I have used commercial dehydrated meals for backpacking and long sailing trips, but never been completely satisfied with the taste.Given modern technology for freeze drying etc it seems unlikely that home drying could be an improvement.Has anyone tried, been successful, and have any tips?I'm happy to try drying components separately, rather than as a complete meal, but it would be more convenient to prepare complete meals.
While it is possible to buy home food dehydrators , things like SpagBo don't come out well. They aren't bad for fruit.You may be able to turn up a copy of Camping and Woodcraft by Kephart which describes the preparation of Pemmican, jerky and other such food.The swag men covered hundreds of miles through the bush while living on Damper bread and billy tea. Google that.
