Re: WiseFood Choice? Good or no Good?

i buy large quantities of beans and rice and such and separate into plastic baggies, doubled...lasts a looong time and is usable in that smaller quantity--beans need lots of water-- two times, as you need to spill out the first soaking for air quality problems..\lol.....pintos, black beans, dried, last forever, as does well kept rices...but they do need time without air to remain well kept.

Re: WiseFood Choice? Good ?

There are many ways to preserve food. Dry it, Freeze it, etc...
No one here has mentioned pickling yet. We all have vinegar for cleaning but it preserves everything from vegi's to fish and beef also.
Caviche is a great way to save any extra fish. And the fluid left over is good for hang overs. So I am told. Maybe we can get Zee to test that out for us?

Also

Add dried vegi's and some pork or chicken to Ramon noodles to make a decent soup in cold climates and on cold days at sea.

i'll vouch for beans lasting forever.

I just found some that I harvested 11 years ago.

Soaked them overnight, cooked them, and you would never know that they weren't last years crop.

It would take less and is more economical for you to try the test. Location is also a plus. Do it for your fellow sailors. Inquiring minds want to know!!

Re: WiseFood Choice ? Good ?

In re 25 year storage. There are long-life tins with nitrogen atmosphere said to be good for 15 years or more but quality varies according to product. Dry milk takes on a stronger taste as years past, especially in hot climate. I don't know about nutrients but taste gets pretty awful. One item is failsafe. It is common in Caribbean to bring out homemade wedding rum cakes, also called black cakes, for anniversaries including the 25th. I believe the secret is the occasional re-soaking with rum. Honey and well-protected wheat kernels also keep forever. Don't diss the much-reviled fruit cake. The good ones are really good, especially when soaked with rum.

Re: WiseFood Choice ? Good ?

re hangover cure: Although I no longer drink I do have a fo-real hangover cure fer any who're interested. N-Acetyl Cysteine before and after drinking protects the liver from damage and amazingly enough, no hangover. Go ahead, google it.

Have you ever tried bread crumbs soaked in rum?

- take two crumbs of bread,
- soak them for about 5 minutes in a bottle of rum,
- drink the rum ...

Delicious - you can hardly taste the bread!

;-)
