Re-hydrating Survival Food Tip #2
The Three Boiling Stages
Small Bubbles on Bottom
Stage 1. Small bubbles on the bottom. This is more of a simmer than a boil. This is common for people to use when at a campfire and the coals aren’t hot enough to reach an actual boil before a significant amount of water evaporates. You can use this to re-hydrate your food but you will have to wait more than double the time that is recommended on the package.
Medium Bubbles on Bottom Starting to Break the Surface
Stage 2. Medium bubbles on the bottom are starting to rise and break the surface. Although this is technically a boil it is not a rolling boil. This will re-hydrate your food faster than stage one but you will still have to wait longer than expected for the food to properly re-hydrate – unless you like the “crunchies.”
Stage 3. This is the money shot! You want a the water to be a furious rolling boil. This will re-hydrate your emergency survival food as quickly as possible. Once you reach this point go ahead and quickly add the freeze dried or dehydrated food, stir, and cover. This will get you and your family eating as quickly as possible.
