Bedouin cooking

Bedouin can be great cooks. Two favorite dishes are sand baked bread and fried dates. To make the bread you mix a dough of flour, salt, a little sugar and water. This you roll out flat. You then scoop away the embers of the fire and lay the bread in the sand. Then cover with sand and embers. After ten minutes turn the bread over and cook the other side. Adjust the time depending on the thickness of the bread and how many embers you have. Though you may imagine the sand will stick it does not. Carefully brush with your
hand and you will have a marvelous loaf of bread.

Fried dates is very simple- just a little oil in a pan over the fire. Eaten when soft with the bread they are sweet and delicious.
