1/10 Photos of Australian Cheese, Garlic and Chive Damper
Damper is a traditional Australian bread, made without yeast, and commonly made on a campfire in a cast iron camp oven. This is tweeked from Margaret E. Walker article in Outback Camping When Margaret was asked her what kind of tasty cheese, and learned that the word 'tasty' is used in Australia the way 'sharp' is used in the US. We thanked Margaret for helping us learn and had a good laugh at the thought of eating non-tasty cheese.
