Simple Outdoor Pleasures III: Cooking With Your Thermos

Planning to do some serious hiking, biking, or backpacking and need a simple way to make nutritious meals on the run using a minimum of dishes and cooking equipment? Then thermos cooking might be for you.

For most meals made in a thermos (you’ll need a fully stainless steel-lined 1 quart thermos with a small-medium sized opening like the Aladdin Stanley, not those wide-mouthed, styrofoam insulated cheapies that the kids take to school) all you’ll need is a good thermos, the ingredients you plan to cook, some hot water, and a little patience.

Plus, if you’re camping, boating, etc. and don’t have easy access to boiling water, simple hot water will do…however be prepared for the cooking process to take a bit longer. (For many, thermos cooking can also be a good technique to know in the event of an extended power outage.)

The best way to get started with thermos cooking is to read this thread about it which has tips and recipes for successful and easy thermos cookery from people who do it for a wide variety of reasons.

There’s also another good thread here where the author compares his experiences cooking steel-cut oats, grits, stew, pasta, etc. on a conventional stovetop with those he had cooking in a thermos.
