As we usher in a new age of natural disaster, we are quickly coming to realize that food access could change drastically.
This year’s corn crop is so vastly set back that the companies that create the tin cans to package corn for retail are feeling the hurt. The product is just not there to be had!
This is a problem that is not going away. It’s a problem that we, as Americans, are going to have to understand and take control of. You see, food is going to be your problem in the near future. It won’t be the problem of the farmer.
Farmland is being sold in the thousands of acres and being bought up to do anything but grow food on. Its a terrifying reality with the population of the world at its highest and most successful.
Now is the time to learn how to preserve food.
Food Storage is Not Enough
You may think that storing food to the roof is a good idea. You are 100% right! Store dried foods and store them for the long term. There is no reason not to. You just have to understand that at some point that food could run out.
Once it does you are going to have to grow and raise your own. You are also going to have to preserve that food to make it through winter and most of the spring.
Canning, Drying, Salting and Smoking
Do not settle for learning just one method of preservation. No way! Instead, learn all the methods. You see, there are things you can do on a weekly basis that will put things like protein and vegetables on your shelves for the winter.
From canning peaches, to making jerky you can employ a whole host of techniques in the name of preservation and its important that you do.
