Our family's food storage consists of freeze dried, dehydrated, canned, and frozen foods — all varieties. It gives me peace of mind to look at the rows of cans and buckets and know they're there if and when we need them.
But over the years of collecting the food, I have not used any of it (except the canned and frozen) in my daily menus. It occurred to me that I just might not know how to use this stored food. I don't even know if it tastes good. Yes, I have tasted some of it at an emergency preparedness expo. The food I tasted was very good.
But, looking at the various recipes that I use daily or weekly, I began to wonder if I could substitute some (or all) of the ingredients using just my storage food. After all, if the time comes when we REALLY need to rely on just that food, would I know what to do with it?
So the idea of a Food Storage Recipe Club was "born". This is the place for those who want or need to learn how to use food storage in daily menus.
As you know, cooking with food storage most likely means cooking from scratch. Some might panic at the thought of scratch cooking, but believe me, using freeze dried and dehydrated foods makes it SO much easier. For starters, there is much less preparation:
All that is done for you, right out of the can!
So I'll be new posting recipes on a pretty regular basis (I'll notify you when new ones are posted). We're going to share recipes and, hopefully, discuss what ingredients work best and what may not work at all.
Join us today and let's learn together! We'll be the best prepper cooks around, but most of all, our families will be well fed and healthy — no matter what crisis comes along.
I’d love to hear what you have to say in the comments.
