Seemingly endless in number, I could go on and on and on publishing various recipes of bannock. Not seeing the point of that, I thought the article on bannock in the March 2015 issue of The Fan Hitch would surely be the last one. However, quoting the title of the 1983 James Bond (Sean Connery) movie, “Never Say Never Again,” when I read David Thurton’s “Bannock recipe: How to make a northern staple” in the June 13, 2015 on line issue of CBCnews|North, I couldn’t resist. This one is extra special because 1) it comes from waaay up north (Inuvik, Northwest Territories, Canada) and 2) there’s a video demonstration of how to make it! Thank you to CBCnews for granting permission to reprint it here from their original web page where you can also see a series of five photos of the preparation.
