Great article! I used your yam idea combined with some ideas from Carol Crooker last year. Last weekend I made a big skillet full of grated yams, buffalo burger, fresh onion, stewed tomato, brown minute rice, canned sliced mushrooms, and spices. I tested it on my wife, which is the true test of whether it is really good or is it my wishful thinking. It passed the test. She had thirds. I dehydraded it over night and took a serving to work on Monday for lunch. It re-hydrated nicely and was almost as good as the day before. (90%). I’m adding this to my trail recipes collection.
Also a note on steam muffins. Another idea from Carol…use the little aluminum foil cup-cake thingies. I snuggle 4 of them into the bottom of my 4” diameter pan, add about one-quarter inch of water and light about 2 minutes worth of alcohol. Lid on. After the lid cools to the touch, I light another 2 minutes worth of alcohol. Usually from beginning to end is about 15 minutes of steaming, but only 4 minutes of flame. I’m going to make one of the cozies per your instructions in this article and see if this might cut down the flame time a little.
Thanks again for the great ideas and illustrations! steve
ps: Carol, I didn't notice the second and third pages of posts. I was wondering why you weren't jumping in on this...
Sorry about that!
