Putting the pot on a stump or log and letting the stump or log hold the weight of the pot helps. Mix the sauce with the drained pasta and serve . Grated cheese may be used with the pasta.

Pasta notes: Spaghetti is the traditional pasta, but wheels, or other forms that are more compact and larger will be much easier to drain.

1/2 c  Dry Milk Powder

Put the corned beef or tuna on the bottom of the pan. Open the potato packages and layer the potatoes on top of the meat. Sprinkle the cheese powder over the potatoes.

Put the oil or margarine on the potatoes. Heat the water to near boiling and add the dry milk. Pour the hot liquid over the dry potatoes and put the pot on a moderate fire to simmer gently for 40 minutes.

This arrangement should result in a slightly liquid mixture. Turn the pot from time to time if it is being kept at the edge of the fire to assure it heat all the way around. The oil or margarine is to keep the liquid from foaming.

A smaller quantity or none can be used, but more care to keep the liquid from boiling over must be made. Good served with something that will sop up the extra juices.

Buckwheat Pecan Pancakes For Camping

buckwheat pecan pancakes


MIX IN A ZIPLOCK BAG  ===========   
  2 c  Buckwheat flour 
1/2 t  Salt 
2/3 c  Wheat flour   
  2 t  Baking powder 
2/3 c  dry milk,Instant   
  3 T  egg (optional),Dried
  2 T  Oil   
  2 T  Molasses
ADD WHEN MIXING  ================
2 1/2 c  Water 
 1/2 c  Pecan halves
 1/4 c  Butter (optional)   
  1 c  Maple syrup


This is a camping recipe. Assume moderate heat on a campfire or pack stove.

When ready to cook, mix all ingredients except the butter and syrup and let set a couple minutes. If stiff, add a little more water. If you heat the pan well first, no oil is necessary; however you will need a good, flat metal spatula. If I have time, I plop 3 or 4 pecan halves on each cake instead of mixing them in. Serve hot with butter and syrup. Can be saved for later in the day; great with jam.
