Wilderness cookingCooking is a skill of great importance for all wilderness travelers. Cooking not only makes many foods more appetizing to taste but also ensure that parasites and bacteria are killed.
But how to prepare food in the wilderness if you have no cooking utensils available? There are methods of cooking, that you should know, which not require any cooking equipment. Here are a two simply cooking tips:
Cooking with hot rocks
Simply light a fire above a bed of non-porous rocks. Donít use soft, porous stones with high moisture content which might explode on heating.
Let the fire burn for half an hour or more. Meanwhile, prepare your food. Brush away fire and embers with, for example, a handful of long grass.
Cook food directly on the hot rocks. Use it in the same fashion as you would a frying pan. This metod is ideal for fish, thin meat slices and frying eggs.
Cooking in mud
Wrap your meat in fresh grass. Tie the grass off using natural cordage, completely covering the meat. Cover the package in at about 3 cm (1") of wet clay or mud with no grass showing through. Place the package on a deep bed of embers and build a fire above.
A good sized fish take around an hour to cook. A small game, such as a rabbit, takes about 4 hours.
