Camping Cooking Tips

There isn’t anything any more delightful than eating a good meal in the great outdoors. It seems like our hunger level increases the longer the time we spend outside. There are delicious foods that can be properly prepared while on your camping trip. To be successful at camping cooking, it will just require a little preparation before you head out for your incredible adventure.

It’s a good idea to measure out ingredients and place them into zip lock bags before leaving home. This will require less effort on your camping trip and make food preparation easier. Be sure to label the bags so you know what is inside of each one. Delicious dishes such as stew or soup should be prepared at home and kept in the cooler until time to heat and eat.

Your Outdoor Kitchen And Camping Cooking

One main thing that will help in food preparation with camping cooking in the great outdoors is heavy duty aluminum foil. You’ll find all kinds of creative ways in which it may be used. If you are using a propane stove, be careful that you store the bottled gas appropriately away from heat and flame. When you are finished using your cooking stove, be sure to remember to turn off both the burner and the gas valve for safety precautions.

Any meat that you wish to cook on your camping trip, should be purchased ahead of time and broken down into small portion sizes and put into zip lock baggies and then frozen in your home freezer. Using a block of ice will last much longer than cubed in helping to keep your foods fresh. Place all frozen meat products in your cooler and remove them when its time to cook them. Its fun to cook outdoors. Camping cooking over a wood fire is an economical way to prepare meals and gives the food a unique delicious flavor. Keep your food covered to protect it from dirt and insects.

Just like in your home kitchen, keep your camping cooking area clean. Protect your pans from the black smoke created by an open cooking fire and heat by rubbing the outsides with liquid dish soap before use.

If you are tent camping, protect your camp site by storing food items in your car. That way the food smells won’t attract hungry animals. Place bagged trash in the proper dumpster or if you are camping in a place where you have to hike your trash out, hang your trash high in the branches of a tree until its time to go back to civilization.

This article just describes a few of the basic safety tips you can use in order to have a safe and fun camping trip. You may wish to study camping ideas more closely before starting out on this fun adventure. For more information, use the internet. There is a wealth of information just waiting for you to discover all the handy tips to use in order to have a memorable time.
