    The War of Northern Aggression.
    Staple diet for both sides. Hardtack and fatback.
    It's like a hard flour biscuit. Like, real hard. Had to soaked to soften it up some.

    It might help a little but I think either way you are going to loose a little to the bag. You could maybe try turning the bag inside out when you are done and then scraping out the remaining with your finger.

    I think I recall another cooking method is to boil it in the baggie. Definelty need the heavy grade baggie for that.

    Maybe I disremember.

    they do make bags that can be boiled i would not however do that with one that does not specifically say that or you may end up with porage full of melted plastic

    Why not just bake the bread/muffin/biscuit instead of temping fate by biting into a literal brick? You could still use the alcohol stove if you want, you just need a nesting pot and low heat.

    I'm shy a nesting pot. I did, however, have a bannock recipe on the stove, fried in Gramma's cast iron, for part of my lunch. :) Very basic recipe I linked before...with a little extra sugar :yum:

    I was at a loss for words before, I think the technique is called "dry baking" if any of y'all want to search out further info.

    Woohoo! I upgraded today.
    My iPad2 (16gb circa 2012) has been good to me but the 3rd keyboard has failed and the pad has been glitch in on me for a year. I have been unable to do many simple things I used to because the latter updates were too big for it and froze it up. Nothing more frustrating than typing a huge reply to someone only to press delete and see it seize up, only allowing me to close the app and start over.

    Well, no more. My latest EDC purchase was an iPad PRO and Logitech keyboard.

    Pricey, but worth it.

    HUGE screen and cool new functions to boot.

    Met an EDC'r today. I parked next to him and saw his MaxPed bag with a Streamlight Sidewinder on it. Told him about the Forums as he was in need of iFAK info.

    Has anyone seen a pic I posted lately of an electrician's warning sign? I can't find it.
