How to cook in the wild


Just like the etiquette on the mountain, there are also basic etiquette for camping and picnic in the mountain. I hope everyone can remember these basic common sense so that they can enjoy a good picnic time. Here are a few tips on how to make tidying up easier!
Enjoy a picnic while maintaining the natural environment
First of all, I hope everyone can remember that the mountain is a very delicate and sensitive natural environment. If the excess hot water boiled on the mountain is sprinkled directly on the ground, although it is only ordinary hot water for humans, it is very harmful to nature. is a terribly dangerous enemy, as doing so may cause the microbes in the soil to die.
The ability to form an ecosystem under the harsh conditions on the mountain is actually composed of a very delicate ecological balance. Microorganisms that we cannot see with the naked eye, if they are out of balance because of this, may also cause the collapse of the ecosystem, so special attention should be paid.
Alpine plants, one of the joys of climbing for many, can take decades to regenerate once they wilt. Not just throwing away trash at will, not only protects the environment in the mountains, but also has the effect of reducing the weight of your luggage. Although it is a very trivial matter, such as discarding the package of snacks before going up the mountain, it can not only reduce the burden of luggage, but also make it easier to organize it.
Today, I will teach you the etiquette of picnic in the mountains. In addition to protecting the environment, there are also some tips that can make people enjoy the picnic time more. If you have climbing friends who don't know these basic etiquette, please definitely tell them.
1. Where is a suitable place for a picnic?
Try to avoid places that may catch fire, such as on top of fallen leaves. If there is no table, choose a spacious space that will not hinder other climbers, but remember to avoid places with many dead leaves, which may cause a fire due to the wind. In addition, when using a separate burner, do not directly touch the ground, otherwise the hot air will adversely affect the microorganisms in the soil. It is recommended to put a special mat for climbing stoves to avoid heat conduction to the ground.
2. How to deal with excess hot water?
Absolutely can't be dumped directly! The temperature of hot water will cause the death of microorganisms in the soil or the withering of alpine plants, which will have adverse effects on the ecosystem, so it must not be dumped directly. Others, such as cooked noodles or leftover soup, contain nutrients that are not necessary for the soil, and throwing them away is equivalent to throwing away kitchen waste. Choose to drink all the soup, or add rice to the remaining soup and cook it into porridge, etc., are the solutions.
3. Can I wash pots and pans in a stream or river?
Basically it doesn't work. Try to find a way to fix it without washing it with water. If you wash dishes in the mountains, you will end up being a source of pollution to nature, so try to find a way to not wash them with water. After enjoying the meal, wipe the dishes with a paper towel before drying, and most of the dirt can be removed. If you are still very concerned about oil pollution, you can use aluminum foil to wrap it, or avoid the use of oily materials, etc., and re-selecting the type of cooking is also one of the methods.
4. Can food waste be thrown in the mountains?
It is absolutely forbidden to discard it in the mountains! The food ingested by humans is very high in nutritional value, which may cause adverse effects such as animals remembering the taste after eating food waste, and approaching humans in order to find the same taste. Try to prepare the ingredients in advance before going up the mountain, and make an ingredient plan with just the right amount. If it still causes food waste, you can pack it in a zipper bag and take it down the mountain to avoid the smell.
5. What are the key points to pay attention to when using a table or chair?
Be courteous to each other and let everyone use it together. Tables and chairs are a limited and important space on the mountain. Avoid long-term use when there are many people, and try to sit as close as possible to free up more space. You can also take this opportunity to meet and communicate with other outdoor enthusiasts. To be able to be used by more people, place the pack on the ground instead of a bench. In addition, when using the stove, try to use it on the desktop. Because heat can adversely affect microorganisms in the soil, placing it on the table can avoid damaging the environment.
6. Is there a good way to avoid oil stains on the pan?

When choosing, pay attention to the material of the pot. Although there are common materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, and titanium, these pots will be burnt and stick to the pot due to the material and firepower, etc., and it is difficult to remove them. Therefore, it is recommended to spread a layer of cooking tissue for grilling, etc., to avoid direct contact with oil. pot. However, remember to use a low fire grill when using it.

7. Is there a good way to reduce waste?
Discard excess packaging before going up the mountain. The ingredients can be taken out of the packaging and placed in the zipper bag. Then separate sweet and savory ingredients so you don't have to worry about flavors mixing together. In addition, noodles can also be put into a water bottle. It won't create garbage and you don't have to worry about breaking it. If you put it in a water bottle with hot water, it can also reduce the cooking time. It can be said to kill three birds with one stone.
