Mountain House Freeze Dried Strawberries

Preparation

The package states that there is no preparation. As you eat the fruit, your mouth will rehydrate the strawberries, restoring them to their original state.

Taste

When just placing the freeze dried strawberries in my mouth, and letting my mouth rehydrate them, I was not that entralled with the taste. So, I did some experimentation.

I placed some on ice cream and found that to be a delicious combination. The freeze dried berries complemented the ice cream very nicely. I also took a small amount of cold water and rehydrated some of the berries. Then, I ate the berries and drank the water. The berries tasted like fresh strawberries and I found them to be delicious. So, that was my preferred method of eating them.

If you were in a survival situation, where the strawberries were part of your food storage, you could add a bit of sugar to the berries and make a nice juice for them. You probably wouldn’t have sugar on a backpacking trip, where weight is an issue. Either way, this was just a suggestion, and the strawberries are great on their own.

This is a snack where each person will have their own preference on how they want to eat it. I can see why the astronauts would eat them in the freeze dried state, with water being such a premium in space.

Leftovers

Since there was just one serving in the pouch, there were no leftovers.

Bottom Line

I enjoyed the strawberries very much, although not in the manner the package outlined. Each person will eat them in the manner they desire and will find them to be delicious.
