In this Treeline Pursuits video cast segment we discuss how to dehydrate and package fruit to take in the backcountry. We also dig into more detail on the mylar bag packaging I use for my dehydrated meals. This year I made the committment to go DIY with my meals and I’ve added some fruit to the list.
The Equipment And Supplies I Use:
- Cabela’s 80-Liter Commercial Food Dehydrator
- Products I get from www.sorbentsystems.com
- 8.5″ X 8.75″ – Silver ZipSeal Mylar Bags – These are perfect size for about 2 cups of dehydrated product. You can package your meals in them and then cook (add boiling water) in them. This is almost exactly the way that Mountain House products work. You can purchase these bags in smaller quantities, 100 bags for $50. Product Number : 085MFSOZE0875
- 10″ X 12″ – Silver ZipSeal Mylar Bags – These are the next size up and they are also good for 2-3 cups of dehydrated product. You can package your meals and then cook in them. This is the same bag as above, just a little bigger. You can purchase these bags in smaller quantities, 100 bags for $50. Product Number : 10MBIL12OZE
- 9.0″ X 13.375″ X 4.75″ – Silver ZipSeal Standup Bottom Mylar Bags – These are bigger bags that have a standup bottom. They are very nice, but a bit to big for a single serving meal package. These could be used for larger meals and certainly for a couple or small family setup. Y Product Number : FDR0475Z
Our Video Casts are raw and real, and can get a bit long. We love to dig deep into the topics we cover. So many articles and videos that you find are the typical mile-high flyovers that only seem to scratch the surface. They leave you short and wanting to know more.
We are starting to build our tribe at Treeline Pursuits. We value comments and we try to respond to all of them. We are dedicated to becoming a valuable resource for the DIY hunter and we want to play a part in your successful backcountry hunting adventures.
Please help us spread the good word. Will you consider sharing Treeline Pursuits with your fellow hunting friends and partners?
