      Sadly no, but the bucket is probably somewhere in the North Sea by now.

    Love this post. Have used this recipe myself many times and it’s one of the few that always turns out well 🙂

    Amen! I’ve been doing this for the last two weeks in Vermont. Makes me wonder why I ever think we need anything else.

    Wish I had a stream nearby to try out this recipe. Will have to go camping again soon.

    We’re very lucky to have a small river at the end of our garden, so we do this too. Net, jam jar, wellies & you’re away!! Fab fun for all.
