Repackaging Freeze-Dried Food

During last year’s backpack I took along a selection of Mountain House’s "one-man" meals. Open them up, pour boiling water in, stir and seal, wait 8 minutes and then . . . ummmmm, good.

The problem was the quantity: as it says on the package, "Makes 16 ounce serving." Yikes! That’s a pound of food! Too much food . . . too much for me, anyway, especially in the appetite-diminishing mountain altitude.

So I’m experimenting with opening the package up and dividing the contents in half. The main question remaining is whether a vacuum-sealing device should be used or whether I could just go with quart freezer bags.
