I'm active duty military and my mom...God Bless her...has tried several times to make homemade biscuits and send them to me in a care package along with homemade tomato gravy.I've told her to stop trying to send the biscuits but she continues to try sending them. She always cans the gravy in a mason jar and it always makes it just fine. The biscuits, however, are another story all together. It takes anywhere from 1 to 2 weeks for a package to get to me here in Afghanistan. Usually it is taking close to 2 weeks. Every time I've deployed she has tried sending these things and every time the tomato gravy makes it but the biscuits are always molded whenever they get to me. I hate her taking the time to make the biscuits (buttermilk biscuits) and then they have to be thrown away because they are molded. I'm wondering if I purchased her a vacuum packer would this help her cause? If so, how would be the best way to vacuum pack the biscuits and mail them? If the vacuum packer will not work does anyone have any ideas that will help me to help my mom.
Thanks for your help in advanced....
