Dehydrated Backpack Meals

Dehydrated Backpack Meals

Since sauces are a great way to add flavor to any good meal, I like to make a sauce and dehydrate it to something like fruit leather and add it to the mix in camp. Once again you can be creative. Spaghetti, Brown Gravy, Sweet and Sour, Chow Mein, Fried Rice, and many more sauces can be added to whatever meal you decide to create. If you don’t want to dehydrate your own sauces, just look in the grocery store dried sauces section. I like the fried rice mix.
