Food Safety And Nutrition:
Food safety is one of the most important aspects to keep in mind when cooking on a campout. There are 3 big aspects to keep in mind: Cooling, Cooking, and Nutrition.
It is very important that dairy and meat are kept cold, or people can be get food poisoning. If you have food that needs to be kept cold, bring a cooler. This is easy on car camping trips, but on backpacking trips make sure your cooler is easy to transport and lightweight.
When dealing with meats, always precook the meats. This is important for 2 reasons. If you don’t the meat will take incredibly long to cook, but more importantly, it might not be cooked evenly, and can be diseased.
It is important to have a balanced meal in general, but even more when you’re camping. If you are low on energy and nutrients, then backpacking can be much harder, painful, and potentially dangerous. You need a fully balanced meal.
First Time Cooking
The first time you cook on a campout, there are a couple of important steps one needs to go through. For First and Second Class Cooking, make sure to talk(not just tell) the scoutmaster, Mr Lewis. You also need to check in with the ASPL for Cooking, David Lewis. You must email him, and then respond to his comments.
