|Whether you call it gorp, birdseed or trail munchies, it's all the same high energy food
that can be eaten on the go. Use a sealable plastic bag and fill it with a handful of your
favorite dried fruits and nuts. Figure that you will need 1/2 cup to 1 cup of trail mix per
person, per day. Here are a few of our favorites.
|Beef Jerky You will need: 1 flank or london broil steak (or other very lean cut of meat), salt and
pepper, 1 cup soy sauce, aluminum foil
Cut the steak into strips with the grain of the meat. It is very important to cut along the grain or the
cooked meat will fall apart into small pieces! Pour the soy sauce into a bowl and dip the meat
strips in it. Lay the strips out on a piece of foil and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper on
both sides. Place the strips on a metal rack in the oven with foil below to catch the drippings.
Oven: 150 F, Time: 10 hours
|HARD TACK RECIPE, You will need: 2 cups stone ground flour, 1 cup water.
Combine the flour and water. Knead until smooth. Sprinkle some flour on a smooth
surface and roll the dough flat until it is 1/4 inch thick. Cut biscuits out with a can or a
glass making each biscuit about 3-4 inches in diameter. Poke holes into each biscuit with
a fork. Place on a floured cookie sheet. It should come out hard and dry.
Oven: 400 F, Time: 35-45 minutes, Yield: 12-15 biscuits
|Indian Fry Bread:
You will need: 3 cups self-rising flour, 2/3 cup powdered sugar, 1/3 cup milk, 1 cup cold water
corn oil (for frying)
In a bowl, mix sugar and milk. Add flour. Gradually stir in the water until the flour is moistened and
the dough forms. Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface; knead until dough is well mixed.
Roll to a 10 inch square and about 1/2 inch thickness. Cut into 12 rectangles. In a deep
saucepan, heat some oil at 375 F. and fry the dough 2-3 minutes or until medium brown. Turn
often as you are frying. Drain on a paper towel and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
