Freezer Bag Cooking:

Freezer bag cooking is a simple technique that is perfect for Scouts, hot water is added to dry ingredients in freezer bag much like one adds hot water to a prepackaged freeze-dried meal. (No, this is not like boiling an omelet in a bag (don’t) and there are no BPA worries with these techniques.)

Cranberry Chicken Rice (lower sodium):

In a quart freezer bag put: 

1 cup instant rice 

1 Tsp. Chicken bullion (low sodium) 

1/4 Tsp. salt, if desired 

1/2 Tsp. granulated garlic 

1 Tsp. Parsley 

1 Tsp. Dried Onion 

2 Tbl. Dried veggie flakes or freeze dried mixed vegetables 

2 Tbl.+2 Tsp. Craisins 

Also take a 3-5 oz. can of chicken with you. 

Add the chicken and it’s liquid into the freezer bag, and 1 1/4 cups boiling water. Stir well and put into a cozy for 10 minutes. Serves 1.


In a quart freezer bag put: 

1 package graham crackers, reduced to crumbs. 

1/4 cup broken pecans (toast them first for best results) 

2 Tbsp powdered sugar. 

In another bag put: 

3 oz (about 3/4 cup) chocolate chips and 

3 Tbsp powdered milk. 

In camp: Add 1/4 cup water to the chocolate. Bring a pot of water to a boil and dip the bag to melt the chocolate (the higher-quality the chocolate, the better it melts and the better it tastes). When melted, add the graham cracker crumbs and knead to mix thoroughly. How you eat it is up to you. You can let it cool and break into chunks. Serves 4-8.
