Shilo General Store, Hamptonville, NC

The Shilo General Store is Amish based, providing quality products hand made by Amish people. They are known for delicious foods like freshly baked bread and whoppie pies, to jams/jellies and home remedies. From the outside of the store, it looks like a farm home with a beautiful covered front porch, it’s a great place to rock on one of their rocking chairs and relax or sit at a table with friends and have a fresh deli sandwich & chips and don’t forget to grab a cool drink with the great selection of bottled soda pop. The staff is friendly and helpful, I highly recommend visiting this place next time you are in the area.

Cooking at Camp

Dutch oven cornbread with Green Chile
dutch oven cornbreadIngredients

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (4 oz) can green chiles, drained
  • ¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Light 24 charcoal briquettes or start a campfire if you want to use wood embers.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the milk, egg, and honey together. Add the dry ingredients (cornmeal, flour, baking powder, and salt) and stir until combined.
  3. Move 7 of the charcoals or embers into a ring and place the Dutch oven on top. Once hot, add the butter to melt. After the butter has melted, pour in the cornmeal batter. Sprinkle the green chiles and cheese over the top.
  4. Cover the Dutch oven and place the remaining 17 charcoals or embers on top of the lid to create an oven heat of about 425 degrees. Cook for about 20 minutes, until the middle of the cornbread has cooked through, and the top is beginning to brown.
  5. Carefully remove from the heat, serve & enjoy!
