For Children - Sligo Creek Hedge School


At the Sligo Creek Hedge School, food is very important - particularly our daily potatoes and tea time foods. Here are 2 favorite camper recipes

Oven Fries

Cut Idaho potatoes into long, thin sticks. Coat with oil (olive oil is good), a little salt. Optional pepper, paprika and other herbs. Bake at 450 degrees for about 40 minutes or until done.

When I was 10, my father had a summer sabbatical in Scotland. We learned this recipe from the wife of the local minister in Crail, the little fishing village we lived in. I have never found a better one.

Christine MacIntyre's Scones

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 T. butter or margarine
  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1/2 c. less 1 T. milk

Sift flour and baking powder. Rub in the butter. Mix in sugar, egg and enough milk to make a softish dough. Roll out and cut into rounds (I use a glass to make the circles). Place on a greased & floured baking tin and brush over with egg or milk, if like. Bake for 7-10 min. Serve hot with jam and clotted cream or whipped cream.
