Making food at camping is one of the toughest as well as one of the most amazing jobs to do. Although it is possible to utilize pre-cooked food on camping but there is just something amazing about freshly cooked food especially the one which is cooked outdoors. It just makes food a lot more delicious for some unknown reasons!
The basic idea of outdoor cooking at camping is same as normal cooking however with the help of a few essentials your job will get a lot easier and fun to do.
One of the major problems which are faced by almost each and every camper is not preparing enough for cooking. When the time of cooking comes at camping there are literally hundred’s of things that you feel could have been added on the current essentials.
However, most of it can be easily solved if you just pack up a few items which can be utilized for a varied number of things.
Cooking Stuff You Will Be Needing
For usual cooking at your homeplace or workplace, you have separate cooking gear and vessels for serving various cooking purposes. But when you are going on a trip especially on camping your choices gets limited.
Therefore, it is immensely important to take only the best with you. A few things that are must include:
#1. Partly Cooked Food
If you aren’t a cooking master then it is probably the best that you stick up with partly cooked food or easy to cook food (including packed food items). This sort of food is mostly cooked and just need a few simple steps to make it fit for consumption.
If you are a cooking master then instead of sticking to partly cooked food only, you can also take up various cooking essentials that you feel would be required such as a few veggies, spices, oils etc.
However, do note that taking up items like these will add up a lot to the baggage so be careful about what you choose.
#2. Fire Making Essentials
Fire is the backbone of cooking. Without fire, it is nearly impossible to cook food. Therefore, you should work on picking up a few fire making essentials or probably gather some at the campsite.
If possible then pick up a camp stove with 2 burners instead of going up with a single one. You will probably need a source of gas or electricity for running so make sure that you are able to fulfill that need completely before going towards its direction.
Water is used in nearly all sorts of cooking. So, it is quite necessary to take up water with you. Now, it is very much possible that you may not be able to receive a fresh or drinkable water source at your campsite so it’s probably best if you take up a couple of big water bottles along with you that are strictly utilized for cooking purposes.
#4. Cooling Container
A cooler or a cooling container is a big necessity for campground cooking. In order to maintain the freshness of the food and to cool up the drinks, you simply cannot miss it.
Usually, you will be needing a lot of ice for putting up in your cooling container or cooler so make sure that you are able to fulfill this need. Moreover, you will be needing to replenish this ice from time to time so you will be needing it in a big abundance.
#5. Utensils Kit
A utensil kit for camping involves all the necessary utensils that you will be needing at camping for normal cooking. Mainly it includes a few cooking pots and vessels, plates, spoons, knives, and containers. It is further suggested to take up some aluminum foil or any other similar item for storing or wrapping up the cooked or uncooked food.
