I'll start by saying that it doesn't really matter how cookware material interacts with the human body, because you aren't going to eat your cookware. What is important is how it reacts with the foods that you cook, particularly acidic foods (which is why you don't want to use cast iron to make tomato sauces). In this regard, titanium is as close to perfect ...

What type of cookware you choose depends on what type of cooking you do. Titanium is certainly the lightest, and it's great if all you do in your pot is boil water to add to dehydrated foods (Lipton noodles, Mountain House, homemade boil-in-bag meals, etc.) or to make beverages. I've never seen or heard of a titanium pot shattering at low temperatures. ...

In the article "Is that newfangled cookware safe?" no special mention is made for titanium. Titanium is not commonly found in cookware other than backpacking because it is simply terrible for any cooking tasks other than perhaps boiling water and it is expensive. Many backpackers are willing to pay the extra money for extra weight saving. According to ...

I've had celiac for 8 years now. I am self described outdoor enthusiast and celiac is nothing that should hold you back from having fun. Out on the trail I eat quinoa, brown and black rice (black rice is super healthy), dried fruits, nuts. I'll normally bring one or two cans of soup or baked beans, sometimes canned chili, corn tortillas, jerky, lentils, ...

Heat up some coals, pour the peaches into a dutch oven, and pour the cake mix evenly over the peaches. Put the top on the dutch oven ...

I believe that Ecoque is the Pyromid resurrected. I found this in my search for new liners: http://www.backwoodshome.com/blogs/ClaireWolfe/2012/06/05/pyromid-is-back/ The liners are on Amazon for U$7.99 per dozen. (the stoves run over U$100) I can't get thru to the Ecoque website at work (filtering.....), but they do have one: www.ecoque.com I haven't ...

I managed to get the recipe from an experienced hiking friend that I think is closer to what I'm looking for: Flour, baking powder. for the amount of baking powder basically follow the advice on the baking powder, I don't and just do it by "feeling"; exact amount isn't critical. Sugar & Salt to taste. Bit of oil. That's it. On the trail, you ...

I have several gluten-intolerant people in my life, and though I haven't taken them camping, here's how I would feed them. Breakfast: for a short trip, bring some gluten-free muffins or bagels. For a longer trip, learn how to make a dough (premix the rice flour, xanthan gum etc at home) you can rise and then fry into English muffins. Not kidding, we did ...

Freezer bag cooking eliminates the hassle and environmental impact of washing your pot and dishes. You simply boil the water in the pot, then pour it into the ziplock freezer bag where the ingredients are. You eat out of the bag, so you don't need to carry separate dishes that are heavy and have to be washed. If you're using this technique, then the only ...
