Answers to Questions

 

Question:

How do I prepare the meals?

Answer:

Most of our meals are hot-rehydratable, and you can add boiling water directly to the bag to rehydrate!  For best results you want to use an insulated cozy or a down jacket or similar to wrap around the food.  We also have a couple of cold-rehydratable salads. These only need room-temperature water to hydrate, but they may take a little longer than the hot meals, so plan your meal time accordingly.


Question:

Can I rehydrate my food in the bag?

Answer:

Absolutely! Our bags are designed to hold your meal when you rehydrate it. You can then eat directly out of the bag or empty the rehydrated meal into a container to eat from.


Question:

What is a cozie?

Answer:

Cozies are an insulated soft container that keeps your hot meals warmer while the meal is rehydrating. This shortens the hydration time a bit and ensures that your meal s is hot when you eat it!  If you don’t have a cozie you can use a puffy coat or anything else you have that is insulating.
