Tips for Campsite Food Storage:

  1. Plan detailed menus using common ingredients to reduce your ingredient list and lighten your load.
  2. Be organized. Pack food according to its intended use. Airtight containers and sealable plastic bags make useful tools that can be recycled and used for many other campsite purposes.
  3. Dry mixes for pancakes, waffles, muffins, dry rubs, and herb mixtures can be measured and packed in the portions required for each recipe. Later, mix with water at the campsite or use to season the catch of the day.
  4. Cool it! Keep all perishables in an ice chest with a tight-fitting lid. Items like juice, milk, and water can be stored in plastic containers and frozen. This will help maintain a cold temperature in the cooler. Double-wrap all meats in plastic, label the packages, and be sure they are frozen before being tucked into the cooler.
  5. Keep eggs fresh by storing them in a cooler. Turn them large end up in the carton - this keeps their air cell in place and helps prolong freshness.
  6. Don't squash baked goods. Place loaves of bread in a plastic or cardboard container.
