Sliced bacon freshly cut is best; do not bring it to camp in jars or

cans, but cut it as needed. Each girl may have the fun of cooking her

own bacon.

Cut long, slender sticks with pronged ends, sharpen the prongs and they

will hold the bacon; or use sticks with split ends and wedge in the

bacon between the two sides of the split, then toast it over the fire.

Other small pieces of meat can be cooked in the same way. Bacon boiled

with greens gives the vegetable a fine flavor, as it also does

string-beans when cooked with them. It may, however, be boiled alone for

dinner, and is good fried for breakfast.
