    I love reviving old threads...:clown:

    Something that I've come across that works awesome is freezer bag cooking. This lady put together a cookbook called trail cooking for idiots or something and it's super easy, light and good!

    You mix all the stuff together in quart size freezer ziplocks and pack it in! When you're in camp all you do is boil water, put it in the bag wait 10 minutes and eat it right out of the bag!

    Here is the link to her site:

    I'm going to start a new thread for backpacking meals now. I'll start by posting one of my favorite recipes, please add on.

    Idahoan potatoes, generous amounts of tobasco/pepper/dehydrated chili mix/bacon bits/jerky bits.... heck anything that sounds like a half decent idea goes good in mashed potatoes on the trail.

    only good for about 3 straight meals, then pototoes arn't what's for dinner.

    Granola bars and gorp all day. Then liquor or beer (if you are up to packing it in) for the carb load. No mess and you don't even have to quit fishing. :)

    OK, I'll bite (no pun intended)...Trout Jeremiah-my recipe when I was guiding: Rice-a-roni, a can of crab meat, can of shrimp, diced shallots and button mushrooms stuffed into the body cavity of the trout after it's fried in corn meal, sage, garlic powder, salt & pepper, and a touch of thyme.

    Allison, if you can find one of those old GAZ fuel bottles, the red ones made from spun aluminum with the vitreous coating on the inside, and the stopper like those Grolsch beer bottles, if you decant champagne SLOWLY into the bottle and seal it up, it'll keep champagne bubbly up to 18 hours, and you don't have to lug the glass around! Last time I saw one was a few years ago at Jack Dennis' place in JH-big enough for a magnum of champagne.

    This recipe won me $500 in a cookoff sponsored by Jetboil. Sorry it's not more refined, I don't measure much when I cook.

    1 cup couscous
    1 1/4 cup water
    dried peas
    raisins
    shredded coconut (the big kind if you can find it) preferably unsweetened
    unsalted cashews, broken up
    a bit o' brown sugar
    curry powder
    cinnamon (smidge)
    salt

    Bring water to boil, add peas and couscous. Boil a minute or so. Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well, cover, let stand 10 minutes or so. Fluff, serve. Makes about 2 cups.

    Allison done easy: Have ticket, will cook? Is it easier to get you to cook for a campout than Jerry? Altho he admittedly has to pack about 3 tons of special cooking gear, so backpacking is out.

    Is the couscous a main course or a side dish for backpacking? I don't know much about couscous in case it isn't obvious. But I do have a Jetboil which I've only used for boiling water so far. Kinda' makes it sound as though I can't cook at all. Not the case. I just have a limited repertoire, really limited for backpacking.

    I would say it's a side unless you add protein (pouch o' chicken or poached trout would both work) and then it's a main. I'd probably like it with chopped dried apricots better than the raisins.
