Pacific Crest Trail Map

Backpacking food, ugh.

So, I pride myself in being an excellent cook. (modest, too). I've never been a fan of any of the freeze-dried, pricey, and essentially tasteless backpacking foods. To add entertainment to my life, I have been recently diagnosed with a set of dietary restrictions. Fun times. So, I have an opportunity this trip to create some of my own recipes that work on the trail and in my gullet.

I've recently obtained a dehydrator and have made some really excellent beef jerky. It keeps quite well if vacuum packed. I'm thinking that I can dehydrate some key ingredients, buy the rest from wholesalers like Harmony House and pull together some decent, single serving camp food that does not rely heavily on dried mashed potatoes and raman noodles--not that I can eat those. What can I say, I like a challenge. Maybe I can come up with some ideas that are gluten-free, soy-free, and dairy-free and not tasteless or completely comprised of potatoes and rice.

As I experiment, I'll post recipes.
