Actually in my opinion it tastes horrible, but the scouts enjoy doing it and even enjoy eating them.
- A well built fire.
Don't get too hung up about not being able to find oranges in the wild in Britain, but it's about getting kids to think outside the box.
Step 1: Preparing the Orange
The most difficult bit of the procedure is to remove the contents of the orange (eat it, it's tasty and healthy btw)
At the end, the cap should still sit on the top of the orange.
Step 2: Line it with bacon
Step 4: Fixing the Lid
It's a good idea to soak the toothpicks because otherwise they'll just burn away.
Step 5: Stick it on the fire
Embers have very little or absolutely no flame but glow red hot especially when blown on. If you're used to using BBQ's, that's what we're talking about. Flames are much less hotter & just blacken the food with soot.
Embers is what we want. When the egg swells and pushes the lid up, the food is cooked.
Step 6: Edible
Shame it all tastes faintly of orange really, but edible.
