When most people think of Backyard Revolution Review camping foods, their senses often summon memories of s'mores, hot dogs, marshmallows, and other edible but not terribly healthy staples of Summer Camp, Boy Scout outings, and family expeditions. All of those camping foods have a place in our hearts (or stomachs) and memories, and some of them are suitable to any occasion. For serious outdoorsmen, however, camping foods need to be both lightweight and nutrient-heavy.
Not every camper or outdoor enthusiast is going to be as intrepid as Euwell Gibbons - who had a singular gift for finding the "edible" parts of just about any plant or have the fortitude and cast-iron stomach of a Bear Grylls, who can eat or drink just about anything with perfect composure. But by the same token, anybody geared toward survival will most likely be able to get by with camping foods that are a little hardier and healthier than cheese doodles and marshmallows. Some of the best camping foods are inexpensive granola bars, trail mix, and jerky.
Dried fruits and nuts are inexpensive, storable, and highly nutritious camping foods as well. It's quite easy to make home-made granola and to cure home-made jerky. There is a trade-off here between nutrition and shelf life. If you know how to freeze dry foods, or have a home dehydrator, you can build up a large supply of dried fruits, fruit leather (which is essentially like "Fruit by the foot" or "fruit roll-ups"), and jerky. All of this is splendid camping food, in addition to being really good for home food storage.
