Hey Gail:
Debbies bags do work ........ to keep the veggies and fruit fresh.
Not sure if they will contain the other types of gas that you were mentioning though.... but anything might be possible. :wink:

In case they weren't mentioned ( some people write too much to read it all )
Bauly freeze dried foods are excellent and I believe they're Canadian.Many prefer freeze drying over dehydrating for flavour and quality of texture - I ate their stuff fo 4 weeks on the Wabakimi project and all of it was good.

Bauly:
-Scrambled Egg mix is pretty good

-I could take or leave the freeze dried chicken and seeing as you can get foil pack chiken in the US....I'll pass
not so much for texture, that was good, it just tasted like cardboard and it's expensive

-Peas are really good, taste and texture just like frozen peas but if you're using in a stew or gravy your own dehydrated are cheaper

-green beans are good, much like frozen

Second Wotrocks recommendation on the Grace products....like the pigeon peas

We usually take frozen steaks for the first night, frozen sausage for the next night and a chunck for peameal bacon which will last for a good 2 or 3 days. Wrap them all in tinfoil and vaccum seal them up. Sometimes we freeze a pork tenderloin to take as well.

After all the fresh meat is gonna it's pasta, rice and pre cooked bacon for meals and bannock trial mix and granola bars (fruit to go mostly) for snacking.

Have never had an issue with any of the fresh food spoiling. If it's in the spring it is not problem, in the summer we try and keep it in the shade as much as possible or if the water is cool enough keep it in there when we can.

One FYI on this: If you are advised that beer keeps cooler in the water...do NOT merely toss the cardboard case in the water, as a friend did...the glue loosens, the bottom flaps open up like B-17 bomb bay doors over Schweinfurt and dump the entire 2-4 into the lake...

Uh uh.

For some reason foil wrapped chicken just up and disappeared.

When I like something in the supermarket for canoe camping, it up and disappears. :x

My Alessi soup did that and the shrimp and crab and clams are a devil to find now. Also the prepackaged dirty rice with pork was darned good and now darned gone.

Apparently, even 25+ years later, if you are SCUBA diving in the bay, you might still find a bottle underneath a log or 1/2 buried in the silt...
