I've read some wonderful books on drying food. One great one is "Kayak Cookery" by Linda Daniel. But look also at "The Well-Fed Backpacker" by June Fleming, "Cookery" by Claudia Pearson (National Outdoor Leadership School), "High Trail Cookery" by Linda Frederick Yaffe (good for recipes, not so great for drying information), and "Wilderness Cuisine" by Carol Latimer. Camp food doesn't have to be dreary!

If you only get one, get Kayak Cookery.

  Question about drying above 105 degrees
  Posted by: waltcarr on Jun-07-06 9:14 PM (EST)
Overall, this was a great article! My only question is about heating raw foods over 105 degrees - doesn't that destroy their vitamins and enzymes?
Living in AZ, sun drying is more of an otion than elsewhere, but for drying any raw foods, i think i'd allow the time extension needed to keep the temp below 105...
(And after visiting Dr Matthias Rath's website, i would also take vitamins and a good digestive enzyme complex on the trip) Many Blessings! wc
