Cooking on the Otter trail.

Unread postby TankFish » Mon Feb 17, 2014 11:07 am

Hi,

We are doing the otter on the 14th of March. Just looking for some advice with cooking. We going to be taking oats, pastas, cous cous etc and I am just wondering if we should carry gas for all our meals or if it would just be easier to boil the food with firewood etc at that braai facilities?

Are there any major pros and cons I need to consider?

Thanks,
Justin

You'll want to take as little as possible, and food that cooks as quickly as possible - you want to use as little gas as you can get away with, so you carry less.
Get the thinnest pasta you can, it cooks quicker.
Soak your oats in water overnight, in the morning you just drain them and heat. If you're using instant oats you don't need to do this.
PM me if you want some meal suggestions.
