    Make "Bark" from starchy foods high in complex carbohydrates. When you cook and rehydrate Bark with other vegetables and meat, your backpacking meal turns into a thick stew. Bark makes a great backpacking food because it weighs in at a couple of ounces per serving dry. Ten pounds of potatoes barks down to just eleven ounces. If you run out of fuel or water, you can munch on Bark dry. Bark will reconstitute right in your mouth. Pumpkin Pie Bark goes in like a chip and down like pie!

    Bark to bulk up your backpacking meals. Dehydrated food takes on flavor and builds stews and sauce. Several different recipes. Tasty and can eat dehydrated (chippy) or rehydrated. More than mashed potatoes :) pumpkin pie and cherry chocolate

Bean Bark...a website that has recipes on dehydrating meats, fruits, and vegetables so you can take them backpacking/camping. You reduce the weight of the food for easy backpacking and then rehydrate at the campsite. Wish I had seen this website YEARS ago!

Some interesting ideas about dehydrating for hiking and camping. Not entirely sure all of these are safe. (For example, is it really okay to dehydrate meat without turning it into jerky?)

    It is completely safe to dehydrate meat. You just have to do it properly to make sure it is fully cooked first and doesn't go mouldy.

Several recipes and tips including different types of jerky (even salmon,) fruit leathers and even making almond flour!!

Dehydrate your own food using a dehydrator? If the power goes out, they say to use a vehicle to keep the bugs out. On a hot day, put oven racks of food inside and let them dry in the sun.
