People who lived through the Great Depression and WWII had it rough, no jobs, no money, and little food.
Scary to say it but that could happen again at any time. Even in this day and age.
This got me thinking about food and how far we would have to stretch our supplies to make it last as long as possible. The people in the Great Depression and WW2 knew how to do just that.
I found a collection of tried and tested recipes we could try now and use if you actually had to stretch your food out.
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.
