Love Hiking? Camping? Food cooked over an open fire?
Want to produce camp meals that are hassle-free – and beyond delicious? Discover how to travel light while feeding sumptuously? That’s just the start of what this book does for you!
“Really Simple Wilderness and Campfire Cooking” distinguishes between cooking in vehicle-accessible campsites, on the one hand, and in virgin, untracked territory, on the other, where all you have is on your back – or in your canoe!
The book describes how to select and use different woods in different circumstances; what to do when you have no dry wood available; how to start a fire, and how to find, store and use dry kindling. It shows how to cope with wind – and how to cook in the wilderness with the minimum of equipment.
The book explores the benefits of fireless cooking, using heat retention principles, both in the wild (by using materials naturally available) and in camp with an easy-to-make haybox.
Potjiekos, or Dutch Oven, cooking methods are covered (and in even greater detail in the second book featured, below) and a number of proven slow cook recipes, are provided for you.
The book gives a number of little known secrets for storing foods in the wilderness, and describes a backwoods “smoker” for preserving foods like trout, birds and small game.
There’s a section on weight-friendly camping and wilderness tools, tips and recipes for seasoning mixes, and rubs and pastes specifically for outdoor applications.
Very few outdoor cookbooks cover BOTH vehicle-accessible campfire cooking and food preparation in true wilderness. This one does! – in 150+ information-packed and illustration-rich pages
