Traveling and packing ingredients

  • 4

So, I am traveling this weekend and planning on making a non-authentic Chicken Thai soup dish for tomorrow night. My question is.. If I can blend some ingredients ahead or does that some how create a chemical reaction .. where if it sits too long affects the future flavors. Especially in a dish that is keen on multiple spices.

I want to pack a small container with fish sauce, lime juice (out of tamarind), peanut butter turmeric, brown sugar.

Any thoughts? Thank you!

I was thinking wet in one/ dry brown sugar and turmeric in other?
Does it matter?

  1. I'd risk it with the liquids, dry seems to be no issue.

    1. Without knowing the recipe or how you will be transporting, here is a guideline:
      One container with wet ingredients except the citrus, one with dry. Bring the lime and squeeze the juice when you get to your destination.

        I'd agree with iluvcookies; peanut butter and fish sauce in one, dry in another, and squeeze the lime when you put it all together.

          Might be sketchy with the lime. I think somebody tried to hijack an airliner with one once.....
