gourmet pocket snacks - Page 2

post #31 of 85
I've been known to carry a baggy of Molinari Salame. More often though I'll have some mixed nuts or a sweet and salty mix w/me.

Might just try the squid on the next trip though

Squid sounds good, but if you brought octupus, you could throw it on the icy spots.

The folks from Detroit will understand.

Herb roasted crust with an extra rare finish. It's as good as raw.

By definition yes, Carpaccio is raw meat sliced very thinly.
But it's now used as
Swordfiwh carpaccio
Tuna fish carpaccio
Breasola carpaccio
To indicate slices of something (usually meat, but also other edibles) very thinly sliced.

Now, back to the mountain gourmet.
Back in the day, everyone of us used to have a little bottle or a sporran flask in our back-pack with grappa/rum in it. Boiled eggs, oranges, a thermos full of hot tea

Also, now that you made me think of it, I was carrying BiFi salami
or cacciatorini (jäger-würst) too.

This thread has made me ask again what to have "on" me when up there...it may be worth to have a piece or two of Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano cheese....
OH, and lot of water....

I am trying Solstix salmon jerky this year -- it's OK. More like a salmon Slim Jim. For a while, I liked carrying pre-sliced pepperoni. May go back to that.

This year, I have been enjoying chocolate covered pretzels and Trader Joes Omega-3 trail mix with a handful of chocolate chips thrown in.

No, you have to roast them on a grill -- that's the way to go in the winter!

heck, use a locally hand-crafted bread, natural p-butter, some expensive jam from napa or switzerland....you're there, and with protien, fat, grain, and sugar; totally gourmet.

occaisionally I corrupt the concept with jet puff, two sugar groups should work.

where do you find jagerwurst? used to take it backpacking, would make a great lunch.

and what's breasola?
post #48 of 85
Bresaola is air-dried salted beef or deer from the Valtellina or Valchiavenna region. And the best damn bresaola there is comes from the butcher in Madesimo, IM not so HO.

Hmmm. I've tried many flavors of Lifesavers candy, including
• Butter Rum
• Wild Cherry
• Wint-O-Green®
• Pep-O-Mint
• Spear-O-Mint™
• Orange Mint
• Sweet Mint
• Cryst-O-Mint®
• Wild Berries

But I've never seen the Swedish Fish flavor lifesavers. Where do you get them? They sound delicious.

But seriously....

Chocolate Riesen is the German version of Rollos. Awesome! You can get 'em here in the US of A.

true to form, I have no idea what that guy nobody is talking about. My kid probaly does, but, nooooo I don't think I'll ask

and to the vulnerablility of the subject to callous ridicule, I must say that I have learned some things, and re-discovered jager's wurst.

you're forgetting about bresaola di cavallo. mmm, horsemeat.
post #55 of 85
If I were to carry dried meat in my pocket -- I don't -- I'd opt for slinziga. It would pack a lot better than bresaola too. You'd need a 2-liter Camelbak to combat the saltiness, though.

Never heard of horsemeat bresaola, Mr N?

Well, technically no. A snack constitutes adding something to your system. I simply regurgitated and re-ingested something, adding no caloric value to my system.

True, but at least this way you kill any food craving you might have and get on with the business of skiing.

I can do that: pocket grub: need some ideas magots. I have no front teeth, top or bottom, from years of knee smashin' on 60 foot drops, and won't quit bringin it just for lunch, so what can I gnaw on on the chair? and remember, no f____in' incisors, and not too many brain cells left so keep the packaging simple. just messin' with ya magots, keep on keepin' on out there.
