I spent this past weekend camping in Straits State Park, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (and pretty dern close to Canada). Here’s a little map for the visual.
I’ll post some photos from our time on Mackinac Island next week, but in the meantime, I wanted to share a new campfire recipe. It’s time to get on the boat. The banana boat.
I’m a true-blue s’mores fan. But I found a recipe for these campfire bananas on Pinterest (that temptress) and decided to give ‘em a go. Success! They’re a cinch to make, and now I’ve got a new campfire staple.
- Banana per person
- Chocolate chips
- Mini marshmallows
- Graham crackers
1. Slice a banana vertically, making an incision about half-an-inch thick.
2. Stuff the sliced-open banana with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows. Crumble a graham cracker on top.
3. Fold a piece of foil like a taco and place the stuffed banana inside. Crimp the top so that ashes from the fire don’t get in your ‘naner.
4. Place atop the campfire grill for about 10 minutes, until the chocolate is melted and the banana is mushy. Or, you can place directly into the fire for about the same time. Just monitor your banana, because cooking times will vary based on how hot your fire is.
5. Allow to cool a bit and enjoy with a fork!
