Trail Foods and Cooking

Looking for some different options when taking something along to eat while backpacking/hunting/fishing other than the same old, same old, and store bought items. Seems the price of granola bars keeps going up and they keep getting smaller. Anybody make their own granola bars or something similar?

Looking for all kinds of ideas really, hot or cold. I have a Sterno Folding stove that I like as it folds flat and the fuel cans don't take up too much space, mostly use it for coffee though.

Figured it would make a good topic and am interested in hearing some new ideas or what others take along out on the trail.

Re: Trail Foods and Cooking

Ain`t that the truth man!! Doesn`t it seam like everything is getting smaller at the stores and the price keeps rising It`s getting crazy. I swear this all started with coffee cans about 10-15 years ago when they went frm 36 oz to 32 oz and then cereal boxes did it and it keeps getting worse.

Re: Trail Foods and Cooking

The first night of a backpacking trip I carry a frozen steak for an early dinner . After that a tube of peanut butter and a tube of jelly are great for short breaks and an energy boost. Although on the pricey side , the dehydrated foods are quite good and easy . Werthers hard candies are nice while walking , too. Good recipes on allrecipes.com for granola bars and similar things . Take some good hikes and lots of those nice photos to share with us old farts !!

Enjoy each day afield as if it were your last.....take the time to take it all in !

Since you have a stove I am partial to cream of wheat on a cool morning.

Hiking in.
Some other ideas.

Granola, powdered milk and powdered protein in a baggie. Just add water when ready.

Peanut butter, bacon and honey on a bagel.
