Frugal Cooking for Simple Living    

Pickle It!

So, there are some new ideas on this storage shopping list.  Some instant food, like Chef Boyardi (I know, not real food in any sense) for instant, no heat needed EMERGENCY food.  Cake and frosting, if the SHTF, you may need something familiar and comforting to keep from killing your kids.  I also recommend storing booze for this reason.  😉

Fresh fruit for jams or butters, fresh veggies to pickle or pressure can.  Try pickling the asparagus using a “dilly beans” recipe.  Next week I’ll share a few links and/ or recipes for fermented veggies.  They are THE BEST for pickling veggies without vinegar, and have more nutrition than regular pickling.

First aid supplies, you know you’re gonna need them. I recommend storing 40proof vodka for sterilizing first aid tools.  And making herbal tinctures, but I’ll deal with them at a later date.  Also home made herbal salves and creams.

Infant formula, just in case.

Pre-potted veggies, there is nothing as healthy and morally satisfying as growing your own food.

Garden tools and seed!  They’re not on the list, but they’re on sale everywhere right now, and you should learn to grow your own veggies from seed.  It’s cheaper by an order of magnitude!
