This is a great recipe. I mix up a big tub of the dry ingredients ahead of time and take it hunting and hiking. It's great with a campfire meal. I leave out the lard and keep it seperate or I use it only for frying. My buddies love it, so it's now a permanent part of our provisions list.
Canadianhistory.com "Kenny Blacksmith, a former chief of the Cree community of Mistissini of northern Quebec, told me that they learned to make bannock from the Scottish who settled up in Northern Quebec several hundred years ago. They did not have flour before the arrival of the Europeans. When he went to Scotland a couple of years back, he had the priviledge of teaching the Scottish again how to make bannock." - Jacques Dalton
