Space Food, Peaches, Apollo 11 (Blue)
This package contains compressed, dehydrated peaches, which were freeze-dried for ease of packaging and storage during flight. It was flown on the Apollo 11 mission in July, 1969 but not used. The food was easily reconstituted by the astronaut with a water probe which dispensed one half ounce of cold water, each time the trigger button was pressed.
