Many times we’ve discussed food preparations and in our prepping discussions, we’ve talked about different scenarios for when we might need to have a nice stock of food on hand. There doesn’t have to be a “zombie apocalypse” for us to wish we had a good supply of food on hand. The recent ebola scare, though it looks like it isn’t going to be as serious as it sounded initially, could have been a disaster, especially if there was an outbreak in your area. The flu season is coming and we may end up not feeling like going out or we may not want to be out with other sick people. There could be many scenarios when we would not want to have to go out to the grocery store.
When I’ve discussed canning food, many have commented that they just don’t have room to store food and I understand that. Valley Food Storage may be a solution to those with little to no storage, or for those who have no interest in cannning food.
A couple of weeks ago, I ordered a sample from Valley Food Storage. I wasn’t sure what I would receive but was sent a package of their Pasta Primavera to try. Today I fixed it for lunch. It was delicious! Straight out of the package, I fixed myself a little bowl of it and you know we like good food and this was good! I added some sauteed, partially cooked broccoli, asparagus, carrots and mushrooms.
The sauce was delicious! Honestly, I could see myself opening a package of this and fixing it for company. It was great with the veggies and it would be great with a grilled chicken breast but what matters most is that alone, straight out of the package, with nothing added, it was delicious and would be easy to fix and quite filling.
The sealed, dried foods from Valley Foods have a 25 year shelf life – they guarantee it.
I’ve always been hesitant to buy the freeze dried foods that are supposed to last forever because what good is it to have a full pantry of food if it doesn’t taste good and you’d have to be starving before you’d eat it? I can only speak for the pasta primavera but I don’t think anyone would have a problem eating this and enjoying every bite of it.
Please check out their website.
At this time, you can order a sample and see what you think. Looks like they’ve taken down the offer for a free sample. Sorry!
