A camping recipe from Big John. This is a big hit with all my fishing and camping buddies. We have enjoyed a lot of relaxing hours at breakfast, or in the evening just sitting around the campfire.

Place enough coffee, for the pot you're using, into a square of cheesecloth. Make sure the cheesecloth is large enough to tie up with dental floss. Place this into a pot with cold water, and place the coffee pot on the stove or campfire. When steam rises from the coffee pot, the coffee is hot and ready. For those of you who don't like instant, this tastes like percolated coffee.

Servings: 6 - 8
