Hi! I know I've been pre-occupied, but I have recently been in contact with Augason farms. They sent me some samples for me to try and let you know what I thought of them. I got the freeze dried chicken breast chunks (AMAZING!), Chicken Gravy mix (which is gluten free), and some buttermilk biscuit mix.
So, Sunday we decided to start sampling. I was anxious to try the freeze dried chicken breast chunks, so we made Hawaiian haystacks. We started with rice and chicken gravy and all the fixin's over the top. So, I made the chicken gravy mix (following the easy directions on the back of the label) and added the (rehydrated) freeze dried chicken (also followed exact easy instructions). The gravy was totally easy to make quite tasty. The chicken rehydrated in ONLY one minute in water and tasted like CROCK-POTTED CHICKEN! It was nice and tender - not rubbery, like I expected. Everything tasted good. I even sampled it to people who stopped by, and they agreed that it was really good. Something I will definitely want to have in my regular food storage.
And just for your information, we like to top our Hawaiian haystacks with Chinese noodles, cheese, celery, diced tomatoes, chopped olives, pineapple or mandarin oranges, coconut, peas, and whatever else we can find...
Augason Farms does food for everyday, food storage and emergencies. I'll report on the biscuit mix as soon as I sample it. (Soon.)
