I'll admit I have become a little obsessed with food storage this year, but it has been really good for me to learn more about couponing to make it possible to buy the extra food for our storage while staying within my regular grocery budget. We also researched a lot of plants in order to maximize our yard and growing space. This year our garden will consist of
green & red peppers
tomatoes (cherry, roma, brandywine)
Not too shabby for a small neighborhood lot, but there will still be a lot of produce items that I will purchase from the Amish or local farmers this year. The strawberries are blooming, so it will only be a few weeks and I can share with y'all my preservation methods and some yummy recipes! I'm so excited!
Food storag sounds pretty self-explanatory, but it is actually rather complicated. The goal here is to establish a 1-year food supply for my family so that we will be prepared in case of emergency. On this page, you will find directions, tips, and tricks for different food storage methods including canning, freezing, and dehydrating foods (with recipes for all categories). I have also included links to other websites that I reference to help you get all the information you need to create your food storage. Ya never know when you might need it!
In getting ready for food storage adventures this year, I have been doing a lot of research to bring some new great products into my home to make life a little easier. Some of the things on my list are a vacuum sealer, grain mill, soy milk maker, larger pressure cooker, and containers. There are so many sites out there that are dedicated to food storage, but which information is correct? I will keep you posted on all the items I find to make my food storage quest a little easier, and hopefully yours too!
