As we've seen throughout this website and others, Altoids tins can be used for a multitude of things. Some examples are survival and fire starter kits. Heck, I pack one of, if not both, every time I load my pack. Be that as it may, I have never seen an Altoids tin used like this. If you have ever been camping or hiking in remote mountain ranges or other extreme conditions, you are more than likely to have a few staples from the kitchen in your pack. Where as flour may be a stretch, who knows, I have heard of stranger things taken on trips! (Like an Altoids tin full of God knows what!) If you do in fact happen to have flour in your pack, (and an Altoids kit of some kind), while in the wild, or your just bored at your house/dorm room and feel like a home made biscuit that rivals your grandmothers, lets carry on to the next step.
Step 1: Ingredients (What You Will Need)
Again, you probably won't have all of this with you if your camping, but using only water and flour and mixing everything together in the Altoids tin will work just fine. For the sake of this Instructable, I will be using the full line-up of ingredients.
*Self Rising Flour (appx 1/2 cup per serving)
*Water (appx 1 - 1.5 oz per serving; go by consistency)
*Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( just a drizzle)
*Salt (i just use a dash to flavor since the flour already has some in it)
*An Altoids tin, clean of decoration (The best way I have found to do this is to take a wire brush and just go to town. It takes about two minutes to get the entire tin clean.
*A mixing bowl and a mixing utensil. I like to use a small bowl and a whisk. (If your in the woods, the Altoids tin and a clean stick will work just fine.)
