Preparing Stored Food 101
Grinding grain and soaking beans for emergency food storage is fun, right?
Not so much. We’ve done it and we’ve learned that on the occasions that we need to use our food insurance it’s because we’ve got better things to do, whether it’s hitting the trail at first light or keeping the household warm, safe and occupied while we wait for the electricity to come back on.
There are two species of Wise freeze dried food: for household use, just empty the contents of the packet into boiling water and wait 12 minutes. For outdoor use, pour one cup of hot water right into the packet.
In an emergency, you can use cold water – it will take just a bit longer to reconstitute – but our dehydrated food is created with so much robust flavor that you can enjoy them at any temperature. We take out the water, not the flavor.
