“If ye are prepared, ye need not fear.”
My religious leaders have counseled us to put away a supply of food and some financial savings for whatever challenges life may bring. I am pretty certain that my area of the country will never see hurricanes or tornadoes, and will likely never have a major flood or other natural disaster, but there is always the possibility that my husband’s work situation may change, that unexpected medical expenses could arise, or any number of reasons to heed this practical and prophetic advice. So, my family proceeds (with practicality, not paranoia) with planning for whatever the future will bring. However, I have one criterion for my food storage: “I will not store anything I do not know how to prepare, or that I know my family will not eat.”
I hope that allaboutfoodstorage.com will provide useful information for building practical food storage for families. It will include recipes and tips for canning and storing food, as well as great shopping advice for building food storage on a budget. Hopefully, it will also become a great forum for sharing tried-and-true ideas from families on these topics.
