You cannot grow food in the snow and you cannot make fresh meat last forever without refrigeration. These are the two best arguments to offer someone who doesn’t think that food perseveration is important. You have to be realistic about what you will be capable of when the super market is gone and the late winter months rear their ugly heads. What if we have lost all power and no longer have refrigeration? You should be practicing perseveration, as we speak. Things like canning should be part of your gardening and harvesting process.
This is a great little article about 9 methods for food preservation. These are all very important and you must take the time to get to know them. Don’t lean on preservations you have never tried in times of crises. I can guarantee you will have a nightmare on your hands.
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.
