As my wife will verify, I do a lot of things in the kitchen, but baking is not normally one of them. Well yesterday, I felt like baking some fresh bread so I decided to make some bannock. Learning how to make bannock has been on my list of things to learn for a while.
Bannock seems to have originated in Scotland, but it became very popular in the wilds of Canada and the American West. It is easy to make and does not even require a pan to cook it. Kids would enjoy learning how to make Bannock bread, as it can be cooked directly on the hot coals.…Read More...
One question that seems to come up regularly is how to cook from scratch with only very basic ingredients. This is a hard one particularly for younger preppers. Home making classes aren’t taught in school anymore and too many people rely on frozen or other types of prepared meals. Over the years, I have posted quite a bit of information on the LDS (Mormon) Dry Pack Centers. They have very reasonable prices and are open to everybody, but the choices are somewhat limited. So here is a free LDS recipe book from Mormon Share that addresses this subject.
The book Food Storage Recipes can be downloaded for free. …Read More...
We were visiting our daughter awhile back in Utah and as always we got started talking about storage and all the wheat our families have. All of us think that with wheat we can survive an emergency because we can make different food items with wheat.
But as we got talking about different flours she told us about her sister in law and how she had been sick on and off for sometime with stomach problems. Now this person did all her cooking from scratch and all her baking. She has some wonderful bread recipes that we have shared with you.…Read More...
Since my husband did an article from the 1918 cook book, I started looking at some of the recipes. Some of course don’t sound very good, but most of them sound ok. So am going to make the Salmon Loaf. I stocked up on can salmon when it came on sale and have been itching to try a recipe and this is it. We have been trying to eat less meat but still get our daily protein so; I will let you know how it turns out.
There are many recipes that I think would work in an Dutch oven or solar oven.…Read More...
Cobbler from 30 year old dehydrated fruit. We were rotating out storage when we came across some #10 cans my husband had .We decided to check their condition. The peaches were in good condition and tasted like they had been canned yesterday. The apples slices were about 10 years old. After re-hydrating them both fruits still tasted and smelled good so I added ingredients and made a cobbler. This was taken to my husband’s mans night out and nothing came home but the remaining whip cream.
Prepare a 13X10 pan with cooking spray
- 4 cups dehydrated peaches
- 4 cups dehydrated sliced apple
- 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
- ½ cup raisins (optional)
- Add ¼ to ½ tsp.
Just wanted to let everyone know how much we appreciate all of our readers. Thank you for all your comments and suggestions. The more comments and suggestions you make, the more information we can give you. My husband loves to do research and try various preps and pass the information on to you. I love to cook. I look up different recipes in all kinds of books and then change it to my liking, or for the cooking materials we are using. With everything I have done, it’s hard to describe some of them. But am working on it, hopefully in the future I can put up more recipes for different methods of cooking.…Read More...

Making Pancakes is as American as Pizza and Burgers, right? I as I am sure many of you do, buy the bag of mix and just add water. I got thinking about my storage and what ingredients I have to make pancakes. The packaged mixes, don’t store very well. And even if they did they are more expensive. Since we may have to live off our food storage without the convenience of running to the grocery store, I found an old fashion pancake recipe. I hope you enjoy trying this recipe
