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.
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
