"Yes, yes! I've been searching for this recipe for years, and remember adding the corn AND the detergent outside of the pot for an easy clean-up. Don't know why it isn't included in our original GS books. Can't wait to recreate it! Tx!!!!"

"I remember making it in LARGE quantities for a Girl Scout Troop. WE used 2 cans of tomato soup and canned corn for the vegetables. Remember coating the cooking pot with dishwasher detergent so that the fire would not scorch the pan and it would clean easily?"
