Learn the Art of Winter Cooking

Backpacker Magazine recently came out with a collection of articles to help backpackers “learn the art of winter cooking.” Although the articles were short, they had some great information that may just save your butt while winter camping.

The first article, “Bring the Right Cooking Gear,” gives a few valuable tips about which type of stove to bring, how much fuel you might need, and the nutritional requirements for your body in the cold. Article two gives instructions on building a camp kitchen and even provides steps to dig out your own underground kitchen in the snow! Backpacker goes on to provide two quick passages about using your camp kitchen and different ways of melting snow which are good reads. In addition to a beneficial write-up of instructions to plan a healthy winter meal, they provide readers with two delectable recipes for “Pumpkin Spice Toddy and Wintermint” as well as the interestingly named “Molly’s Kickin’ Mac and Cheese.” These recipes and articles will make any backpacker a gourmet winter cook and truly teaches you the art of winter cooking.

    Hey has anybody checked out the Adventure Plan app for iPhone yet? I just got it a couple days ago. This app is a great idea! Every hiker needs this. (You can use it for just about any traveling, camping, fishing, etc.) It’s pretty cheap, and a lot more inclusive than the other apps like it. You should check it out.
