High Altitude Cooking & Baking

Breads: High altitudes may shorten the rising time for your quick breads. Also you will want to rise twice for a better texture for breads.

Cakes: At 3,000 feet and above pressure makes the cell structure expand and cam make a course or fallen cake.Oven temperatures: Increasing the oven temperature 25°F might help the batter before the cells formed by the leavening gases expand to much.

Cookies: You will have to adjust your flour adding a little more and maybe decreasing the fat in the recipe.

Pudding and cream pie fillings: Above 5,000 feet use direct heat by cooking in a saucepan on direct heat
Pressure cooking: In a pressure cooker pressure must be increased one pound for each 2,000 feet of elevation. Things like beans and vegetables take longer to cook. Foods take longer to boil also as well as meats take longer to cook over 3,000 feet.

96-hour kits: How are your 72 to 96 hour kits? Does anything in them need updated for winter?
