With this homesteading project you will learn how to make your own sugar. This project is really easy to do and could save you money on your groceries throughout the year. Sugar would be a great bartering item to have stored too.
YES! Make your own sugar! I never knew you could do this, I am defiantly going to be making some of my own sugar from my beets this year.I knew there was a reason I needed to grow beets. I personally hate the taste of them but I guess I can grow them just for my sugar needs.
This is a great homesteading and self reliant project. Get your family involved and have a beet fest. If you grow your own beets this project will be super awesome knowing you have made sugar you can use daily from your own garden. I would be very interested to see if anyone reading this already has made sugar using this method. Let me know over on our Facebook page.

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.
