I know that there are some Freepers who buy from Honeyville Grains, so have any of you brought Honeyville Meals? [IMG]http://store.honeyvillegrain.com/images/products/display/84%20SERVING%20Grab%20and%20Go.jpg[/IMG]
They are on sale right now for $159.99 and with the present %10 coupon that would make it $144.00. That's just a bit less than $1.75 a meal!
No but I have bought grains from them.
No we thought you were bringing them! ;-)
No, I wasn't supposed to bring anything. It was stated on the invitation.
I just send salsa.
And damned fine salsas they are, too!
Thanks for the tip. Let me know when you see one for Stouffers!
I am afraid the only meal that ‘Grasshoppers’ get from me are heavily lead tainted.
My mistake! Boy its been a while since a may such a big one, but its good to see that it still doesn’t take long for the ‘long knives’ to come out. Oh well i’ll survive. ;-)
Are you stocking up for LATOC ?
No I am stocking up for Zero’s next term.
I think it is similar to the Mountain House stuff. Which, btw, is excellent even if a bit pricey.
They had the MH stuff at a local store last summer, and I tried a couple. Quite good! So I went back to buy more but it was all gone, they used the shelfspace for holloween, which was still 1 1/2 months away.
So I asked them about it and they said they consider it a seasonal item for summer because of camping, etc, and had put the remaining stock in the back.
So I bought them out! 115 bucks and they sold them to me 1/2 price and I got like 40-45 different packets, mostly entrees, but some breakfasts.
I know what U mean about feeding a family cheap, I must have easily over 100 lbs of rice, beans, egg noodles, etc stashed and tons of those dried gravy-in-a-packet deals.
But even that would get old, so it would be nice to have a really good entree once a week or so just to break the monotony.
Shipping is only $4.49 per order. I’ve ordered hundreds of pounds on a single order... shipping was $4.49.
Better get dry behind your ears first fellow Newbie...........
At your service Sir.
I bought $500 worth of freeze-dried from the Ready Store last Wednesday and they haven’t shipped my order yet.
When I first saw them on Honeyville I went to the Wise website to get information and they were giving a free sample. I signed up and the nest day the CEO of the company called me up and we discussed their food and he sent me a lasagna meal which was tasty and easy to prepare. They do require water and heat so are not for every situation, such as where MREs would be preferable, but they are good and a good value.
They forgot to invite me.
I have doubts about that article if they are willing to say “canned good should be replaced once per year”...
Properly canned goods with no dents easily have a shelf life of 3 years or more.
Depending on the food, it may or may not taste all that great. But you will still get alot of nutrition out of it and it ain’t gonna give you food poisoning.
It's always assumed you will show up.
I haven’t tried any of the meals. They are a bit pricey and high in sodium for me, so I usually pass. They look good though!
That's the 'sporting firearms' clause in the second amendment. Grilled politicos are tasty goodness for the entire family.
Thank you sir for the information I was looking for and it only took 20 post or so.
I think I will look a bit more into them before I decide, but again thank you for the information.
Hey, I figure noodles and gravy and powdered potatoes are just the basics.
If it’s got rabbit or squirrel or duck added, that’s even better!
I didn't get to this location on the carnivore scale to eat salad.
Anyone gets in my way? Stewmeat. Dredge in flour, saute with mirepoix, simmer for hours.
I'm done being polite.
The sodium levels on most of these are too high, over 1000mg per serving!
“The sodium levels on most of these are too high, over 1000mg per serving!”
WOW! I missed that, thanks for pointing it out. I think I review the what I have on making your own MRE’s that way I can have more control of such.
Sierra trading post had stainless steel dehydrators on sale for as low as $150 for a 15.5 square foot model.
I less than two weeks I dehydrated 5 pumpkins, 15 lbs. sweet potatoes, 40 lbs. of sweet corn, 10 lbs. green beans, 10 lbs, english green peas, 8 lbs. hast browns, 10 lbs. of california medley... and sealed them all in quart jars.
The trick I used was buying frozen food on sale... it’s already prepped.. If you are going to do this be sure you have dehydrator netting.
That is very interesting,I’ve been thinking about getting a dehydrator,but don’t know much about it. Do you have to process the dehydrated food after it’s dehydrated when you put it in jars like you would in canning it?
You dehydrate it, let it cool, don’t put in the jars hot or warm. I mean let it cool to room temperature. Fill your jar. Use a vacuum sealer OR put in some oxygen absorbers, either way it seals it for you. Good for 20- 30 years, if kept room temperature, out of sun, and dry.
The cooler, the longer it lasts. When keeping dehydrated foods stored, do not store touching an outside wall in your room.
BTW, when you need to use say, dehydrated corn, be careful not to pour out a lot, because when it rehydrates, it comes back to it’s orginal size. Some people when first using dehydrated foods, start putting in the dehydrated corn, say, in soup, and think it looks like they didn’t put in enough. then they end up with lots and lots of corn in their soup...
A quart jar will hold like 10 lbs of dehydrated corn...might be more than that can’t remember off the top of my head.
Of course when I said seals it for you, I mean put the cooled food in, either put oxygen absorbers in the jar, then put on the lid...and your done.
Or, put in the cooled food, put on the lid and ring and use a jar vacuum sealer. and your done.
Kart, I haven’t tried the Wise food line, but it sure is gaining in popularity. It’s popping up on more and more websites.
