of food storage in your home, or even the vegetables you might grow in
your survival garden — in addition to general nutrition you need to
understand how many calories that your body needs to survive and how
many calories are in your food plan.

Sick of stockpiling food that expires on you? Wish there were foods
that could last a decade or two, or even go so far as to outlive you?
Well I’m happy to say, these kinds of foods do exist. While they’re
few in number, foods that have extreme long-term expiry dates can really
help you boost your food stockpile preps. Why? You can put ‘em in the
back of your pantry and forget ‘em. Some may change taste and/or
texture, but they’ll still be completely edible when you get around to
needing them the most.
Use this list to make your food stockpile checklist and you’ll be
saving money in the long run. No more throwing out unopened cans because
they’re a year or two past expiry. These non-perishable goods will have
you covered. You’ll be able to stop worrying so much about rotating
stock, and making sure nothing has become inedible, giving you plenty
more time to work on your other preps!
Grab the list and get to the store. Though you probably have a few of these already, there’s really no harm in getting more!

Knowing how to can food is just a homesteaders daily life, this
article I found from thekitchn.com has 6 secrets that even the best
canner may not know.
There are many reasons to can your veggies and meat. Each of us will
have a different reason, my reason to can my food is to protect us in a
disaster. Not just full blown SHTF, but economic turmoil on a personal
level, like if I or my wife lose our jobs and we have no money to buy
My other reason to can is I know the food I am putting in the jars is
healthy and has no preservatives so every time I open a jar than maybe 5
years old, I know I am getting a nutrient filled whole meal " class="wp-smiley" /> Check out the secrets…

This is a touchy subject for some people but for preppers,
survivalists and homesteaders this is a great source of meat for their
diets. Roadkill has been here ever since the horse and cart and probably
been around longer than that, I wonder if the Romans used to run wild
animals over back in the day?
I live in Nebraska and I see roadkill pretty much on a daily basis. I
have thought about researching into eating roadkill because I know that
meat isn’t getting cheaper and if you know its fresh, why would’t you
want to have some free meat? even if you don’t know it’s fresh, there
are ways to determine if it’s safe to eat.
Here are some animals that are considered “safe” to eat: Badger,
hedgehog, otter, rabbit, pheasant, fox, beaver, squirrel, deer
(venison), moose, bear, raccoon, opossum, kangaroo, wallaby, possum,
rabbit, etc. Rats that are roadkill I would give a wide berth. You will
find out why in the original article. EWW.

In survival situations, food is as important as water, fire and
shelter. You should make it one of your top priorities. Some food
products last few hours, others a few days or a few weeks or a few
months. But there are some food products which can stay fresh forever
too. Survival and prepping is all about making the right choices. Here
we will share with you how to make the correct choice about the food
Honey is known for its health benefits. It can cure a lot of diseases
and can be used on wounds and injuries too. But the best thing about
honey from a prepper’s perspective is that it can stay fresh for
centuries. Sometimes it crystallizes, but if you place the honey jar in
warm water, the crystals dissolve.
Another food which is ideal for a survivalist or prepper is rice.
Rice has been found preserved in ancient Egyptians tombs. White rice is a
better option as compared to brown rice. Vanilla extract is another
food item which will stay fresh and flavorful forever. It is made from
Vanilla beans and can also be used for treating burns and wounds.

example, oats, rice, salt, etc. These basics are needed in everyone’s
home storage. Long-term food storage is cheap, and healthy and very
Having enough food for one whole year is every preppers dream. A lot
of people think that storing all that food is ridiculous and that it’s a
waste of money, but let me tell you this… that is so far away from the
truth it’s quite funny even thinking about it.
I think of food storage as my family’s insurance, if I lose my job or
we get stuck in a horrific snow storm that lasts for weeks, we have
enough food to wait out my “personal SHTF situation”

One of the more common prepper challenges is finding room for stored
food and water. Lucky you if you have a large home with a basement or
cellar – you have plenty of space at just the right temperature. But

means we are cramped for normal pantry and closet space let alone space
for our emergency food and water

I have always struggled with my food. When I first started prepping I
would just buy extra food and then forget about it. Then years later I
would go to it and it had expired, I know you can still eat it but with
the meat I didn’t wanna risk it so I threw a crap ton of my old food
Over the past few years because I have been doing this website I have
learned so much about food storage and I am so happy I have. The funny
thing is that pretty much all of the tips, advice and storage methods
come from way before my time. Thats right, two or three generations ago,
the people had it right.
These days America and the world have become complacent. Over
at southernagrarian.com they have a great article that goes back a
hundred years and gives us some great tips on food storage.

For Australian father and son team Stuart and Cedar Anderson, founders of Honeyflow, a simple idea has changed their lives forever: Twelve days into their Indiegogo fundraising campaign,
they raised more than $4.8 million and counting for Flow™, a frame
system for a beehive that enables honey to be extracted just by turning
on a tap.
The idea in question has the potential to change beekeeping, and maybe could even be a key in keeping the world’s bee population from further decline.
It’s an invention that seems sweet to the more than 9,000 people who
have contributed to the record-breaking Indiegogo campaign.
“The Flow hive is now the largest international campaign ever on
Indiegogo,” says Slava Rubin, CEO of Indiegogo. The company also set
records for the most funds raised in one day: $2.1 million.
Cedar Anderson says that a few posts to Facebook
— his friend convinced him to join the social media network only about a
month ago — got the snowball rolling. “We have a lot of friends of
family who helped us by spreading the word,” he says. His sister made
some videos and a friend built the website. “People think that we had a
huge promotional budget behind us, but we just did it all ourselves,” he
says. “Local media coverage went viral, and before we knew it, the
whole world was taking a much greater interest than we thought
easy to see why the invention has captured the world’s attention: Flow
frames are comprised of partially formed honeycombs. Once installed in
the beehive, the bees complete the honeycombs with their own wax and
begin filling the cells with honey. When the cells are full and the bees
have capped them off, a turn of a lever splits all the cells open,
allowing the honey to run out and be channeled to an external tap where
the honey is collected in jars.
What does this mean for the bees and the beekeeper? Harvesting honey is far easier and less involved than traditional methods, and is less stress on the bees as well since the process doesn’t disturb them as much.
Black Blade: Interesting idea.
