the machine to cool down, clean and refill and then reheat.


Cost & Availability:   This is available in Australia,     The 4 cup model will cost around $55-75 depending on where you purchase, so like anything, shop around.    I have seen it online at  Pinnacle Sports.

The one cup model is also available (try EBay) though there is not a huge price difference between the 1 cup and 4 cup models when purchasing from overseas.


What sort of camper would this suit?:   Campers who like their coffee with a bit more finesse than a pour over brew.       As it requires a stove to cook on, it would suit most campers who have that option.      Frequently used by hikers on overnight trips due to its durability as well.




6.    Handpresso Wild Hybrid




handpresso wild

Time to go seriously hi-tech looking with the Handpresso Wild Hybrid.

It uses either ground coffee or an ESE pod (note:  not to be confused with the capsules like Nespresso)  and works by pumping the handheld unit up to 16 bars of pressure – like you would use a bike pump.      Then add hot water to the reservoir and at the push of a button, the infusion of coffee into the water starts.   Push the button again, and the infusion is over.

No batteries or electricity required.
  
The result is meant to be a pretty good espresso.     I haven’t seen any of them in stores or heard much about them here in Australia, but from reports I have read, it seems like a great gadget to have in your camping box!

Intrigued?     Watch the video on how it works:

 




Cost & Availability:      This French company has only 1 supplier in Australia that I could find – Bombora.      The site doesn’t give the cost either, but does show a huge range of extras available to use with the Handpresso.    But on EBay, the Handpresso itself, seems to be around $120-150.

When looking online, don’t get confused with the 12v Handpresso for the car which is around $250!  


What sort of camper would this suit?:    Any camper who loves a good gadget (i.e.. us – so we may have to check this one out a lot more closely!!), plus a camper looking for a good espresso delivered via pressure.



7.    Nomad: Go Everywhere Espresso Machine






This machine was the result of a Kickstarter Project to get funds to start the production of this machine.    And it was so successful, its now available for purchase.

So how does it work?    The following is an excerpt from the the Kickstarter project for this machine, and explains it far better than I can.

The Nomad was inspired by the classic hand operated lever machines which remain the benchmark of quality espresso machines. We simplified and miniaturized the large, complex lever machines and created a portable device that’s very easy to use. The Nomad is the size of a 15 cm cube, weighs 1.1 kg, and requires no electricity. With very little effort the Nomad produces 9 bars of pressure and like the classic lever machines users have direct control over the water temperature, pressure, flow rate, and volume. Skilled coffee hobbyists and experts will enjoy playing with these variables. In addition, The Nomad is equipped with a proprietary True Crema Valve™ which compensates for coarser grounds and tamping variations. When used with the True Crema Valve anyone can make great espresso and coffee without having expensive grinding equipment and extensive training.




To see in action, watch this video below (and check out the crema on that coffee!!)





Cost & Availability:     To purchase this item, is via online sale only at this time.    You can do so here at Uniterra-Nomad.com.  Cost, including delivery is $245.      The aforementioned site can also provide you a great deal more detail on how this machine works.


What sort of camper would this suit?:     Campers who don’t want to leave home without guaranteed access to good coffee, delivered with a bit of style and innovation.

Plus campers who don’t need to worry about size, price and weight of their coffee machine, so campers with vehicles might find it a worthwhile investment!    Also might look good on your kitchen bench at home.



8.   Esbit Coffee Maker



esbit coffee maker


This coffee maker has been around for some time, and one of many products made by German company, Esbit.

This coffee maker needs solid fuel tablets which might prove limiting if you can’t find any in your local camping store.       The difference with this coffee maker and which sets it apart from the others already mentioned is that it is on its own little stove.

The process to get your brew is  fill up the coffee pot with water, put in the grounds holder and put your grounds on top, screw the lid on, place it on the stove and ignite the solid fuel tablet.    Put the coffee cup under the spout, and wait for the coffee to come out.

It’s like many espresso makers, but the built in stove is the difference.

Want to read a review of it?       Look at:    http://urbanadventureleague.blogspot.com.au/2012/09/review-revisited-esbit-coffee-maker.html

 
Cost & Availability:   Try online or  via EBay.     Haven’t seen it around very much otherwise though. Keep in mind that with some Australian online stores, they have to still ship it from overseas BEFORE you get it, so delivery time stretches out quite a bit.  It might be faster to purchase outside of Australia, and skip the delays.
 

What sort of camper would this suit?:    Most  campers, though once again, hikers might not like due to weight and size, especially if you are already bringing a stove along for your cooking, and then need this stove just for coffee.  
 



9.   Rok Espresso Machine

Now this one is for those who want to really impress everyone around the campsite.

If coffee making was about good looks, then this machine might be the one that wins that category.   I was sceptical that people would take this camping - but they do!  I've read stories of people using it in the outdoors.

This is from the makers of the Presso coffee maker (not covered in this story, but FYI it is a popular coffee maker), and is the new and updated version with a 10 year warranty.

The blurb on their website states:

Wrap your hands around the polished aluminum handles. Feel the experience. You drive the finely engineered gearing that lowers the piston to generate the pressure to extract the coffee oils to create the perfect espresso.

Wow.  It’s enough to make me want to get one, based on that statement alone.

The premise to the coffee is pretty much the same as a lot of the other coffee makers – add the ground coffee, tamp it down, add boiling water, and use the levers to build up pressure for extraction.      A very similar way to how we use the Aerobie Aeropress actually……but the Rok has  more of the “wow” factor in looks and price.

 This might be too good to take camping actually......See how simple it is here though:






Cost & Availability:   This is readily available in Australia.    Try Espresso Unplugged and retail price is $199.    Also available on EBay for similar pricing.


What sort of camper would this suit?:     Anyone who is truly serious about their coffee when outdoors.   And has the means to afford and carry it to the campsite!

  


10.  Mukka Express Stove Top Cappuccino Maker


mukka cappucino makers outdoors



How could we not include a cappuccino maker in the list?   Nearly didn’t because they are not easy to find for camping.

Yes, there are the separate gadgets that make the froth, but we wanted to find an all-in-one coffee maker.


The Mukka by Bialetti is a derivative of the famous Moka Pot (cheap and reliable way to get a coffee from your stovetop!).   The difference with the Mukka, is that you have a separate section for the milk and the pressure inside bubbles the milk, and empties into the cup.– serving 1 to 2 people.  

They come in the cute cow design or a more simple version – aluminum.

It seems to have received very mixed reviews since its inception (cleaning of numerous parts apparently is a bit of a drag) and consequently harder to find.


Cost & Availability:     Genovese Coffee, here in Australia sells for $120.   JetBlack Espresso has them priced at $139.    And Typical Kitchen Store had them for $137.   EBay sells them from $125 upwards.


What sort of camper would this suit?:   Cappuccino lovers, who need their frothy milk hit.    



As you can see, there is a huge range of ways to get your coffee when outdoors, and some of them aren’t cheap!       Like any camping gear, it will all come down to your personal preference. 


For the coffee connoisseurs out there, you can rest assured that going outdoors doesn’t mean you need to be deprived of your favourite brew.  There is bound to be one coffee maker in this list which will help your caffeine requirements in the wild.


What is your favourite way to get coffee when outdoors?  Leave a comment below.

10 questions to ask when buying a caravan – what you need to ask before you buy


 unnamed

We often write about camping in tents – because that is what we do.    But when it comes to the questions to ask before you buy a caravan, then we wouldn’t have a clue!     

Lucky for you all, we have a guest post by the people at Caravan Camper Megastore, who can provide you with 10 tips to ask BEFORE you buy a caravan.

At the end of this story, we also want to hear what questions you would (or have) asked before buying a caravan.


For many, the ultimate retirement dream is to purchase a trust-worthy caravan and venture off into the world. Whilst it’s a major lifestyle choice, buying your own caravan comes complete with the freedom to do what you want when you want, and enjoy years of well-earned relaxation and adventure.

It doesn’t mean to say though the choice is an easy one.

The process of searching for and subsequently purchasing the right new caravan for your needs and lifestyle can get a little overwhelming, and finding the right one tends to involve tackling a wealth of information first.

We check out 10 crucial questions to ask your new caravan salesman before making the big purchase to ensure you’re getting all the right material.

caravan2

 

1. How Much Will This Cost Me?


This seems like an obvious question – especially when you’re looking at the price tag attached to your new caravan of choice but look at it as a reality check. Caravan prices can start around $10,000 and work their way right up to the $100,000. You’ll need to find out the overall cost of the caravan, exactly what this price includes and whether the price is negotiable at all.


2. What Are ALL the Annual Running Costs and Can I See a Breakdown?


Buying a caravan is the easy bit, but it’s important you consider all the running costs that go with it. This all depends on the caravan you’re interested in buying but it’s best to always ask the salesman what additional costs are hidden in the initial purchase price.

Whilst the costs (both initial and running costs) of a caravan can be pricey, the upside is you’ll get as many holidays as you can squeeze in over the next 10+ years.


3. If there is an Urgent Need to Sell, Is there a ‘Buy Back Price’?


If you fall into any problems after you purchase your new caravan it can be a good idea to consider any re-sell options. Maybe there’s been a sudden change and you need to up-and-leave the country to move somewhere where you cannot keep your caravan or perhaps you need the money urgently – in these cases, second hand values can be a stab in the wallet for you.

However, asking for a contractual agreement in the case of illness or death can help to guarantee a buy back percentage based on the agreed value of the caravan. Some places can definitely offer this, and for those that don’t you may need to consider insurance for such circumstances.


4. How Long Has Your Company Been in the Business for?


Purchasing your caravan from a well-established company will ensure you’re going to be looked after. You want to look for a business that is reputable, trustworthy and where possible seek customer testimonials.


5. What is Your Caravanning Experience?


A salesman’s own personal caravanning experience is vital for the information you can receive about your caravan options. Adequate personal and professional experience will ensure that the sales rep can give you the right information to help match a caravan to your lifestyle, needs and wants.

Their product knowledge is important for what they’re selling so take note how much information they’re giving you. Some caravan dealers employ agency workers – professional sellers that may not have the same caravanning experience as someone who’s been working with the company or in the industry for a lengthy period of time. Don’t be afraid to suss out how long they’ve been working for and what their knowledge about the industry entails.


6. Does Your Manufacturer meet all the Standards and Design Rules?


Ensure the manufacturer meets all the country standards and design rules in the area. This will eliminate any problems registering your vehicle or applying for the right insurance claims in the event of an accident or problem.

Doing some research into this before you go and look at caravans will go a long way, but make sure you ask the sales rep for information showing that these standards are all met.


7. How Self-Sufficient Can I Be in This Caravan?


Self-sufficiency is a big thing for a caravan buyer because no doubt, you’ll be bush-camping for weeks on end in it. How well is your chosen caravan set up for what you’ll need? Does it have a three-way fridge? Does it match your electricity needs or will you need to run your car or a generator to keep them going?

It’s ideal to write out what features are essential for your caravan choice and your lifestyle and consider what’s vital and what’s desired. Whilst a toilet and shower can be luxurious, don’t forget these are things you’re going to be cleaning too. Most caravans will enable you to buy additional accessories in the future too, so for the desired list these can be things you add on at a later date.

Make sure though, you ask the salesman what can and can’t be added on.


8. How Much Does it Weigh and What Kind of Tow Vehicle Will I Need?


CARAVANtips


For many, towing the new caravan is a default choice so if this is the case for you – make sure it’s going to offer a comfortable travel. You’ll want to ask how much the caravan weights and make sure you have the right vehicle with towing capacity to assist.

For caravans, it’s usually 300kg for a single-axle caravan and 400kg for a tandem-axle caravan.

Off-road caravans tend to be much heavier than blacktop caravans, and additional items like water tanks will need to be included in the load capacity too. One of the biggest problems people run into is buying a caravan that doesn’t match the vehicle that’s going to be towing it.

Weight is an all-important factor and can be easily overlooked, so check the specifications and shop around if need be.


9. What Warranty is involved?


The warranty length on your chosen caravan is a good indicator of the manufacturer’s belief in the product. The longer the warranty, the better the product tends to be. Warranty length is important, as is after-sales care so be sure to ask when services and repairs can be performed.

Make sure you check on the location of where these repairs can be made too.


10. How Reliable is this Caravan Going to Be?


Chances are you’re purchasing a caravan because you want a good 10+ years of adventure, relaxation and freedom so finding something that is reliable is essential.

Check the caravan for a number of things before you make the purchase.

You want one that has a strong chassis and a thick, long drawbar.

Consider the tyres and how safe these will be for what you’re after. Check what kind of a hitch the caravan has too.



These are just 10 questions you might want to ask, but there might be a whole lot more.   If so, share the questions YOU think should be asked when buying a caravan -  leave a note in the comment section below.

A pop up camper inspired by the Opera House



Want to camp in style?


Then the Opera Mobile Suite Camper would appeal.      And you don't have to be a genius, to see where the inspiration for this camper came from.


Made by the Dutch company, Your Suite in Nature (YSIN) it's a pretty and expensive looking vehicle which will definitely make you stand out from the crowd. 


Whilst this pop up camper first came onto the market a number of years ago, its design has stood the test of time.


It's features include:


  • 2 electrically adjustable beds
  • teak flooring
  • boiler supplying hot water to the kitchen
  • outdoor shower
  • hot air heating
  • ceramic toilet
  • top loading fridge
  • LED lighting



Now for the bad news......apparently, production on this has stopped for economic reasons.  

So you can put your wallet away, and just enjoy looking at it from afar.

Going to the toilet when camping: it’s not that scary


camping toilet



How to go to the toilet when camping seems to be the biggest fear and obstacle about camping, and why people don’t go. 
   
When you ask someone why they don’t like to camp, the toileting problem is the most frequent one I hear.  

I was recently reading a camping story over at another blog and in the comments section, this fear was expressed by so many women, and was one of the key reasons not to head outdoors.

If you are new to camping, and a little worried about it, then fair enough - because that was me.    I was a 5 star hotel sort of person, but without the income to actually go to 5 star hotels!

I too, wasn’t a fan of this idea of not having a toilet nearby when my husband said "we need to go camping".

Starting off camping, I had to have a toilet, and we purchased a Porta Pottie for the girls in the family on my insistence.   In those days,  I couldn’t possibly imagine not having a toilet!     And yes, it has been a godsend some days with a younger child who always wants to go.     It also alleviated some stress, knowing that in the middle of the night, there were options that didn’t involve running to a distant toilet (or no toilet at all).     
As time has gone on, the need to take it on trips has lessened.

Why? 

Because as our children got older, they became more adept at telling us when they needed to go – in advance – and also for the girls, better at going behind a bush! 
    
Plus, having had to use good drop toilets, makes another worry disappear!    Not all drop toilets are vile and smelly.     Some are better than flushing ones, and once you don’t think about it too much (and how it all works),  a drop toilet becomes part of many campers everyday experience.

It has been a slow progression to get to this point.    I wasn't an automatic outdoorsy camper after one trip.


But don’t think you can’t go camping because of the lack of a toilet right next to you.  Going to the toilet is only a small part of your getaway from suburbia.        


You don't need to buy a fancy portable loo, especially if camping is only an occasional outing.    But if you want to,  they do give you some peace of mind (but remember, someone has to empty it).

There are plenty of cheaper options out there – its about finding what works for you.

When we have longer than 1 night stay camping trips, we frequently look at the camping facilities available where we are headed.   And if there is a toilet is one of the main things we investigate.        If not, we then have to think about logistics and if we need to pack the Pottie, or consider the old fashioned option – taking a shovel.

Small camping steps 

 

If you insist on always having a flush toilet nearby, then you can always start off with small camping steps – try a caravan park (ideally not in peak times).   Some caravan parks have specific bush camping areas, but with the mod cons nearby.  Set up your camp as close as you want to the toilet, so its not a long dash to it.      Get used to the idea of leaving one form of accommodation (tent/caravan/trailer) to do your business in another building!
   
Heading outdoors has many rewards; physical, emotional and mental.      
      
Don’t give up on the idea because of a toilet.


If you want to comment on why you do (or don't camp), then we would love to hear from you.
