    save a tree, eat a tree hugger
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Canned food is just too heavy, so I usually bring all freeze dried foods that need water to bulk up/cook. One favorite is a dried blackbean protein enriched (not sure how) powder/meal thing. Cook with water and it turns into a pretty hearty and tasty meal sort of like chilly.

    I quit foraging for food years ago. I like Mountain House, MRE meals, and there are a lot of easy prep items in the grocery store. We do a lot of cooking from scratch as well, baked goods, stews, chili.

    easy; self raising flour, add some sugar.
    I put it into a DIXIE pot mix in some water till its like dough.
    Put it by the fire and bake.
    tastes like anything from cake to a nice bread, DEPENDING on how much water you have added... the more water the more cake like, the less water the more harder it will be.

    My method for bannock is very similar to Anthonyraison's, except I add a pinch of salt to the s.r. flour & sugar. I use a small cast iron skillet for the bannock and place it over the coals. Works just fine for me.

    I mix the ingredients at home, seal in a Ziplok bag and keep it ready to go. Out in the boonies, add some water in the bag, mix, squeeze into the skillet and soon, bannock.

    I joined this forum...looking for recipe for "mix in the bag bread"

    Could have sworn in was in a cookbook by Bradford Angier.....
    Saw in in the public library....older book, great stuff....

    I was the only one that had checked it out in many years.....
    Went to check it out again ....they trashed it!

    So far I own a lot of his cook books...but no joy....?

    Idea was .....carry a sack of flour and your other ingredients...mix up on site, No bowl needed....water will soak up the right amount of water.
