As I was doing some research today on something I was writing, a headline caught my eye and I decided to take a look at a do-it-yourself website.  I confess, I did get lost in its pages for bit, but as I ran head on into another one of those gossipy, homespun silliness theories, I was quickly brought back into reality.   Today’s ninny of a notion goes as follows, as stated by the author, while discussing how to properly render lard. She says: "bits of meat can contaminate your lard."  When I...
freeze dried fruit

Tired of feeling like you're wasting expensive freeze-dried food? I’ve heard it a hundred times. “I hate seeing all of those crumbs at the bottom of my cans. It's so much waste!” This is the standard concern that a lot of good boys and girls have who actually USE their freeze-dried products instead of just storing it in some deep, dark corner.   “Why would you use it?? It’s expensive!” you say? Oh, horsefeathers! You need to actually use what you have so that you’re completely familiar working...
raw pork chops
10 Jan 2014 by filed in Food Preparedness
This was one of my first ever recipes that I discovered as a teenager. When I started dating, I'd frequently make this recipe to impress the boys and it worked! It's still a favorite of mine today but I make it with either canned boneless pork chops. I can the pork chops raw, in a wide mouth quart mason jar, with all of the pieces cut as large as I can keep them and still get them to fit into the jar. I just stack the pork chops on top of each other and separate each one with a piece of...

  Breaking News! More dramatic changes for LDS Canneries nationwide!   As you may recall, earlier this year I broke the news  initially about the big changes that were made by the LDS Church amongst their Canneries (aka Home Storage Centers). If you aren't aware, these facilities have been an excellent way for members of the LDS Church, as well as non-members, to obtain premiumn quality food at rock bottom prices. Well, unfortunately, I’ve got even more breaking news to share with you today in...

by J.C. Martin, Guest Contributor Preparedness Pro Notes:  Firearms and other weapons aren’t just to ensure safety and security. They are also necessary to provide food for the table. Additionally, this is sound advice for every person who's trying to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle. While his suggestion is budget friendly, in my opinion it's sound advice regardless of your budget. My friend, J.C. Martin, has written this nice article for us that sheds some light on a firearm option that...

It's been a while since I've shared some quick tips on video. I'm finally getting around to rendering and posting some of what I recorded earlier this year. So this week I wanted to just post a couple of quick videos that will help you in your prepping efforts.

The other video is simply...

handful of seeds

By Kellene Bishop   The world is definitely getting crazy—even in our “free” nation of the U.S. The action we need to take as pursuers of self-sufficient lifestyles is to ask ourselves WHAT and HOW do we need to address this? The types of messages I’m receiving from readers increases and the craziness of it still has the ability to surprise me occasionally. The message that I’m going to share with you today is one of those. As some back story on this, I received the following message from one...
supermarkt greens
05 Jun 2013 by filed in Food Preparedness
By Kellene Bishop I’ve begun reaping the harvest of all kinds of greens from my garden and my sprouting supplies. But to me the greens are incomplete until I have the perfect dressing and other accompaniments to go with them. After discovering all of the canola oil or other hydrogenated oils and multiple forms of sugar that are making their way into the store-bought dressings, I long ago decided that I needed to just make my own. And boy am I glad I did! It never ceases to amaze me how much...
