Kristine and I wanted biscuits, no oven, so I made them on the cooktop.
I set the burner on low, put a rack in the pan, set a little pot of water on the rack, and put the lid on the dutch oven and let it heat up.
While the dutch oven was heating I made some biscuits from scratch, not chicken feed, I used my Betty Crocker cookbook.
I took out the pot of water and rack, oiled the bottom of the dutch oven with vegetable oil, and placed the biscuits in the dutch oven. I put on the lid and set the timer for ten minutes.
After ten minutes, I turned the biscuits over... here are three turned. Then I put the lid back on and set the timer for another ten minutes.
I'm not too sure what the water did, but I didn't want to let the dutch oven heat without something in it and I didn't want to put in oil and have it cook away. This worked out great.
I was surprised they turned out so well. Always before I have used the wood stove to do this.
