How to Cook With a Thermos & a Few Recipes

I never knew you could cook with a thermos. I found a great thermos cooking website that shows us how and gives us some great recipes. This information could be a great survival tool and a great frugal way to cook. I think this would be a great way to cook if you were camping and definitely a great backup way to cook if SHTF.

It’s Efficient – A thermos is the most fuel-efficient way to cook. Period. It’s Easy – You don’t have to stand over the stove stirring food all day. It’s Healthy – Cook healthy whole grains without the time and trouble.
