I am a fan of freeze drying but must admit for the time expenditure and cost of the machine, I have put my attention to the meats and eggs because they are the most valuable protein source in a situation where you might need them.

I started doing this about a year ago. The time and maintenance of the machine that is required is significant but seems worth the effort. I don't bother doing ice-cream or things that I can either can or dehydrate. Freeze drying is by far the best option for REALLY long term storage (they say 25 years...and I hope I HAVE 25 years LEFT!)

Your believing it is not required for it to be true. TMM
I'd rather have it and not need it, than need it and NOT have it!

Do you have a freeze drying machine? Those things are super cool. I wish they weren't so expensive and I would have one.

Somethings like fruit are just amazing when freeze dried. Much better than a dehydrator.
