I recently put on the side bar of this blog a widget with a link to some freeze-dried ready meals. Add boiling water to the package, seal, wait, eat. I ordered some.
Today I got out my little stove and gave one a whirl.
It took about 4 minutes to heat the water.
Tear open the bag and take out the desiccator. It ain’t a flavor pack.
Add your 2 cups of hot water.
Give it a good mix around to distribute the water evenly. Seal the bag with its ziplock. Wait about 15 minutes.
Another company has one that takes the same amount of water but takes 8 minutes.
Ready to eat! Sorry, photo didn’t turn out.
Let’s be clear about something. The Chile/Mac was not “gourmet” food. But it wasn’t awful. This is probably going to be my summary of the different meals.
The pouch provided 2 servings totaling 340 cal. The sodium was pretty high, but if you are in a situation where you are working and sweating a lot, you would need it. They will store of a long time.
The packs are pretty light at 193g (6.8 oz). You could have a few in a go bag.
I think people should make preparations for … problems. Even if you are not prepping for … events, having a few of these around could be handy.
