I absolutely love camping. But do you know what I love most about camping? Why, the campfire food, of course! You have your pie iron recipes, your tin foil meal recipes, and of course, s'mores. Here is one of the tin foil meal variety, the orange peel muffin.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
- Oranges (of course!)
- "Just add water" muffin mix (But you can bring a pre-made recipe as well! I don't like to cart around extra stuff, so I just use the mix.)
- Tin foil
- Spray cooking oil
- (Not shown) Bowl
- A grate or something to put the oranges on over the campfire.
- A campfire!
Step 2: Cut the Oranges
This is pretty self explanatory. Try to cut your oranges right down the middle. Make sure the brown place where the stm one was is facing upward when you cut.
Step 3: Scoop Out the Guts
Take your spoon and scoop all of the orange guts out. There is a method to it. Bring your spoon all the way around the edge to loosen the orange. keep going around deeper and deeper. Once you are right near the bottom, use the spoon as a lever and pry the orange guts out. 5 points if you get them all out in one piece!
Step 4: Fill Peel With Mix
If you have the just add water mix, put it into a bowl and, well, just add water! If you brought a homemade mix with you, skip that part. Pour the mix into the orange peel until it is a centimeter (.4 inches) from the top.
Step 5: Wrap the Orange
Tear off a piece of tin foil around 20 cm (8 in) long. Spray it evenly with your cooking spray. Place the tin foil on top of the orange and wrap it up. Place it on the grate on the campfire. with a fork, poke a few little hole on the top of the foil.
Step 6: Wait..... and Finish!
Wait until some muffin mix comes out of the top of the holes. When that is cooked (or when you stick a toothpick in and it comes out dry) You are done! Enjoy the muffin-y, slightly citrus-y, campfire-y taste of your muffins!
