    Bikepacking on Passover

    ...this coming weekend, The Historian and I are doing a 2-day ride where we'll camp for the first time. Just brainstorming, here. We'll have a stove and a pot. Fortunately, all I'll need is a dinner, two lunches, and one breakfast.
    • Stuff that's no good:

    Anything with grain (except matzah, of course). That means no bread, no cereal, no pretzels, no pasta, and so on.
    Anything with beans, peas, or corn. That includes corn syrup, whoch cuts out almost all packaged foods in the US.
    • Foods that work:

    Salami and such (should be okay for a day out of the fridge)
    Dried fruit
    Veggies
    Power Bars (I think)
    So... any more ideas? Eggs are good, but I'm not hauling them on my bike. Chicken soup and matzah balls... I guess there's no reason I couldn't take it along if I had some ice packs, but that seems like a lot of trouble.

    Hi,

    for the hearty breakfast: Fried and scrambled egg with ham and bacon

    at lunchtime I never cook :-)

    for the dinner (without corn - this means no pasta/rice etc): meat / fish (grilled or wiht sauce) with potatos

    But for these type of food you'll need no stove and pot - only a barbeque place and a (or better two) pans :-)

    Um... Kosher for Passover food. But that does indeed sound good.

    Eggs would be a great breakfast, though.

    Meal plan. Matzah is a given at each meal.

    Saturday:
    Lunch - Tuna, cheese, dried fruit
    Dinner - Salami, veggies. Is there a way to cook potatoes on a camp stove?

    Sunday:
    Breakfast - Salami and hard boiled eggs
    Lunch - tuna, veggies

    Snacks: Nuts, fruit, power bars, macroons.

    Oatmeal.

    Pre-cook the potatoes and simply re-heat them.

    There are freeze dried eggs. They are actually pretty decent.

    Some of the stews are pretty good. It would not surprise me if the had freeze dried kosher meals. Check REI and a few of the other outdoor stores.

    Just be Sephardic for the duration of the trip and then you can eat all the Kitniyot you want . It's really not forbidden, just traditionally avoided by Ashkenasim.

    Down here I'm taking a "when in Rome" approach.

    There are several different types of jerky including beef, salmon, turkey, tofu etc. There is also protein bars made with Quinoa (keen wa) that are permitted for Passover. We actually eat is and it's pretty good. We also eat products which use flax and I can't find anything that would suggest that is is not kosher.

    There are some derivatives of kitniyot, such as corn oil and peanut oil, that unless you are pretty strict many still use during Passover.

    Or just buy a packet of the gourmet dried mashed potatoes. They're very good.

    Gotta watch some of those dried mashed potatoes... many contain corn syrup solids and soybean oils.

    Perhaps a nice potato vodka would do instead


    I don't know why you've nixed the thought of carrying eggs, Neil. They've always traveled well when I take them. Parboiled potatoes should be kept cool. It's not that difficult to boil raw ones in the field. Olives are OK, yes?

    Olives are fine, but I honestly can't stand them.

    I'm going to hard-boil a few eggs and bring them.

    This seemed to work quite well for you, didn't it? I didn't see the tuna, however.

    Gee Historian, you really want to get something off your chest, don't you. You seem to be stalking all the threads he started, and now you've even changed that little thing under your user name to "Untrustworthy" Cyclist.

    I'd suggest you and Neil get together, work out something that is acceptable to you both, and post the story here to take us out of our misery (or yours).

    I'm sorry, please explain why this thread isn't worth reviving for it's own sake. And, of course, you are free to put me on your Ignore list, or if you tend to netnannyism complain to a moderator.
