Meals on the trail can be as delicious and varied as meals prepared at home. You can create meals to suit your tastes or diet--vegetarian, low fat, Asian, Italian. Meals prepared and dehydrated at home are compact and lightweight, perfect for the backpacker, and safer than packing perishable foods. The author shows how to prepare the meals so that they will travel well and will be easy to reconstitute in camp. The easy step-by-step instructions detail how to cook and dry lightweight, satisfying meals at home and then prepare them easily in camp--truly complete, instant meals.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Yaffe, a librarian, camper, and author of High Trails Cookery, offers more than 150 recipes for hikers seeking an alternative to the expensive, often boring, freeze-dried prepared meals that are sold in stores. Most of them are for dishes that are completely cooked at home and dried in an electric dehydrator (or an oven), then simply rehydrated with boiling water, requiring no further cooking at the campsite. There are also trail snacks and other no-cook recipes, as well as cookies, muffins, and other baked goods. Some of the recipes are vegetarian, while others offer vegetarian (or vegan) options. For larger collections and others where camping and hiking books are popular. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

    The recipes in this book are easy to make and easy to dehydrate.

    The recipes in this book are easy to make and easy to dehydrate. (Yes, you need a dehydrator to use them, but if you're thinking about taking them on a backpacking trip, that shouldn't be much of a surprise.) The ingredients are pretty easy to find, the recipes taste FANTASTIC, and unlike lots of other backpacking cookbooks, they aren't loaded with salt or other preservatives. Great way to eat healthy on trail. I 100% recommend this book!
