“Growing up, bannock was always around at our meals. Living in the north with stores far and few between we packed a lot of homemade lunches for any type of trip. You can enjoy bannock in -40 while ice fishing or on the Richardson mountains while hunting. We almost always had bannock served with a bowl of soup. This recipe was given to me by my mom and it is truly one of my comfort foods.”
