It’s really easy to prepare food right now; you just pull it out of the fridge or the freezer and toss the food in the microwave or skillet. Easy peasy. You have electricity for keeping your food cold, gas or electricity for cooking it, a car to get you to the store and a store to drive to if you need to buy more food. No real skills necessary.But what if all of that went away?There are some skills that you need to learn now for making food for survival just in case SHTF. Your methods of preserv ...
Though many of you may be considering using solar panels or other sources of energy when you go off-grid so that you may have refrigeration and electric, that’s not going to be the norm if SHTF. For most of us, we’re not going to have refrigeration or a freezer to preserve our foods. For that reason, I think that it’s important to discuss ways to stockpile vegetables off-grid.Stockpiling Store-bought VeggiesThis is, of course, the easiest way to stockpile most vegetables but it does cost more in ...
As with plants, guns, food types, and fuel types, there is no such thing as a single tree that can be used for all your needs.While some may be “multi-purpose”, it still make sense to plan on having multiple types of trees on your homestead, or any other place where you can find room to plant and maintain them.The question is, what would you grow for food? Read the following article and you’ll find our answer.Food Bearing TreesApplesAside from producing edible fruit, apple trees also have some m ...
There’s nothing better for you than fresh, homegrown fruits, herbs, and vegetables, but not all of us have the luxury of being able to plant a traditional garden.

When you’re living small and running out of space in your home, anything you buy raises the same big question: where am I going to store it? A lot of people live in small spaces, and still buy a lot of everything, even if most of it finally goes to waste. Let’s be smart and buy what you really need and use, in or outside the kitchen. Think about how to use in multiple ways everything you buy, including food. In other words, choose versatile food as much as you opt for multipurpose items when b ...
Just about any food item that you pick up is going to have a date that says something along the lines of “sell by,” “best if used by,” or “use by.” The question is, though, how important are those dates? Well, in some instances, they’re important. In others, not so much.Baby formulas have strict dates on them – they’re about the only foods absolutely required by law to have them. Stores can’t sell them beyond that date and it’s not recommended that you use them beyond that, either.Perishable Ite ...
How self-sufficient are you? Do you grow any of your own foods, or at least cook your own meals from scratch?If not, you’re dependent on the grocery store for survival and you’re eating foods that may be killing you.And you’re definitely spending way more than you should be on food.But how can you change all of that?The following scenario probably describes many people’s day, at least part of the time:They come home from work, drop their stuff on the couch, grab a bag of chips and a soda, a ...

Unless you live in the far Northern United States (and sometimes even then), summer can be absolutely sweltering.When temperatures soar to the high eighties or above, nobody really wants to do anything that doesn’t involve a pool or river, a grill, and a cold drink. So it’s no surprise your chickens may not lay as many eggs, either.Let’s take a minute to think about what summer means. Family time, fun-in-the-sun time, picnics, and grilling. That means deviled eggs, macaroni and potato salads, cu ...
