For Oven: (Recommended)
These are recommendations and heating my vary based on your personal preferences.
This is a great, yet loaded question. Our meal portion/serving sizes are calculated to be; 2 servings per container using the national average for calories when calculating the nutritional information. This said however, individual appetites do vary. Also you can’t blame us, for the meals are so damn tasty you couldn’t put it down factor. So let us outline how the meals should work:
The average size of our meals is between 8 – 16 ounces (per container), which when broken down by servings would be 4 – 8 ounces (2 servings) per container, so the following consumption guidelines should help:
Yes, because everything we cook/serve is prepared fresh and never sees a preservative. Your meals stay fresh for 7–10 days in the refrigerator. We do, however, have a disclaimer on salads. Due to the nature of greens, we shorten the shelf life to 3–4 days in the refrigerator.
Absolutely. You can freeze your meals, especially if you do not intend to eat them within the 7-day “best if used by” date. That said, fresh is always the best. Please remember when heating from frozen, additional time is required from the time stated above.
Fire Dept. Meals would strongly advise against freezing meals that contain uncooked greens, like salads.
Not only can you heat your meals in the oven, but this is how we typically reheat our meals! Our new packaging is oven safe. Just remove the film and cover with foil to maintain moisture. We would recommend 1o – 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. These are recommendations and heating my vary based on your personal preferences.
Our bread is so fresh, that it’s better than if you made it yourself. We have partnered with “Old Hearth Bread Company” to make all our breads. We have searched long and hard to find a company, that has the same ethical wherewithal that we believe in.
Our breads contains NO preservative or funky additives to make it last weeks. So what does that mean? This means that you need to REFRIGERATE immediately upon receiving your order, this will maintain the quality of the bread and keep it from getting the fuzzies.
