If you own chickens you will know that they can produce more eggs than you can eat on a daily basis. Even more so when it’s warmer out.
In the winter they lay less but you can still end up with a lot of eggs sitting around for days or weeks. The benefits of keeping chickens are numerous!
If you have neighbors you can sell them too that’s great but a lot of us can’t sell them or don’t want too. So the next logical step is to try and preserve them so they last months, not weeks.
If you don’t own chickens and you see a great deal at the store you can take advantage of that deal and buy dozen or two and store them.
You can add mineral oil or, to save space and have some variation in your egg storage, you can freeze them.
Learning how to properly freeze fresh eggs will not only give you an extra (and delicious) long-term food supply option, but it can also save you money!
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.
