|Look! Our 50c hotplates in operation!|
I halved my usual recipe and put the mixture into a pudding bowl with lid - and then into our larger camp oven. It barely fit into the provided fireplace though and we weren't able to completely cover it with coals - that fact combined with the very cold overnight temperatures meant the rice was still uncooked in the morning. I was somewhat disappointed but decided to make another attempt, using the thermal cooker.
As the rice was already in the pudding bowl, I tried the method of thermal-cooking puddings. There didn't seem much action by lunchtime, though I may have been too impatient. In any case, I consulted my selection of printed thermal-cooker recipes and used the recommended method of cooking the creamed rice in the top pot. It worked brilliantly, so Nick and I enjoyed it for dessert with tinned peaches, after our excellent camp oven pizzas! (Definitely a case of third time lucky)!
