A Three Part Program for Success
Food storage is a big part of my preparedness plan and since we all have a different take on how to accomplish it, I love to look at how others plan theirs and learn something new. In their new hardbound book, Food Storage Made Easy.com bloggers Jodi Moore and Julie Weiss pull together their considerable knowledge in one easy to access volume.
Years ago, when I really got serious about my plan, I purchased their pdf download and took their yearly challenge. It’s pretty famous…maybe you’ve done it too!
I’m always looking for a way to up my game when it comes to preparedness and it sure is nice to have their information in one handy book. Now they have published it in a book format for easy reference.
Jodi and Julie are famous for their checklists and I like the way the plan can be broken down into 26 baby steps that you can be taken over weeks or months.
Don’t let the term “baby steps” fool you. Whether you are new to food storage or a seasoned veteran like me, there is plenty of information to glean from them.
You really can customize these steps for any lifestyle and budget.
This is not a read from start to finish book and I actually liked that. As you work on each step you are directed to an area of the book for further reading and recipes.
For instance, as you work your way through Baby Step 6 (page 23) you are directed to purchase:
- 25 pounds of dried beans (including some white beans),
- 2 quarts of mayonnaise,
- a few extra sticks of deodorant for each family member,
- something in bulk for your 3 month supply.
Then you will also read the article on page 104 titled “All about Dried Beans” and take some time this week to practice grinding beans and begin using them as a replacement for white or creamy sauces.
How do you do that? Use the recipes!
As you practice using beans in your everyday recipes you can try these 4 food storage recipes that use bean flour as a substitute. Your family may never know unless you tell them!
- White Sauce Man N’ Cheese
- Cream of Chicken Soup
- Creamy Potato Soup
- Enchilada Pie
