Simmering Recipe Ideas for the Outdoors

Simmering is a very popular way of cooking in the outdoors as it is very tolerant of the fire fluctuations yet not impacting the flavor and doneness of the recipe being cooked.

Boiling is included in this section as although something is often 'brought to the boil' very few things are actually cooked in this method, rather the dish once boiling then being reduced to a simmer to actually cook.
