Have you ever tried freeze dried food? Over the years I have tried many different brands and flavors – some good, some bad. As I continue to add long term freeze dried foods to my system I have found it very useful to try smaller pouches before spending the money on larger #10 cans. Hey – why buy foods that you and your family don’t like and will not eat?
I recently ordered several Mountain House varieties to try including Chili Mac with Beef which sounded good. I chose Mountain House as past experience showed they offered excellent quality and shelf life.
These Mountain House pouches are extremely easy to prepare requiring only water. Boil a couple cups of water, pour into the Mountain House pouch, seal back up and wait about 10 minutes – and done. The food can be eaten directly from the pouch or poured into a bowl or on a dish.
I prepared the Chili Mac with Beef as mentioned and it was so simple. After stirring real well I poured some into a bowl for the taste test. The smell lured my youngest into the room and he immediately asked if he could have some. Knowing he likes chili and macaroni – but not beans I told him it had beans. He said he would try it anyways which he did. He liked it!!
Next I gave it a shot and was really satisfied with the taste. Honesty most every freeze dried food I have ever eaten I came away knowing it was freeze dried. Not this Chili Mac with Beef. It was excellent. Freeze dried foods are known for being on the salty side and I just didn’t notice that with this. Extremely flavorful – just delicious.
Now that I have tried Mountain House Freeze Dried Chili Mac and Beef I will be adding #10 cans to my overall food storage system.
Oh, by the way – there is REAL beef in this – not TVP.
Any favorite freeze dried foods out there?
