Some time ago, I read the book Ultralight Backpackin’ Tips. I enjoyed it and learned a lot.
The fantastic book Ultralight Backpackin’ Tips and its equally fantastic author, Mr `Mike Clelland.
Having tried out many of the ideas from the book, for this trip, I had decided that it was time to give one of its recipes a go. Embracing my inner nerd, the previous evening, I had dutifully weighed out the ingredients for Cous-cous and Poletna Combo to the nearest gram. I also made up a knocked of Spiced Olive Oil dressing, putting this into an old whiskey miniature bottle, double bagging this in case of a leaks.
If truth be told, the yellow mixture in the zip-lock had not sent my heat a racing. So, at 8 pm that Saturday night, after a bracing walk across the moors, I had boiled up some water on my trusty cat can stove (using a ground pad to protect the ground from burns).
I gingerly mixed this into the yellow concoction, before dumping this into my pot cozy to let things develop.
A five-minute snooze later, I added the oil and tucked in.
It did not last long……
It was delicious.
I hear you ask “How does one create this ambrosia of the Gods?”
“With care and a recipe from that wonderful book“, I answer.
Seek and ye shall find. Alternately; buy the book.
PS I have no connection with the book or the author; although I feel a distinct affinity to this delightful dish. And that the author mentioned above has a cool hair-cut; just like mine!
