You may have noticed under the heading of blog list I have listed Shelf Reliance. This will link you to my wifes website with Shelf Reliance. The goal of Shelf reliance and ourselves is to provide people with high quality freeze dried food and reasonable prices.
We have received our first shipments of various foods that we ordered and have been trying them out for a couple of weeks now. Let me say, the fruits are disappearing very rapidly. I have had a hard time keeping my hands off the freeze dried peaches and strawberries. My wife likes the pineapple so much that she quickly finished a pantry can of 5.3 ounces. Now that might not seem like a lot but you have to consider, there is no water at all in this stuff. Those 5.3 ounces when re- hydrated would make about a whole pineapple.
We have been using in our everyday cooking, the onions and peppers. They have great flavor and aroma.
One afternoon, I made a light lunch for the two of us. I used a package of Knorr Sides, chicken flavor, and 1/4 cup of re- hydrated freeze dried chopped chicken. The first thing we both noticed was the flavor of the chicken. It was great. Then we noticed that a quarter cup was too much meat for that package of noodles. Here's the best thing, you can generally find the Knorr product on sale 10 for 10 bucks or a buck apiece. The 1/4 cup of chicken ended up costing us eight five cents. That's 85 cents. So for a buck eighty five we made a light lunch that would have feed 3 in a pinch and it fed the two of us nicely with a little left over. If we had used our noodles and some bouillon we could have got the price down a little but no so much that it would make a huge difference.
We continue to work the freeze dried food into our everyday lifestyle and use it for storage food as well. This stuff has a shelf life that can be up to 25 years and some items are longer. Please, visit her site and try a sample or two and see what you think. If you are interested you can order through her site or we can sign you up as another distributor. Think of it, you can get the food cheaper and maybe make a little money on top of it.
