|I think it's about time I share two of our favorite trail foods here in Minnesota. Our COHT Chapter really enjoys the following;
Popcorn Pudding for breakfast; Pop some corn at home and bust it up and roll it flat with a rolling pin, it is now so light and easy to pack and carry. When you wake up on the trail, place corn in a boiler or kettle, add cranberries or blueberries and some sugar and boil. It doesn't take long at all! Pretty much instant, eat and back on the trail shortly! Light to carry, quick and tasty ,all in one!!
Boiled beef, a true favorite of ours;
Simply get a small lean roast, about fist size, and boil in cider vinegar till center is cooked, use a meat thermometer. Wrap this beef in a rag and your set to go. Being cooked it will hgold up to 4 days, and being covered with vinegar preserves it as well! After 2 days of jerk it is nice to "carve" some tender meat and roast it on a stick over a fire,Mmmmmmmmmmm, everyone else will be so jealous. The only problem is, that when cold it is tasy, so we often munch on it on the trail and have none left for the fire.
Both of these come from, Minnesota trekker and well known trekker and former OTT writer David Schmid. Dave is among that handful of trekkers that is truly a master these were found,documented and introduced to us by Dave.
