Homemade Mountain House Style Back-country Meals

October 19, 2014

  The Ziploc Zip N Steam bags make it possible to create just-add-water style instant meals for the back-country. In addition, they are durable enough to re-use, if you plan for it. I liked packing then rehdrating dinner in the bag, then rinsing it out and using it to make desserts that needed a massage in a durable […]

Homemade Lara Bars (aka “Raw Balls”)

February 10, 2014

Lara bars have always been a favorite trail food. My girl friend got me into making them at home, which is fast and easy! Buying ingredients in bulk at Costco, WinCo foods, etc. keeps costs down. This is less of a recipe and more of a formula that can be modified to suit your taste and […]

The family recipe gets tweaked when the backcountry cooking fanatic starts using it! I love these cookies because they are a nice un-cookie that lies somewhere between a bread and a cookie, and it takes well to packing it with the goodies you would normally expect in trail food. At home, they work great as […]
