What’s your cooking style on backpacking trips?
Do you prefer to mix up your own freezer bag meals using store ingredients or ingredients you’ve dehydrated at home? Or do you like eating soupy, one-pot meals that easy to heat and clean up?
Many hikers like buying commercial dehydrated dinners from companies like Mountain House since they’re easy to rehydrate in the bag and don’t require any clean up. And others like eating normal food that they can buy in the store, like cheese, bread, salami, peanut butter, tortillas, or pasta.
