    BANNOCK! This brings back the memories from camp... Pizza bannock sammiches, made with week old cheese, a purplish meat appropriatly called "Chams", and minnows, all made in a used sardine can. I miss camp.

    Ah, fantastic - could do with something like that right now. I'm interested in the fat-side of this. Would it be traditionally made with left-over fats, like 'dripping'? L
