In a survival situation, does it matter what you have for breakfast? As long as you get the day off to a great start with enough calories to have energy to do the work you need to do, it probably doesn’t. You could eat anything you have stored, but why not have a traditional breakfast?… Read more »

When it comes to food storage and preparation, one of the things I always emphasize to folks is how important it is to be familiar with your food. Far too often people amass a respectable food storage supply and then that’s it. It stops there. It reminds me of an incident that I experienced a… Read more »

Hot biscuits with butter and jam or honey on them are always a delicious addition to a meal. I remember my mother making them from scratch (no, “scratch” isn’t a product – it’s what you call making something from the actual ingredients, like flour, salt, baking powder, and water), and though she was fairly fast… Read more »

I absolutely love mashed potatoes. Don’t you? Seasoned, garlic, or with just butter, it doesn’t matter to me. Mashed potatoes is a comfort food for me, and I don’t even only have it as a side dish—sometimes, it’s the main event (especially with cheese stirred in—yum). I often make them from fresh potatoes, especially if… Read more »

Unlike those found at the supermarket, most homemade jams contain two ingredients: sugar and fruit. In essence, jams are preserved fruits.  When the fruit is in good condition, it contains acids and a natural agent known as pectin which is a natural setting agent.
