Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

Default Making my own dehydrated meals for hiking/camping/overlanding

Been dehydrating fruit and veggies all week in order to make my own dehydrated meals.

One of my creations will be veggies for a soup mix. I figure with a chunk of pemmican or beef jerky and a handful of dehydrated veggies boiled up in a bush pot, I should be able to have a pretty nutritious and filling soup or stew while out in the wilderness.

I have carrots going right now. So far, we've done apples, strawberries, pineapple, sweet peppers, s, and cherries.

Still have left: green onions, garlic, corn and potatoes.

When I make my mixture, seal it up in portion sized pouches and vacuum seal them for long-term preservation.

I just wish I had the $3-$4 thousand for a freeze-drying machine. Those things are slick as hell. I mean, you can even freeze dry ice cream!

"The truly dangerous man dresses inconspicuously and is soft- spoken. He walks away from most confrontations. The only time you learn that the truly dangerous man is mad at you is a split second before you die, for he never fights. He only kills. The truly dangerous man knows that fighting is what children do and killing is what men do." - Charley Reese 1986

Good deal Sanders. That is something we are looking to add to our food storage we already have a commercial dehydrator. Homesteading family on youtube did a fair comparison between the two machines.

Pro tip: When dehydrating onions and garlic, don't do it in the house. Take it out to the garage or porch. Trust me.
