As seen on hiking forums are posters wondering what do with the Harmony House Backpackers Kit – which I might add you can find at most REI stores as well. (Though I might point out that I consider the Deluxe Sampler to be a better buy – it has more variety!)
So what to do with them? Need recipes? Well here you go! Plenty to keep you occupied for many a trip – if you need more ideas just head over to Trail Cooking and search through the recipes. We happen to love using Harmony House Food’s dehydrated and freeze-dried products. They work well in Freezer Bag Cooking (FBC) and one pot meals – and as well in no-cook meals.
Pizza In A Pot – this is man food, hearty and filling.
Colcannon Mashers – mashed potatoes using up the bag of cabbage, a rare veggie to be used outside of coleslaw when hiking!
Red Bean Stew – a great way to use up the beans in the kits. Harmony’s beans are precooked for ease in use.
DIY Salsa Mix is great if you love trail burritos. You can also add it to pasta, rice and other dishes in dry form.
Lentil Couscous Salad is a no-cook meal.
Spicy Beef and Tomato Pasta – if you get the ‘beef’ TVP try it with this recipe. It is very shelf stable, carrying well while hiking.
Chicken Mushroom Rice – if you happen to pick up a jug of their mushrooms try this recipe out.
Beef and Onion Trash-erole. The title says it all!
Tuna Bruschetta – Great no cook recipe for lunch, it also works great tossed with pasta.
Now start packing and cooking!
