Campfire Foods To Celebrate Lag Baomer - Joy of Kosher

Nothing wrong with S'mores, they are an all time favorite at least in America, Israel is a different story.  They do like marshmallows here, but you can't even get graham crackers in Israel.  Come La Bomer, the holiday of the bonfire, the streets fill with burning wood and gatherings of people and the most popular foods are those wrapped in tinfoil.  They put potatoes and onions wrapped up into the bottom of the fire, the trick is letting them cook just enough to be able to eat them with your hands.  I even hear some put whole cans of tuna into the flames for a smoked tuna experience.  

I have some other ideas for your bonfire from around the web, tinfoil is still helpful, but don't forget the forks, knives and lots of napkins.
