Dry mixes can be a great addition to your home food preservation skills
DIY dry mixes are something you may wish to consider adding to your batterie of kitchen tricks, if you haven't already. They genuinely make healthy eating quick, delicious and economical.
Now, admittedly, there's a little food snob in all of us that will at first blush will go, wait, isn't this exactly what we're trying to get away from? Processed packaged fast foods?
Take a moment, however, to rethink that. While these mixes may be "instant" at time of use, they are still completely home-made, from-scratch, whole-food ingredients preparations. You just did the work in advance, that's all, and took advantage of the time-saving aspects of "batch preparation." The only processing that happened was with your own hands, and the only packaging that happened was you storing the mixes away in your Mason jars or Tupperware.
Sometimes considered the "poor cousin" of home canning, dry mixes in fact act as a great complement to your canning (and dehydrating!) Check out some of these ideas!
