Wise food storage Dry Food
Dry food for dinner? Why not.
Food rations are nothing new, Throughout our nation’s history, our troops have had many different kinds of meals. From the large bulky rations of the civil war to the new MREs our soldiers currently use today, the food has evolved.
Wise food storage has come up with many different options for the general public. Their emergency kits contain supplies that can last a week a year or up to 25 years, and they sell them in groups of a 72 hour supply to a 12 month food supply.
Now their are many scenarios where you may need a ready supply of food, but not an ample amount of room for storage, for example, a natural disaster, living within an unstable government, heck if you want to go camping, or if you just live in detroit.
So Lets cook up this delicious looking powdered food like substance .
Most powdered food based products require water for proper preparation. This product is no different, and will require 4 cups of water. Following the instructions of removing the oxygen absorber, boiling, cooking and cooling, we shall get busy eating. (in an emergency situation water may be hard to find, plan accordingly)
In our test kitchen we used an old camping stove my father in-law gave me to heat the water. After catching the test kitchen on fire we moved to making this product on the stove top. Using the allotted time, and following the directions, we removed the product and sat down ready to eat our meal.
The first thing we noticed was the aroma, and it smelled wonderful. This is a good thing, because it looked horrible. After I mixed it up a bit it seemed to look like food again, and began to thicken up from a soup to a stew. The taste, it was not bad, don’t get me wrong it was not great but it was not bad. There were 3 flavors that stuck out while I was eating this. Starch, if starch is a flavor. Salt. And finally Chicken Pot Pie.
The product could had used about 5 more minutes over the fire, because it seemed a bit undercooked… as far as pre-cooked powder can be undone.
Would I use Wise’s Dry Food again? Yes. But didn’t you say it was horrible? No. I said it was not great. But as far as any of the scenarios I mentioned before, fresh food would be hard to find, or just impracticable to carry. Wise creates a great product that can feed many people contained in a small package and had succeeded in producing a product that will help you and your family hold out for a day, two days or twenty five years.
