Stocking The Hiker Pantry: Dry Mixes

A well stocked ‘hiker’s pantry’ makes the job of meal planning and trail cooking a lot easier, but is also a smart idea for at home use as well. Store your mixes in glass mason jars, and most will stay fresh for up to a year (and often longer), although if a mix contains nuts (which one below does), use that up within a few months at most.

  1. Stumbled across your blog when I was searching for other hiking blogs. I definitely think I will have to try some of these, especially the Dry Cream of Mushroom. By any chance do you have one for a dry cream of chicken? My husband is allergic to mushrooms =(

  2. Bridget,
    It’d be pretty easy to make one, using the COM soup base, minus the mushrooms, and use bits of freeze-dried chicken instead, along with a chicken dry boullion base 🙂


We'd love to hear your thoughts!
