The only seitan I've had is the chicken-flavored kind in the tubs with water (looks a lot like the water-packed blocks of tofu). My omni family *adores* it, since it looks and tastes just like chicken (snort - doesn't everything?).
However, I'm only able to buy it once every three months or so, since it's a 4-hour drive one-way to the nearest Wild Oats/Whole Foods.
So my questions are:
1) Can the water-packed seitan be frozen? If not, how long is it good for refrigerated?
2) Do the seitan dry mixes have a similar texture when prepared?
3) Is there such a thing as "canned" seitan?
Thanks in advance!
