Default Backcountry recipes

Do you like to eat well in the bush? Do you plan your meals in advance. Do you sometimes look over at what others are having and think,"hmmmmm that sure looks good."

I thought I'd start a thread whereby folks could share favorite Backcounrty meals, recipes, tricks and tips.

Since I do not own a backcountry recipe book, I thought I'd also ask if anyone out there knows of a good online source of Backcountry Recipes. Here's one I found interesting;

Foxtrot's Winter Soup.

1 large zip lock bag
1 carrot sliced
1 long onion sliced
3 cloves of garlic minced
1 Tbl spoon of fresh chopped ginger
1 cup chopped chicken fried in pan
1/2 cup snow peas cut in half
1/4 cup Balsmati rice, raw
1 can of baby corn (Cubed)
Salt & Peppa
1 cube chicken boulon

Put all ingrediants into Zip Lock Bag. Once your on the mountain bring one liter of water to a boil, add contents of zip lock, boil 20-25 minutes. MMMMMM mmmmm good.

Keep on Treking

Hey, this is a good idea! If there is enough interest, we could create a new forum for this. What are your thoughts?

I'm not much of a chef, but I like to have a good bag of trail mix handy. I find that Costco has awesome trail mix. Big bag, lots of good stuff in it, and it is way cheaper than elsewhere.

Yeah, thats a great idea Jim, traffic allowing that is. I usually go to the local health food store for gorp, dried veggies, dried fruit and dried anything for that matter.

I once spent an entire weekend dehydrating food in my oven. Peppers, mushrooms, celery, you name it. Did I mention it took me the whole weekend? I cut all the veggies into thin little pieces, and dried them for 10-12 hours each. I had 4 trays going. Very time consuming. It took me the whole weekend. I was left with a small zip lock full of dried veggies. The following day, I happened by my local health food store, stuck my head in, and they had a bag of dried veggies, a bread bag full, FOR $2.45 !!<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

I've been hooked on what I can find there ever since. No more weekends dehydrating for this guy.

How long did it take you again? <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

That's pretty crazy - but then I can't really talk. I spent the better part of a 15hr day doing the same thing once! Won't be doing that again...

What types of veggies were there at the health food store? How were they packed?
