Tis’ the season and all that! The Fall has always been a time of apples and cinnamon, in my house anyway. There are many different ways that you can make a simple cinnamon apple bread.
There are probably 1,000 cinnamon apple bread recipes out there!
Do you pick apples in the Fall? Do you buy them by the bushel?
Sure you can eat them raw, dip them in caramel, you can even bake them! How much apple sauce can you can? That is completely up to you.
Apples are also a great fruit to bake with. They are strong and hold up to the heat of baking.
The French call the apple ‘pomme’. Which is interesting when you find out what they call potatoes, ‘pomme de terre’ or apple of the earth.
Cinnamon Apple Bread
A warm slice of cinnamon apple bread is a real treasure. Its a truly seasonal expression of baking skills and ingredients at their peak.
Baking is a skill that many people in the prepper and survival world do not appreciate. However, many people have decided to start storing wheat. That is an interesting disconnect. Store the wheat but don’t come to master it.
This is one recipe that you can use to practice your own baking skills.
We should all consider baking and cooking off the grid. There could come a time when that electric stove and oven are no longer something you can use.
You can build your own off-grid oven without much fuss.
Prepping is all about lifestyle. You are slowly but surely changing your lifestyle so you can be ready to weather the storm that could be on the horizon.
Each day it seems like things are getting worse and worse. All around the world trouble is brewing.
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.
