    I have been trying to get the ball rollin on the menu for the 101 class in a couple weeks. I decided to go with a classic for lunch on Saturday. Hudson Bay Bread. It is really not bread more like a beastly granola bar. This is not a light snack, it is loaded with carbs. It is even better when you put peanut butter and jelly on it. Here is the ingredients.

    Ingredients:
    3/4 lb. softened butter
    2 cups sugar
    1/3 cup light Karo syrup
    1/3 cup honey
    1 tsp maple flavoring
    3/4 cup ground nuts (walnuts)
    9 cups Quaker 1-minute oats

    [​IMG]

    First off, take all of the ingredients except for the oats and nuts, and mix them together.

    [​IMG]

    Then add the oats and nuts and mix them well.

    [​IMG]

    Press them into a pan, so they are about 1/2" thick. Put it in the oven at 325 for 15 min. Take them out and press the baked mixture with a spatula while it is hot. This will keep it from falling apart when it cools. Cut it when it is still warm.

    [​IMG]

    Let it cool, and enjoy.

    [​IMG]

    I used wax paper to separate these and vacuum sealed them They are going into the freezer till I pack for the Bushcraft 101 class in Sept.

    I'm so looking forward to this class. No just for the awesome woods learning but for the awesome Ia food.:D
    You guys just wait, it won't take long for you to realize how good dehydrated food is when Terry is making it.

    Ok everyone, I got the High carb idea! What about people like myself that have diabetes and should stay away from high carb food,what do we eat while in the bush? Any ideas would be helpful!
    Thanks,

    I have had them in a pack fo about 2 weeks and they were good to go. Never had them get sticky.


    Mac, I have no Idea the calorie count. But I have a hunch it is a lot.

    I really like to cook at home. I like to cook in the woods even more. Iz thinks we are doing dehydrated meals in Sept. He is incorrect. I will be doing all most all fresh food. I think learning how to cook in the woods really enhances the outing.

    A1 to that Brother! It amazes me all the time - people will burn food on a camp stove, yet when I teach them to cook over a camp, fire burnt offerings are kept to a minimum.

    Thanks for the recipie - I forgot about that treat. It reminds me about the time an very pretty Italian girl class mate sat next to me on a cold night in the mountains and offered me Sex in pan she had packed up. I still have the scar from where my jaw hit the ground.

    I totally agree about cooking in the bush. I enjoy it so much that at least once a week I cook supper or breakfast over my fire pit in the backyard. Helps to fine tune recipes for use on the trail. Also when just out "bushcraftin" in other words hanging out in woods. Nothing passes the time like tending the fire and stiring the pot.

    Homeslice is the wrong one to ask about eating a diabetic diet. We spend half the time in camp reviving him from comas.

    Whoa baby!

    Those sound deadly but delicious. :eek: (Maybe cut into tiny little squares for a more reasonable calorie count if you're NOT struggling through deep snow all day...?)

    I made a batch of Hudson Bay bread this after noon. They could probably use a little Tang to help wash them down. A couple of these bad boys and my paddle won't even get wet. It's been a good after noon, making these squares and listening to the music posted by everyone in a different thread. There's some good stuff there I haven't heard before. If you haven't checked it out it's worth a look. Thanks for the recipe! No doubt just reading this thread increases your risk of diabetes.

    I get 35 splurging points a week and one of those uses 33 of them. Guess I would have to stack and restack the wood pile 1 or 2 or 30 times.... and maybe I'd be allowed to have a Diet Coke. ;)

    These sort of look like no-bakes without the cocoa and coconut bits.

    Think the recipe for those is usually something like

    • 1 3/4 cups white sugar
    • 1/2 cup milk
    • 1/2 cup butter
    • 4 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter
    • 3 cups quick-cooking oats
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    In those the butter, sugar, and milk is brought to a boil, and then combined
    with the dry ingredients. Usually they're not sticky, and have some insane amount of calories.

    Wheatless bread?

    Aw, come on. Wheatless bread is easy-peasy. It's called Rye. :D

    Mind you, one usually has to bake it oneself, at home, since commercial bakeries just can't resist either the wheat flour (so much cheaper!) or the caraway seeds (argh I hate those buggers). But my last SO was allergic to wheat, so I learned that oat and rye flours make decent, if crumbly, biscuits and that I absolutely love pure-rye black bread.

    Just made some of these and they're great!!! (with apologies to Tony the tiger)

    They are like a semi moist granola bar and are VERY filling.

    Thanks for the recipe IA Woodsman.

    Yeah IA really undersold these. He made it sound like they were decent for the trail and not that great tasting, but I would eat these at any time. They are freaking delicious. I had a few at the Bushcraft 101 class and they were very filling, too. I'm planning on making a batch for my next outing.

    I had a chance to make up a batch following Ia's recipe. Worked out great. Even the 5 year old loves them and hes a very picky eatter! With all the calories in them I might have to make a batch weekly to fatten the skinny kid up!

    Thanks Ia for posting this, going to hang some deer stands today will be packing some of this in!
