For most people, the idea of preparing food while camping or hiking is not something that they actually want to do. However, food does need to be taken away when going out in the wilderness for a few days. This is also true in emergency situations, which is why so many people have begun to enjoy using MREs for their personal meal needs while in these situations. Everyone from hikers to preppers to aid workers fine them to be an invaluable tool.
But how do you prepare one, and how long does it take for them to be ready? For many on them, there is no need to cook them, they can merely be open to be eaten. On others, if they do need to be cooked, this can usually be done with a flameless ration heater which may be included in an accessory pack. This small heater will cook the food through in a matter of minutes, be ready to re-pack up for disposal. The average amount of time needed to cook with one of these is only 12 minutes, and the only thing needed for this heater to work is a small amount of water.
The amount of time that it takes to cook a Halal MRE makes it a valid option to feed people, even in life and death situations. They take up a very small amount of space in anyone’s pack, are rather light weight, and can be easily packed for anyone working in an aid organization as well.
Finally, Halal MRE are easy to clean up, coming in their own bag that can be used to put everything used in the MRE away. This makes it easy to get in and out of the wilderness or an area where aid is needed without making extra trash for anyone else to pick up.
