For emergencies, preparing for hyperinflation and rising food costs or simply when there is little time to fix a meal, meals in a jar have a lot to offer.
These meals in a jar by Chef Tess have a shelf life of 7 – 10 years using dehydrated and freeze dried ingredients. Just add water and heat. A one quart Mason jar will feed a family of four. Many more recipes can be found on Youtube and other places. Just search for “meals in a jar“.
