Quick break from the PSK contest to give a thumbs up for the 6 Grain Pancake Mix from THRIVE foods. My wife and son love pancakes, so we bought this mix for them--it's simple, add water and you're ready to go. I noticed a recipe for waffles--more my style--and yesterday was my night for cooking, so I cracked open a #10 can and made some up. I went in with low expectations--the usual "it's food storage, how good can it be?"--and was literally blown away with how good the waffles were. Crisp, great flavor...really amazing. Family gobbled 'em down, loved 'em and amazed that they came from a food storage mix. My 3-year old, incredibly picky son had 2, without syrup!
Here's what they looked like, with a bit o' homemade syrup, fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Pretty darn good.
I did have to play with the recipe a bit - added an extra 3/4 cup of the mix; the can recipe was too runny. You'll need to keep your waffle iron well oiled, too - they were a bit sticky.
Anyways, we were blown away by this stuff - really good. Next time, I think we're going to do bananas and pecans...should be delicious. We'll be adding a case or two to the pantry soon...
