SPICE STORAGE ON THE MOVE
Chances are, you have a bag set aside in case you have to move quickly. What you carry in that bag are those items you need to survive on the move. Perhaps you are carrying some freeze-dried food, or maybe you intend to hunt, fish and forage. Either way, there is no need to deprive yourself of the best chow possible under the circumstances. So pack some spices, because a good meal goes a long way toward boosting morale.
Here is how I carry my supply of spices:
• Empty pill bottles work great. They seal tightly, keep most of the light out and take up very little room. Just make sure you clean them well before filling and labeling the contents. • Resealable plastic sandwich bags have to be the best invention ever. They have so many uses—one of which is storing your random spices. Lightweight, airtight and waterproof, they are just what you need. Squeeze as much air out as possible before you seal them.
Whether you go with the pill bottles or sandwich bags, make sure you mark them. You should also put them in a larger, resealable freezer bag as extra protection. This also makes them easy to grab when you need them.
