  1. This sounds like such a wonderful treat for a meal jar. Can you please clarify if you mean for us to put the Gravy dry mix in a seperate baggie in jar or is it just mixed in with all the other ingredients? I can't wait to fix this up but I want it to be right. Thank you so much, I'm so impressed with you site so many helpful things on it. Hurry with that cook book pls

  2. In My opinion you can do it either way...Just add water or add water to the gravy and pour it over

  3. We tried out this recipe and had a question/comment. Following the rehydration of product for 10 minutes in boiling water prior to cook time we still felt the carrots were not fully hydrated. Is this a typical issue or are we doing something incorrect?

  4. It's really an informative and well described post regarding rainy day food storage tips. I appreciate your topic for blogging. Thanks for sharing such a useful post.
