Freeze-Dried Brussel Sprouts - Halved & Roasted

 

One bulk bag contains the equivalent of 16 ounces or 1 pounds of fresh Brussel Sprouts.  Net weight of 2.75 ounces of freeze-dried Brussel Sprouts.

 

Each Resealable Mylar bag has an oxygen and moisture absorber to ensure the longest shelf life possible.

 

Directions:

To cook freeze-dried Brussels sprouts, follow these instructions:

 

1. Rehydrate the Brussels Sprouts: Place the desired amount of freeze-dried Brussels sprouts in a bowl or pot. Add enough cold water to cover the sprouts completely. Allow them to soak for about 5 to 10 minutes or until they become soft and rehydrated. Stir occasionally to ensure even rehydration.

 

2. Drain Excess Water: After the Brussels sprouts have rehydrated, drain off any excess water. You can use a strainer or colander to remove the water thoroughly.

 

3. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). This will ensure the oven is hot and ready for roasting.

 

4. Seasoning: In a bowl, toss the rehydrated Brussels sprouts with your preferred seasonings. Common choices include salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, or herbs like thyme or rosemary. You can also add a drizzle of olive oil or melted butter to enhance the flavor and promote browning.

 

5. Roasting the Brussels Sprouts: Spread the seasoned Brussels sprouts in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast for approximately 15 to 20 minutes, or until the sprouts are crispy and lightly browned. Keep an eye on them to prevent burning, as cooking time may vary based on the size and thickness of the sprouts.

 

6. Optional Additional Flavor: After roasting, you can further enhance the flavor of the Brussels sprouts by tossing them with freshly squeezed lemon juice, grated Parmesan cheese, or a sprinkle of balsamic vinegar.

 

Now your freeze-dried Brussels sprouts are ready to be served as a tasty and nutritious side dish or added to salads, grain bowls, or roasted vegetable medleys. Enjoy the convenience and unique texture of freeze-dried Brussels sprouts in your cooking!

  •  When handling and storing freeze-dried foods, it's important to follow these instructions to maintain their quality and ensure food safety:

     

    1. Read Packaging Instructions: Carefully read and follow any specific instructions provided on the packaging of the freeze-dried food products. Handle uncooked freeze-dried foods the same as fresh raw foods.

     

    2. Properly Seal and Store: After opening the packaging, make sure to reseal it tightly to prevent air and moisture from entering. Properly sealed packaging helps maintain the quality and shelf life of freeze-dried foods. If the original packaging is not resealable, transfer the contents to airtight containers or resealable bags.

     

    3. Store in a Cool, Dry Place: Store freeze-dried foods in a cool, dry area away from direct sunlight, humidity, and heat sources. Exposure to these elements can compromise the quality, texture, and taste of the food. Aim for a storage temperature between 50°F (10°C) and 70°F (21°C).

     

    4. Protect from Moisture: Moisture is the enemy of freeze-dried foods as it can lead to spoilage. Keep the packaging or containers away from areas with high humidity or sources of moisture, such as sinks or steamy environments.

     

    5. Prevent Cross-Contamination: Use clean utensils or washed hands when handling freeze-dried foods to avoid cross-contamination with other ingredients or surfaces. This helps maintain the quality and safety of the freeze-dried products.

     

    6. Check for Signs of Spoilage: Before consuming or using freeze-dried foods, inspect them for any signs of spoilage. Discard the product if you notice off-odors, unusual colors, or mold growth. If the packaging is damaged or compromised, it's best to err on the side of caution and not consume the product.

     

    7. Rotate and Use Before Expiration: Freeze-dried foods have a long shelf life, but it's advisable to consume them before the expiration date mentioned on the packaging for the best quality. Practice proper first-in, first-out (FIFO) rotation to ensure older products are used before newer ones.

     

    By following these handling and storage instructions, you can maintain the quality, flavor, and nutritional value of your freeze-dried foods for an extended period, ensuring a satisfying culinary experience.
