We take that box in our kitchen for granted every day. The idea that we can go buy a trunk full of food and keep it for a week or longer is a feat of modern technology. We are living in the best of times. That’s why there are so many people who are scared to lose that convenience. Whether you know it or not there are people all over this country, homesteaders, who are living without refrigeration. This is a feat that should not be scoffed at.
This article goes into detail on how its possible to live and thrive without the convenience. Its possible but you will have to develop a new set of skills. The author does a great job of listing the practices and processes for making this work. Could you live without refrigeration from now on? Leave your comments below.
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.
