Food Storage

We prefer only Organic Storage Buckets.

When its Organic, no need for panic. However, this particular market does not offer much to accomodate the financial needs of many. Please feel free to research for yourself. Yet, this is the closest we could find to somewhat natural food storage.

Question: How long should I store for?

Answer: A Minimum of 3 1/2 years for you and your family.

A Freeze-Dryer

Dehydrated vs. Freeze Dried Foods

Dehydration simply means, the process of removing water from a substance or a compound. This is something you can do right in your own home with extra food from your garden. Dehydrators come in a variety of sizes for a variety of prices.

Dehydrated foods have a ‘typical’ shelf life of about six months to a year. This is usually the time frame given to those who dehydrate at home. However, shelf life depends on different factors. It depends on what type of containers your food is being stored in, what temperature are they encountering and what percentage of the water has been removed from the food.

One way to use excess garden bounty is in soup. The hot broth in your soup will rehydrate your veggies. It’s delicious to use dehydrated potatoes, green beans and squash in your soup! And after they’ve been simmering in soup for awhile, you can’t hardly tell the difference from ‘fresh’. Dehydrated tomatoes make a very delicious tomato sauce to be used with pasta. Adding your spices and seasonings to your dehydrated foods will make delicious meals for you and your family.

Now let’s talk a little bit about freeze dried foods. Freeze drying is a dehydration process as well. The foods are cooked, processed and then they are frozen. During the freezing process, the surrounding air pressure is reduced (vacuum chamber) to allow the frozen water in the meal to go from a ‘solid phase to a gas phase’ to remove even more moisture. Freeze drying removes more water than dehydrating, so it lengthens a food’s shelf life. Many vendors of freeze dried foods claim the shelf life is 25 years.

Just a little time in hot water to heat and rehydrate them and you get a tasty meal. These freeze dried meals are already seasoned, cooked and mixed together to make a delicious and nutritious meal.

So, both types of food have a decent shelf life, about a year for homemade dehydrated and up to 25 years for the freeze dried if packaged well and sealed. The freeze dried variety is obviously the best choice for long term storage between the two. Both are very light weight to store or carry. I would say the freeze dried takes up less space in general for your storage. The advantage of dehydration is that you can do it yourself and preserve your own garden bounty, but freeze dried requires special and expensive professional equipment.
