"2) Of the decades of adventuring, we finally found a case where our corn pasta didn't work for us. Above 16,500 the boiling water was not hot enough to cook it, and instead simply dissolved it. On the other hand, pasta made of durum wheat cooked nicely but to us lacked taste."

Uh yeah: slather on some high end olive oil and dump a ton of herbs, pepper and some tasty Parmesan cheese in. Makes ANY pasta tasty ;-) lol.........

Is Jardine a fruit or a nut?

I remember all the corn pasta left in "trail boxes" at trail heads a year after Jardine's book came out. I tried to eat the stuff and went back to Ramen.
