    The tinned cake is quite nice.

    The answer to your stew is no in mylar. It can be done, but you need to pressure can the stuff.

    Pressure canning is fun

    I have arranged for Will to send me a kilo of dried whole egg. I will do a review if people want one?

    Cheers

    You pretty much have to import a pressure canner. The jars are available from Ascott, lakeland etc. Then a book (Balls Blue Book is one of the best) and away you go.

    Happy to do a pictorial if anyone wants one - not sure that canning your own meat is really Bushcraft, but it might interest someone?

    ItÂ’s not exactly Bushcraft no, but it is very interesting and the cans can be cached/taken out in the field when Bushcrafting, and may save your life, so I think it is very relevant. I for one would be very interested in seeing a canning pictorial please?

    Cheers Red

    Might be a little off topic, but a friend of mine who is a bit of a body builder uses the protein shakes mixed with various things like water, sweetner and banana and makes pancakes, brownies and all sorts. They rise and taste kinda ok...different. I imagine powdered egg is essentially protein powder as someone suggested. I bet you could do some cool stuff round the camp fire with it.

    You are right about the protein drinks, but they use a high % of egg white as its low fat.

    HI Will,

    Hopefully you got my paypal.

    I'll do a review as soon as the stuff arrives. I have a number of guys on another forum that are interested too - are you okay for more orders soon or is this a "one off"?
