THE "WARM CORNER" OF A FINNISH PEASANT'S COTTAGE HOME Very few of the old "smoke cottages" are now to be found in the villages of Finland; they have been superseded by small houses with chimneys and windows. But the stove still remains the principal feature of a cottage interior; monopolising a large portion of the room, it often reaches from floor to ceiling, and its spacious flat-topped wings afford cozy resting-places to the family
Outdoor brick grill - this needs some sort of area to use as a work/prep station but food tastes so much better when cooked on a real grill like this with wood or charcoal. And the cooled wood remnants can be used to add to your compost pile with the ash being used on your vegetable garden as fertilizer - so this one is a two-fer!
This most closely resembles the bannock that my grandma made in her old wood fired oven. My dad swears that she made it with a bit of sugar, but I leave sugar out of my recipe. A friend once said, "It's a baking powder biscuit." It's better in fact. Baking powder biscuits have baking soda in them. Bannock just has the baking powder and salt. Makes for a less tender crumb, but bannock had to be tough enough to put into a saddlebag or pocket.
