[pct-l] food prep

Caroline, cook the beans at home, then mash them into a chunky paste (or
puree them in whatever broth suits your dietary parameters) - then dehydrate
them.   They rehydrate with just boiling water, and need no on-trail
cooking.  Same with split peas & lentils.   Look also in the archives for
suggestions on preparation, as well as links to suppliers of
already-dehydrated bean flake products, often available in bulk.

    I have been considering trying to take some beans on my hike - my
thought though is if you soak them, it'll soften them, but I'm still
looking at a 2-3 hour cook for decent softness - so - any suggestions
here?  They are filling, and definatly within my dietary parameters.
 anyone do split peas or lentils or anything like that, either?

It is that which is stronger than the strongest armour.  It is that which is
sharper than the sharpest blade.  It is faith, forged from mercy and honor.
Do that which is honorable and just, in the most compassionate way that you
can, and it shall never fail you.
