Has anyone had any experience with cooking the freeze dried meals in ziplock bags rather than the bags that come with the meals? Its been a while since I weighed them, but I'm thinking you can save about an ounce per meal if you removed them from the bags that come with the meals. The thing I'm not sure about is whether the meals will cook properly in a ziplock bag or if they need the metalic insides of the factory bags. Also, are the ziplock bags too hot to use once the water has been added? Any thoughts would be appreciated!
If you don't use the Mountain House bags, you'll probably want to use a pot. With the single meals you don't save much weight by re-packaging. With the double meal servings, you save more. Steve

The following link is a brief article on the use of food bags for sous vide. It's a little short on the science but does indicate which plastic materials are considered 'safe' for cooking.

Zip lock pack is a decent thought to keep the nourishment safe. It might be expended the following day likewise.
