Tasty treats made at Scioto Grove Metro Park

The Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks recently hosted a pie iron cooking demonstration at Scioto Grove Metro Park in Grove City. Led by outdoor adventure programming specialists Megan Harris and Serena Tsang, more than a dozen individuals from across the region and throughout the country tried their best to make sandwich-based creations in the pie iron without burning the bread to a crisp. Pictured here holding a lively discussion about how long they should leave their s’mores sandwich snack in the pie iron are (from right to left) Zoe Regin, Ayanna Dickinson, Asha Regin, and Zachary Regin. The twin siblings from the Galloway area were having a fun afternoon out with their aunts, one of which was visiting from Boston for the holidays. Those who were unable to attend the cooking program last month will have another opportunity this month as the metro parks will host a pie iron cooking demonstration on Jan. 31 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Arrowhead Picnic Area in Scioto Grove Metro Park, 5172 Jackson Pike.

She said the key to making a good pie iron creation is to check your food regularly and cross your fingers when you have to put it back into the fire.
