Green pine? you know nothing. Green pine merely adds "flavour" - someone strong but
still flavour.

While not on the trail, I was once fed a campfire roasted burger at a bush party - it was truly horrible, I then looked at what the "chef" was cooking them over - the fire made from
extra creosote and oil soaked old CNR rail ties, which some helpful bozo had lopped into log size lenghts with a chainsaw and split with an axe like cordwood, because they were too dumb to wander into the bush 10 feet and find a deadfall to cut up. YUCK! I wonder to this day the carcinogen index of that half a hamburger patty.

Well, phat, I guess you would have enjoyed the bisque, then - there would have been plenty, because none of us could choke it down. I must travel with picky eaters. Nowadays I just stick with stuff you can't ruin, like spray cheese and bourbon.

I'm still wondering where they were hiking to catch the shrimp for the bisque.

Hey come on Kev, I watched Les Stroud scooping shrimp out of a pool in the amazon on TV, so I'm sure it was something like that <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Well there have been a few disasters (all part of the job of writing wilderness cookbooks I guess). The worst probably was the one where I accidentally double the water amount for rehydrating my spaghetti sauce. I couldn't even make a soup out of it. Tomato water anyone? lol

I have had good results with the 'cook whatever's left on the last night' method. You need some carrots and celery to balance whatever carbs you are adding. Also, salt is critical.

The worst meal I ever had camping was dried potato and onion soup with dried scallops. The scallops tasted like rubber bands and I threw them all in the fire.
