New to dehydrated food...help on 03/06/2012 11:43:40 MST Print View

Hi all, I'm new to the backpacking game and would love to hear some people's personal favorite dehydrated breakfasts/dinners. I'm assuming they don't taste all that great, but the convenience is too much to pass up. Also, when finished can you burn the empty packet in the fire or is that a no-no? What type of coffee/device works best?

thanks very much in advance

If you want ready to go meals (where you just add water) check out packitgourmet.com - for coffee? VIA by Starbucks.

+1 on PackitGourmet.

I started using some of their ready-to-rehydrate meals last year and they have become a staple in my backpacking meal planning. Haven't found one yet that I regret buying. I repackage them into a small freezer bag for Freezer Bag Cooking and pack out all my trash when done rather than burn it it a fire.
