One serving is 10-12 squares

Add ½ C of boiling water to the squares, with a fork or spoon break apart the squares and stir in the boiling water, cover and let sit for 5 minutes, stir again, add a little more water if necessary, you can also microwave to reheat and let sit until rehydrated. This takes time and patience to rehydrate fully.
