Flameless Cooking For Emergencies
Having hot food in a survival situation is not only great for your stomach but great for moral. Moral will keep you going when all else has gone to crap. There are quite a few ways to heat food and water that require a flame, but did you know there are also flameless heaters? MRE’s have used this technology for years with their specially designed MRE heaters.
Those heaters consist of a chemical in a pouch that produces heat when it is exposed to water. To use the heater, you add water to the pouch and then insert the sealed MRE and your food cooks with the heat produced by the chemical reaction.
However, the design of them limits their use almost exclusively to MRE’s. Not to fear, this technology is in full use now and works really well. Read on to see if this method of cooking could help you survive in an emergency!
