M.%I.AK()I.'I: XE%VS ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: .:q History lives again in Abilene July 11 and 12 when outdoor cooks from all over the Southwest gather to pay tribute to the trail cooks of yesteryear. The 5th Annual In- ternational Cowboy Campfire folks warm up their cooking pots on Saturday, followed by the pros on Sunday. All will compete for valuable prizes, with top money in the pro division being $1,000. The idea is to duplicate as closely as possible the items is a proper container for the starter, the best being an earthenware crock with a good lid, close fitting but not airtight, Do not use a tinned container as the sourness of the dough will cause a poison. For this recipe you need a 3- well greased pans. Iron containers give best results. Grease tops of biscuits generously. Let rise from 5 to 10 minutes before baking. Bake in a very hot oven until browned. The closer the biscuits are crowded in the they will rise. Heat for they will rise. Heat for baking sourdough biscuits oven is at 400 to 450 degrees. You need to experiment with your oven to guage the hottest temperature that the biscuits Cook-Off will feature com- petition among professionals, amateurs, and young foks. All will be trying to imitate as closely as possible the feats of the old time chuck wagon cooks who helped to develop the cattle industry in Texas. Substantial prize money in each division encourages their best efforts but the spirit of the event is generated by nostalgia. Before the railroads came to Texas cattle had to be herded north for shipment to the markets in the midwest. That was the heyday of the chuckwagon cook and Abilene's annual celebration of his culinary skills offers 'many attractions for visitors. In addition to the cooking cooking that was done on the cattle trails a hundred or so years ago. New fangled gadgets are strictly for- bidden. All cooks use the dutch ovens, enamel coffee pots, and roasting spits that the old-timers used. Prizes are also awarded for the most authentic campsite. Contestants are required to produced a main dish with a vegetable, some kind of bread, coffee, and a dessert. An optional extra dish dish be added. No premixed ingredients are allowed, and the foods are limited to things that were actually available to the trail cooks. Admission price is $1 for adults and 50 cents for quart to l-gallon crock. If the container is too small, the sponge will overflow when it starts working. I cake yeast (or I pkg. dry yeast dissoved in 2 pints (4 cups) warm water Add: 2 t, sugar 2 pints flour (4 cups) ! raw potato, cut in fourths Mix in crock and let rise until very light and slightly aged. Do not let it get too sour and do not let the sponge chill. For best results your starter should be used daily. If not used often it will get sour and die. Do not be discouraged if your first sourdough biscuits are not a great success as the pan for baking, the higher will bake without burning. ,,,,ga, Tr0t, Keep i/ Game Wardens Busy Illegal trotlines keep game wardens busy across the stale. In a recent 30-day period, Parks and Wildlife Depart- ment officials estimate more than 1,(0 miles of lines were taken. They also estimate only one trotline out of five to 10 is legal.
