This baking mix is going to change your world!

My years of camping have taught me a lot, from starting an excellent campfire, to identifying edible plants in the wild, to camp cooking.

One thing I learned was an excellent recipe for an all-purpose baking mix that can be made ahead of time and later used as a base for many different recipes. Today, I don’t camp so much, but I still use this recipe at home because of its versatility.
