I bought Powdered Eggs this AM at the Owen Sound Bulk Barn. $ 16.10 a KG.
Clerk said they have added them to their line for the summer to test how well they sell.
I had scrambled eggs for lunch. Not as good as fresh but still very good.
Finally a local supplier. :clap:
The freeze dried strawberry looked interesting.
Stay safe

Its almost strawberry time. Eschew the processed ones and dehydrate your own fresh picked. Slice, do not add sugar before dehydrating. The rehydrate in an instant.

Yep, I agree. I like eating them dry as a snack on the water, or add them to oatmeal or pancakes for breakfast. Buy them cheap in season... eat them all summer on canoe trips. Anyone else buying Mangos while they are cheap now too? Those too are awesome dehydrated.

How do I slice mangoes for dehydration without making a BIG mess? I am just buying the commercially dried ones..I love them.

Pineapple too but do not overdry it.

I don't spend too much time trying to make pretty slices, but I usually take a sharp potato peeler and remove the skin. Then I slice parallel to the flat side of the pit. I can cut some thin relatively wide slices with a sharp knife. Then I cut off as much of the meat as I can from the pit. Seems some mangos cut off the seed pretty clean and others are a bit messier. I like the dried mango, but most of it has pineapple juice and water added. Not a huge issue, but I personally like straight dehydrated mango myself. It gives an awesome kick when you are late in the afternoon and still have some work to get to the next site before dark.

Speaking of dehydrated eggs, mangoes and such :roll: , my wife makes very delicious 'fruit rollups". She mashes or purees a variety of mixed fruit and spreads them out on the plastic fruit thingey, or parchment paper. We pack them as readily reachable snacks. Just the thing for a quick boost of energy before tackling the next port!!

Yes, I guess so. :o

Ok, so I've been guilty of the "if you are at the end of the road, and the lake is stopping you from driving further, then you missed it" sort of thing. :oops:

Back to the powdered eggs topic...

Does this mean that all Bulk Barn franchises will carry these this summer?
If so, I'd like to give them a try...

I checked with the OS owner. He said all the Bulk Barn stores should be carrying Powdered Eggs.
Barbara: Save this topic to show how fast one gets highjacked.
I once tried to dehydrate booze (no kick) but local grown closet weed is better. Or so I'm told. :tsk:

I was in the Guelph Bulk Barn store on Stone road today and they had dried powdered eggs in stock. I don't need any right now , as I am still working on a 1 gallon can from Walton Feed Mills. But it is good to see that dried eggs are available in Canada....again.

If we were smart and organized, we would try to get one of these retailers to bring Walton Feed Mill products into Canada for resale. Even if it was only for a few stores in the major cities, it would be helpful.
