I have always struggled with my food. When I first started prepping I would just buy extra food and then forget about it. Then years later I would go to it and it had expired, I know you can still eat it but with the meat I didn’t wanna risk it so I threw a crap ton of my old food stock away.
Over the past few years because I have been doing this website I have learned so much about food storage and I am so happy I have. The funny thing is that pretty much all of the tips, advice and storage methods come from way before my time. That’s right, two or three generations ago, the people had it right.
These days America and the world have become complacent. I found a great article that goes back a hundred years and gives us some great tips on miscellaneous storage and food tips.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
