Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

Air and light are your enemy when storing dehydrated food, so that said, much as I like the idea of repurposing beer kits and pringle tins, they wont' be airtight. You could vac pack and then store in the beer tins. :) or use any airtight jar/plastic container.

Re: Which Dehydrater ... Or Even Do I Bother

Having just read your post in 'From Ration List to Meal Plan' about breakfast. Here's my 2p. ;) Portion control is a doddle with dehydrated food.

Re: Cooking - bugging in

I would +1 the gel fuel if you don't have much space. I have cooked a fry up with one as well as heating up water and heating up tins. It's not rocket assisted, but is very safe as it is in a solid state and suitable for indoor burning and can be used in any trangia type burner or in a pinch, a dol...

Re: Slug pellet ban

I'm on it, cheers. I've tried organic pest control too, didn't work for me either. We can still buy Ferric Phosphate slug control at about 5 times the price.

Re: Low-cost recipe blog
