One great way to eat well on a hiking or backpacking trip is to dehydrate meals you have prepared at home. Many people are scared of the thought of dehydrating food for their bushwalking trip but we have found it a simple and easy way to eat cheap, home cooked meals that taste great!
As always, with anything that is good in life, it takes a little effort. But don’t stress, the rewards far outweigh the time spent creating a great meal, ready to eat out in the bush. The food is lighter, much tastier than “satchel” freeze dried and you can make it to your own taste or dietary requirements.
In this video, Deb and Frank explain what a dehydrator is, how it works and how they use it to dehydrate great home cooked food for not only multi day trips, but camping and at home.
We hope you enjoy it!
In our book, Food to Go, we have a step by step guide on how to dehydrate a meal. It has some fantastic, close up pictures that we hope make the whole exercise easy and simple.
