Trail Chef's Pro Tips: Pack Fresh Vegetables for the Trail
Think carrot sticks are just for school lunches? Then you clearly haven't enjoyed the
transcendent crunch of raw veggies on the trail--a luxurious, healthy backwoods snack.
Choose the bigger radishes of the bunch, as they’ll keep longest (use the little ones at home). Don’t wash them, as this removes the veggies’ protective cuticle. Trim off the tops and bottoms, as the stems will rot and the tails sap moisture. Again, pack in sandwich baggies lined with a folded, moistened (damp, not soaked) paper towel. Loosely fold top of bag to close.
