I was looking for some Manischewitz dried vegetable mixes that were used 20 years ago, and could only find some vegetable soup mixes from Manischewitz. These contained green pease, barley, yellow peas, lima beans and egg noodles.
The soup cooking instructions call for simmering for two (2) hours.
I soaked the mixture in water overnight in a small Rubbermaid sealed dontainer, and the peas and beans had been softened up to have the approximate taste and texture of fresh uncooked peas and beans. Soaked up a lot of water in the process.
One plan is to just consider eating them as raw veggies. Another plan is to cook them by the freezer bag and cozy method. The third plan is to just forget about this as a food source.
Has anyone had experience with this approach?
At one time, there was a vegetable mix with corn, carrots, onions and I have forgotten what else that I would carry as emergency rations. The four or six ounce package was stated to be made from a pound or two of vegetables.
