    We’ve made this recipe a couple of times now, it’s fed up to 10 hungry campers (but also two campers, for two nights) in our can cooker junior. After a long day outside hiking and adventuring it’s lovely to come back, relax and sit by the fire while cooking a tasty meal with minimal effort! Definitely recommend!!
