I am going to give you my opinion on freeze dried food. Freeze dried or (FD) you will see this when you order your food storage is a process to dehydrate the food. The freeze-dried method is first, flash frozen then a low-level heat is applied to the product inside a vacuum chamber. The finished product is a premium or superior end product. In most cases, you can usually eat the food directly out of the can. They rehydrate quickly and taste as close to their freshly picked original flavor and texture as possible. The nutrition is higher than the regular dehydrated way of preserving.
You should really try the corn, green beans and peas right out of the can. Okay the strawberries, pineapple and apples are delicious as well. Great snacks! When I teach classes I have served every freeze dried fruit or vegetable available on the market. I have made chicken salad, tacos, lasagna, chicken enchiladas, etc. with freeze dried meats. You cannot tell the difference from fresh. I really love freeze dried cheese. I have cheddar, Colby, mozzarella, and Monterey jack freeze dried cheese. They typically have a shelf life of 20 years unopened and TWO years opened!!! I never throw out moldy cheese anymore. Every food storage company has a different shelf life. The temperature of the area we store our food if it’s higher than 60-70 degrees will definitely shorten the shelf life as well.
Yes, you might think freeze dried is more expensive. I like buying freeze dried for two reasons. I can cook every day with it and I save money because I am not going to the store when I run out of something. I like the idea I can eat the fruit and vegetables as a quick snack directly out of the can. I like the fact that it cooks quicker than dehydrated. I will be showing you ways to use the freeze dried with YouTube soon as well as sharing the recipes I use every day using FD meat, veggies and fruits.
