But Handsome Hubby has one, and he has cooked several delicious dishes in it. We usually take it camping with us and he made us an amazing apple pie in it one year. It was so good!
The Food Network has great Dutch Oven recipes and there are lots of sites that are run by Dutch Oven enthusiasts who can give you lots of tips and tricks. Just Google "Dutch Oven".
We went up to our cabin one Thanksgiving weekend and a snowstorm knocked out our power. We put our Thanksgiving leftovers in the Dutch Oven and placed it in the coals in our fireplace. In no time, we had a nice hot dinner.
I bring this up now because 1) unfortunately some of you will have power outages in the next few months, (hello East Coast!); and, 2) some of you will be cooking a lot of dishes for your Thanksgiving dinner, and you may have some, um, logistical issues fitting them all in your oven. See if you can do some potatoes or a pie outside while the turkey cooks inside.
Maybe you can give your Crazy Uncle Larry an "outside" job and send him out to tend to the Dutch Oven... Just a thought.
