You'll be ready for anything with a food supply that will last and be there when you need it most. Our smoked ham is freeze dried, so it can be stored long term and without needing refrigeration (lasts longer than dehydrated and traditional canned food!). Perfect for emergencies, it is already cooked, so all you need to do is soak it in water 10-15 minutes, then enjoy.
Helpful Hint: Store a can opener with your ham, so you have it when you need it.
We've tasted this ham ourselves and were pleasantly surprised by how good it tasted. It may not be quite like fresh, out-of-the-oven ham, but it will give you a sustaining meal that tastes even better when you're in a pinch. It's very easy to prepare, too. No cooking, just soak in water and drain.
Directions: 1. Remove and discard desiccants and oxygen absorbers 2. Rehydrate for 15 minutes in water 3. Remove access fluid
Once opened, they will last:
When will your freeze-dried food expire?
The manufacturer guarantees the minimum shelf life of 25 years from when the food was made. To find the manufactured date, look at the label on the can. There should be a code similar to this one below:
8034 b2 19
All you need to look at is the first set of numbers (8034) - that is the date code in Julian format. So in the example above, it was made on the 34th day of 2018, which is February 3. 25 years from this date gives you the minimum of how long it will last.
Note: Since it is a long-term storage, the shelf life will depend on the conditions under which you store the food.
Ingredients: Pork cured with water, dextrose and salt. Contains less than 2% of modified food starch, potassium acetate, potassium lactate, sodium phosphates, sodium diacetate, sodium erythorbate and sodium nitrate.
