"This is what I most often carry inside the corn boiler:

Dried peas & carrots Dried beans-great northern, black-eyed, kidney, etc. Corn meal Spices I’ll carry Jerky, landjaeger, sausage, or whatever I have somewhere in my pack.

I fill the corn boiler about halfway with water, two spoon-fulls of beans and meat and put on the fire. I add several spoon-fulls corn and or peas just before it starts to boil. I just keep checking until the beans and veggies are cooked through. I sometimes have to add a little more water. I can add corn meal as a thickener. One portion has about 570 cal, 100g carbs, and 38g protein.

The corn boiler will hold enough for about 7 meals."
