    candied ginger is fantastic stuff; dried pears are right up there too.

    hey i just picked a couple monstereo delicio (sp?) just ate one whilst doing the fence line , 2 bunnies only , but i'll duck out in a hour again , will take the other home to put with ice cream ( it hit 98 here today , everythings good eh )

    they are growing wild along the north facing area's i may make up a batch of proper home made ice cream from them

    they are cool and juicy to eat while walking but you have a hell of a time with the seeds and these folks you dont want to eat

    they cut into everything

    pity i cant send fruits i'd send ya some crystalised pineapple

    the motel i was stayed while away is owned by the folks who also own the buderim motel , i stay at when that way , its a short walk from buderim ginger factory

    we order a tray ( about 14 lb ) its just dried at a temp where the sugars come to the surface and crystalise as the water evaporates...

    not a thing added

    the secret is getting the pine from the field and cut and on the try within 20 mins

    so they converyor line it when they pick and they are in the dryer for 2 days still dripping and the stack is rotated so the top ones end up on the bottom and move up one slot every hour the first day every 2 the next for the first half day , then they dont drip no more

    been thinking of doping it here in a much smaller way like a oven load every couple days for a week or so , but aint even planted the right type yet , i've planted the minitures ( actually they are the "heirloom" variety about 1/3 of the big ones in storews or half the next size depending on the breed) that will feed me and not be wasted

    Trail mix is great, I love it, especially the dried fruits. But for us that are diabetic, the dried fruits can get us in trouble real quick! Then there's the nuts. Again, those of us that are diabetic have to be careful not to eat too many of them. About 1oz. is a serving for us. If I chose to go with a home made trail mix, it would be 1oz mixed nuts, and two, or three pieces of dried fruit! Not much there! Meats, and eggs, won't spike our blood sugars, but we still have to watch how much we eat. If I take an apple with me, I can only eat half of it at a meal!

    I usually take a coffee and bagel in the morning to get me started and woken up. Trail mix is a great thing to have when youre sitting out there and not seeing anything move. Usually whatever I eat is gone within the first couple of hours because I get bored of not seeing anything. Haha.

    In camp, a light breakfast of oatmeal with raisins & brown sugar or Steens cane syrup. In my pack, cheese crackers, or better yet, deer salami & some sharp cheddar cheese, oats & honey granola bars, water, gator aid & a diet coke. Vienna sausages & saltines with a mustard pack or potted meat :eek:!

    Supper back at camp, spicy venison soup, a dark beer and a campfire. Steaks on the grill, garlic mashed taters green beans, bratwurst boiled in beer & onions then grilled with sour kraut & the beer onions. That makes for a stinky camp.

    Also, deer camp spaghetti, which is regular spaghetti meat sauce with a jalapeno dropped in while it simmers. Chicken Parmesan , Burgundy Roast Venison, Venison tips with mushrooms and well I could go on.

    I don't do much hunting now days. But, if I went on a day hunt I would carry potted meat and/or vienna sausage; saltines; beef jerky; trail mix, peanut butter crackers & water.

    If I'm spending a few days in the woods I bring some coffee, potatos, carrots & stew fixins. I also carry bread, bacon, eggs & a cast iron dutch oven to cook in.

    When I was younger we'd spend the whole season in deer camp. Possum or coon stew was always one of our 1st priorities while we made camp. We also loved making Mulligan stew. The first deer killed was also used to feed the whole camp over the next few weeks.

    That's another thing that always goes in the pack. Whether it be a paperback novel or a book of crossword puzzzles. Get into the book and the next thing you know, you look up and there stands bambi.
