Some people may not know what off-the-grid or off-grid means, so here it is --- The term off-the-grid or off-grid refers to living in a self-sufficient manner without reliance on one or more public utilities.

Off-grid living is no longer a one room log cabin in the woods. It's energy independency. You don't have to rely on utility companies, you create your own power. Today, there are more than 180,000 off-grid homes in the US.

Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler...

10:51 am - 72 degrees - blue sky with lightly scattered clouds...

We’re going camping this weekend and this super easy and delicious Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler is on the menu!  Camping food just tastes better... it’s a fact.

If you are looking for a tasty, yet simple dessert recipe - this is it!  This quick, easy, basic cobbler recipe will satisfy and sweet tooth and can be modified depending on the type of cake or fruit that you like!  It can also be made in a fire pit, in a barbeque, or an oven.

~ Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler ~
1 box yellow cake mix
2 (21 oz) cans peaches
1/2 cup butter
Cinnamon, to taste
Dutch Oven
30 pieces of Charcoal
12” Dutch Oven

Rub the inside of the Dutch oven with cooking oil or butter.  Or you can use a disposable foil liner made specifically for Dutch ovens - make clean up a breeze!

Place the Dutch oven over approximately 10 charcoal briquettes or over coals on a flat spot in the fire ring.

Once the Dutch oven is hot, pour the cans of peaches into the Dutch oven. 

Spread the dry cake mix on top of the peaches and try to spread it out as evenly as possible.  Sprinkle the top with a little bit of cinnamon to taste.

Cut butter into even sized pats (small chunks) of butter and arrange on top.

Put the lid onto the Dutch oven and arrange about 16 hot charcoal briquettes or scatter hot coals over the lid.

Bake until done.  Depending on how hot your coals or fire are, this could be anywhere between 25-60 minutes.  After 25 minutes, check cake with a clean knife of toothpick, if it comes out clean, the peach cobbler is done.  If not, add a few more charcoal or coals over the lid and check again in 10 minutes.

Serve with vanilla ice cream or whip cream and enjoy!
