So back to user friendly foods. Thanks Jocelyn for bringing it to my attention that most people don't think like I do. I know a few who do, and you know who you are, that's why we work well together. For example, I was asking a friend if she would share something made from beans for the preparedness fair coming up in October. Right there, she whipped out her phone and pinterest, and discovered you can make yummy smoothies using blended up white beans! Guess what we get to try at the preparedness fair?
I have made home made soups, stews, and meats canned in jars for quick meals. Seriously if my family went into my storage room and looked at buckets, bags or bins, they would starve before they figured out what to do with it all. When these things are ready made on the shelf, they beat any canned soups or stews hands down, and the nutritional value is by far better, with less preservatives and additives. Again, a bottle of soup for well under $1 to make will be over $3 again on the shelf. Groceries are not cheap, but home made things sure can be.
I have dried soups, rices, meals, and mixes in jars and large containers, with the recipes taped on the
User friendly foods take a little time to prepare, but save a ton of money, and use up your long term food storage. I can't express enough, how important it is for us to learn to use our food storage and learn to make things for ourselves. I am pretty confident that when the time comes for my family to live off our life sustaining foods, we will be able to do okay. Our meals won't change too much, and in fact it might be fun to see what else we can create.
Keep posted because I am going to do a series on User Friendly Foods, using Long Term Food Storage. I am working on it right now. Any thoughts? I will post recipes to share.
