• • • #10 cans typically hold 12 cups of food and about 11 cups of freeze dried fruits and veggies • • •
It is hard to find information about how much food is actually in a #10 can and have it be accurate enough that you can plan your meals. When filled to the brim with something like rice, the #10 cans hold 12 cups. But freeze dried food is light and not compacted, with air space between the dry pieces so you get about 11 cups (bananas) to 11.25 cups (strawberries and raspberries) in a big can like this. The cans are "full", the difference is simply air space between the fruit pieces. (To be safe, always assume there are 11 cups per #10 can of freeze dried fruits and veggies. I have found this to be accurate and a great way to calculate how much you have stored.)
Now let's talk about how yummy the food is! As I took pictures I could hardly stop myself from slipping pieces of bananas in my mouth and I literally had to stop my 9 year old son from grabbing handfuls of strawberries behind my back as I tried to snap a quick photo. (The bowl of strawberries was dumped straight into his mouth mere seconds after I got that picture!) The fruit is positively DELICIOUS for snacking straight from the can!
We live in Houston and personally lived through Hurricane Ike in 2008. At the time my son was 18 months old and I would have given anything - ANYTHING - to have these freeze dried fruits to have offered him. Grocery stores were picked clean the day before the storm. Some of the grocery stores flooded and most of them had damage to roofs, glass doors and building structures from being hit by flung tree branches, fence pieces and debris. We went 12 days without electricity in our home. Grocery stores were without power for the first 5 or 6 days and stayed closed for about a week in our area as they had to be cleaned up before reopening. It was almost 3 weeks after the storm before stores were restocked with fresh produce beyond a few local items like tomatoes and jalapeños. Please, take the advice from someone who has lived through a natural disaster and invest in freeze dried fruits and veggies for your family. Everything in our refrigerators and freezers were ruined by day 2 without power and we still had 10 days to go. The only thing you have to rely on is what you have on your pantry shelves. That is it. These cans will keep for 25 years unopened and truly are a wise investment.
So, since I have been through a natural disaster, I have learned how to bake with freeze dried food since I still live in Houston and may have to deal with another storm in the future. These fruits did GREAT and I'm going to include the recipes I used so you can have success with them, too. It is wise to open and try the food you are storing but since this company gave several reviewers like myself a discount to test their products, this work has been done for you. You can simply store the cans of food knowing it is superior quality. (I have purchased and used Thrive brand fruits and these taste identical to theirs! In my opinion these strawberries were even better quality.)
• Easy Banana Muffins •
3 cups of freeze dried bananas, rehydrated with 3 cups water and the excess drained off (or 3 ripe bananas)
3/4 cup white cugar
1 egg, beaten
1/3 cup butter, melted (or 1/3 cup Thrive butter powder - you can bake only with this brand of butter powder)
1 and 1/2 cups flour (all purpose, whole wheat, etc. is fine)
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 375°. Mash the rehydrated and drained bananas with the sugar, egg and melted butter. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and spoon into 15 paper lined baking cups. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until beginning to turn golden on top and a toothpick comes out clean. Cool slightly before eating.
• Strawberry (or Raspberry) Chocolate Chip Muffins •
--> This recipe also works with freeze dried blueberries or other freeze dried fruits
1/4 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup milk (a small can of evaporated milk is fine to use)
1 cup flour (up to 1.5 cups depending on humidity; batter should be a thick muffin batter)
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup freeze dried strawberries (or raspberries or other fruit) rehydrated in 1/2 cup water with the excess liquid drained off
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 400°. Cream butter and sugar. Add the egg and mix well. Add flour alternately with splashes of milk and combine until a thick batter has formed and all ingredients are incorporated. Gently fold in rehydrated fruit. Spoon into 12 paper lined baking cups, filling halfway to 3/4ths full. Bake for 20 minutes or until tops begin to turn golden.
• Tip •
The leftover powder at the bottom of each can is AWESOME for making strawberry or raspberry butter or adding to oatmeal to make your own fruit and cream flavor. If nothing else, dump the raspberry powder in your lemonade glass or the banana powder in your pancake batter. Don't let the powder go to waste, it is delicious!
Also, if you want to know about the countries of origin on the fruits, this was posted on the seller's FAQ page: "We source our Nutristore foods from some of the following countries: USA, Canada, Ecuador, Greece, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Argentina, Serbia, New Zealand, India, Poland, Mexico & Chile. [We] no longer source foods from China."
A quick word about freeze dried raspberries: These freeze dried raspberries are good but they are quite different than fresh raspberries. All freeze dried raspberries are small, firm, fairly sweet-tart and they are half seeds. It's a different experience than eating fresh raspberries. (The same is true of blackberries.) These fruits are best used for baking. I did use the freeze dried raspberries to make a batch of raspberry chocolate chip muffins and they were delicious! My 9 year old only ate one freeze dried raspberry and preferred to snack on the strawberries. I enjoyed a small handful of the raspberries but prefer the strawberries and bananas myself. When I first purchased freeze dried fruits I was surprised by how seedy the raspberries and blackberries were so I had to adjust my expectations. They won't be your favorite snacking fruits but they are still awesome for muffins and pancakes!
I was very fortunate to be able to purchase this sample pack of freeze dried fruit at a discount so I could try it, eat it and bake with it before writing a review. I hope that by sharing my photos and experience that you are able to make the best buying decision for your own family! Hugs from Houston!
