Ramblings on food storage...

Hopefully you are storing up preps in the event of one day, that the grocery store shelves are empty...

Katrina was a disaster that PROVED that you have to fend for your self when soceity breaks down...

Having your own food storage/prep items when the ballon goes up, means you will not be part of the masses scrambling to fight for the last loaf of bread. A loaf of bread doesn't last forever either...

Give a man a loaf of bread and he will eat for a day... Teach a man to make his own bread and he will hunger no more! I don't like hunger so I learn the things I need to do, to keep my family and I fed!

Lets look @ what it takes to make bread WTSHTF...

First of all you need wheat. A lot of it, if you want a lot of bread. Wheat stores well so it makes it handy to keep on hand. To store it use 5 gallon buckets, mylar bags, and O2 absorbers.

You will also need a recipe and an ingredients list, those other ingredients you will also want to store in bulk.

To turn wheat into flour, you will need a grain mill. An electric one is nice, but a hand operated one is better for when the power fails... I prefer both...

Once you have followed your recipe, you need to bake it... If the lights are out and the oven don't work, you will need another source to bake it. We like this offering from Walmart: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=7857646

There are tons of other things you need to store besides the ingredients to make bread, but making your own bread makes alot of food more enjoyable... Without bread, a PB&J sandwich is just a mess!!!

Another thing, don't wait until the SHTF until you begin to make your bread, do it NOW!!! There is nothing better than HOMEMADE bread... Nice knowing you are only eating the stuff you put in the bread and not all that other junk that keeps it "FRESHER".

IOW store the foods you eat everyday and you will NEVER have to throw out good food gone bad...

There is alot of stuff you need to bake your own bread... acquire it now, learn how to use it and incorporate it, into your daily food routine!!!

Same goes for any food or prep item!
