If you have ever used a pot cozy, you will find this article interesting.

On trips of, say, 3 nights or less, I don't cook. I take high quality trail mix and similar no-prep fare. It means I have more time for paddling and hiking.

Thanks for posting that. I started "boiling and cover" food awhile back when appropriate and find it quite convenient. At home I cook Sapporo Ichiban noodles by boiling water and pouring it directly into a bowel with the noodles. Cover it with a plate and let it sit and voilà! No more pots to clean. Never used an actual cozy on camping trips, since I usually don't mind tending the meal.

I've used home-made insulating packs for years when tripping. Once the water with the pasta or whatever has boiled, I stick the whole pot into a cozy letting it sit to finish cooking. Works well.
The freeze-dried envelope slides totally into the pack and a small clip holds the top closed.

I am sorry that the food misses your tongue... :rofl:

I know that's not what you meant.. but great compelling reading.

Hahaha. I was thinking how horrible it would be to eat the noodles dry so they were in your bowel and then pouring boiling water directly into your bowel!!! Yeeech how dreadful that would be. Would turn me off camping food for life.

Thanks dks for a little humor at your expense.

Good one littleredcanoe! I proofread my post and as sometimes happens missed the subtle mistakes oops. Now I have to go eat a bowl (or bowel) of oatmeal.
