I have an offer to buy some #10 cans of dehydrated foods along with a number of family members. If we place a large order the discount is 40%. I would like to take advantage of this chance to save so much!
I just don't know what to order! What do you use the most of? I am considering a number of vegetables and stew base, apple slices, corn for milling, whole eggs, powdered milk, cream soup base, onions, etc. What tastes good in your opinion?
We would like to actually use the food we are buying, not just store it in the basement for bad times.
milk, egg whites, tomatoes, any fruit but watch the sulfer...some use sulfer to keep the color and some people have a reaction to it. veggies, soup mixes, cheese product, stuff like that would interest me
If you can get potato pearls, get them. My family likes potato pearls better than potato flakes, but I would recommend them if you can't get the pearls. I also like apple slices, not only for cooking, but snacking on as well, much healthier, also banana chips. If you are a big popcorn fan, you might want some of that. This reminds me, I need to go to our church cannery and can up some of everything I have talked about, I want to get some food stored away, but I want some apple slices...yummy treats!
oh yeah, one more suggestion.......how about hot chocolate mix? Or one more......pudding mixes....if you use all my suggestions you could go broke, sorry. I do a good job spending other people's money, just ask my oldest sister
I have an old book of "Master Mixes" if anyone is interested.
Also on my powdered milk bag there was the following recipe for a cassarole sauce. It works and it tastes good!
2 C Instant Nonfat dry milk
3/4 C Cornstarch
1/4 C reduced sodium chicken or beef bouillon
1/2 Tsp. dried crused thyme
1/2 Tsp. dried crushed basil
1/4 Tsp. pepper
Combine all ingredients using a blender. Store in airtight container. Use as a replacement for canned cream soups in recipes. To substitute for 1 can of soup stir together 1/3 C. dry mix and 1 C H2O in saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened.
Yield: Equiva;emt tp 9 cans of soup
There is also a recipe for Hot Chocolate Mix. If anyone wants it let me know and I will type it out!
