I try not to go anywhere without some Cajon Seasoning. It's not actually hot but puts a nice zing into most everything. It does wonders for a lot of the freeze dried dinners.

I always carry a plastic bag of dried cilantro. It goes remarkably well with practically everything and can make a very ordinary commercial freeze-dried meal much more tasty. And it's amazing how long one can go with nothing but torillas, a little cheese, dried refritos, and some of that cilantro!

Also:

...a very small polycarbonate bottle of very good Scotch...

As stated previously...those little "free" fast food packages of lemon juice, tabasco, hot Mustard, Italian dressing, etc, always have a place in my backpack.

Agree also with the Single Malt Scotch comment...one of the "15" essentials.

if you guys are definently interested with everything hot like cajon seasoning and yeah hot mustard, something that is right up your alley is a new flavor of Grey Poupon Mustard that i have in my kitchen. its called Hearty Spicy Brown it has a bold taste due to the finely diced onions that are in it. it definently goes well with hot dogs and especially sausages. its worth checking out for sure.

I do not like mustard (I know, it makes me unAmerican). A small Tabasco bottle serves me well.

I sacrifice the weight and carry a stainless steel flask specifically designed for liquor. Plastic seems to alter the flavor. Contaminating a good single malt scotch is a heinous criminal offense. :lol:
