18 years old marmelade...

Post by housil » Fri Oct 05, 2007 5:39 pm

After we run out of black current marmelade yesterday, I promised my wife I´ll take care of it.

I offered her one out of my secret EPa stock:

Not to rub it in, C-rats, but that EPa bread is *really* good - thick, grainy, slight molasses taste:

Yum!

Sorry for not describing... :oops:

As it was just 9 years old or better "young", as delicious as usually!
The 4 meat roulettes were juicy, not to hot but well spicy. The rice was well soft, not this hard like in the MRE´s (just my opinion). The vegetables (corn, beans, carrots, peas) still there and tasteable - not "boild-to-mash" and still "al dente".

I don´t like hot spiced meals at all, so some of the MRE entree´s are to hot for me. (Causing me heart burn all night long)
That´s why I like the EPa entree´s. They are tasty, but not this hot spiced (like CCC, to much for my little, smooth tounge :lol: )
