Biscuit test, getting ready for the trail!

I wanted to know how a can of refridgerated biscuits would hold up over two days (i.e. opened on day 1, partially consumed; then remainder cooked on day 2).

I put the 5 remaining out of a ten pack into a zip lock and put in the fridge (not freezer); I know this is not a good test right now, fridge is about 40F, this weekend will probably be in the 60’s.

Anyway, it seemed to work out ok, Dee enjoyed them immensly. 

Used the same pot to heat up pre-cooked jimmy dean sausages, then used a 1″ sq scouring pad to clean the pot.

Only trouble with the cooking/cleaning process is using up a lot of fuel, plus the 5 pack of pillsbury “grands” weigh about 14 oz, yikes!  Only for weekend hikes!

BTW, I tried all this in June, the temps were probably in the upper 80’s at the campsite, so I tried to keep the biscuits cool in a creek, anyway, the can popped open, and dough got all gooey, was only able to retrieve about 7 of the 10 in that can.
