What can I cook in a Dutch oven?

yellow-dutch-ovenPretty much anything! That is one of the reasons that they are so popular. A few ideas are pizza, bread, sauces, soups, stews, ribs, cakes, cobblers, poultry, meat, pies and cookies.

You’re probably thinking ‘How could I cook a cake in a stew pot?’ but with a Dutch oven, you can!

There are two methods of cooking. One is when food is placed directly into the pot. Cakes can be cooked in this way but the second method makes it easier to get them out! This is when a trivet is placed in the bottom and the food to be cooked is in a dish or pan which is placed on the trivet – cakes, biscuits, bread, pizza etc.
