    My family tried the chili today and loved it! Thanks! I can’t wait to get the other ingredients and try the other recipes. With my family of 7 (including lots of hungry boys), I am doubling the recipes and putting them in FoodSaver bags. I’m also going to try to put together some half-recipes for my Boy Scouts to take camping. I look forward to more recipes like these 😉

    And tonight, after playing in and shoveling several inches of fresh snow, we are digging into the tortilla soup. Super yum!

    On the Chicken Chili post it tells you that you could get 15 jars out of the shopping list. I’ve been thinking about doing these for girls night! Do the recipes in the book do the same?

    • Jodi and Julie

      They don’t outline it so specifically, but you can count on there being about 11-12 cups in a #10 can and 4 cups in a pantry can so it’s not too hard to calculate it out. It just ends up with extra product of some items but you can use the product for other things but it makes the price per jar kind of inaccurate. So we opted to keep it simple in the book. Hope that makes sense.

      Versus eating out, yes! Versus cooking something from scratch using fresh equivalents probably not as cost effective. Each meal can be between $8-12 but you can also lower the meat amounts and up the other items to make it cheaper. They are really flexible that way!

      Probably 3-5 years if you use an oxygen absorber or vacuum seal them. It’s not an exact science. But all the items were initially freeze-dried or dehydrated so have pretty good shelf lives to begin with.
