Canning to Amateur Radio
Host: Gary and Brenna “The Road Less Traveled

Join us for tonight’s outing on “The Road Less Traveled.” On this excursion we’ll continue focusing on some of the intricacies of Prepping from our perspectives with an emphasis on psychological preparedness being quite important to our overall efforts.

CanningGGsBoo will discuss pressure cookers, the canning process, the difference between water bathing and pressure canning. GaryL will expand the previous discussion on Pythagoras and Tesla by having some fun with numbers and amateur radio, how it all relates to frequency, energy, and vibration!

Ham RadioThese and more topics will be extensively treated as the trip continues from week to week as there is far too much to cover in a single hour, and much of what will be discussed is of an evolving and dynamic nature.

Stocking Up – A basic of Preparedness

Stocking Up – A basic of Preparedness
Host: Lynna “The Other Side… A Preppers Path”

StockingStocking up. Stocking up! Or Stocking Up? Punctuation changes intent for sure, are we making a statement we are doing something stocking up, or exclaiming we’ve got our stocking up! Or asking if we are stocking up? It’s a broad term and a good question which planted the seed for a short series of episodes on the Other Side of a Preppers Path. These two little words are in fact a basis for a lifestyle of preparedness. “How so you may ask?” A question the Other Side of a Preppers Path intends to answer in a series of episodes all about Stocking Up and the Preparedness Lifestyle. The Lifestyle that creates Peace, Power and ultimately Joy. Sunday December 15th we begin the trek along this path at the beginning, we will talk about how you begin and the different side roads stocking up takes.. For instance do we need to stock up? Shouldn’t we take stock first? What do we stock up on? Just a few of the broad spectrum of things “Stocking Up”encompasses. Read More→

Preserving Food Year Round!

Preserving Food Year Round!

PreservingWhy would you put that canner and dehydrator into storage? Even though winter is here you’re not through yet. You may have put that garden to bed or have just payed off the butcher for taking care of that deer and elk tag that was filled but it’s not over. Canning and dehydrating should be year round for everyone. If  you really like to save money you may already know where this is going.

Fall is the season but so is winter, spring, and summer to be canning, dehydrating and Preserving. Your local grocery store or super market knows this. Most products that you find wherever you shop are seasonal. Read More→

Canning His Garden,The Canadian Prepper!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Canning jars 2It’s harvest time folks, and for a lot of us that means canning season has begun. I’ve done plenty of blog posts about water bath canning high acid foods, so I figured it was about time to take a look at pressure canning. Pressure canning is great for putting up all the produce that is coming out of your garden, or taking advantage of all the great deals that we are seeing at farmers markets and supermarkets this time of year.

pressure cannerIf you have ever thought pressure canning was dangerous due to the possibility of food poisoning, or even having a canner blow up on you, rest assured, I’ll explain how to avoid these problems and make your preserved food safe, or at least how to tell when it’s not.

This will be a two part podcast as I first explain about the tried, true, and scientifically proven methods of canning. Then, I’ll go into some advice about avoiding a few of the mistakes I’ve made, and how to safely deviate from the approved books and start canning your own favorite recipes.

Also, with a deviation of my habit of avoiding political issues, I’ll have a few minutes to spare to talk about Canada’s role in the Syrian issue. We all have a part in this crises and I will share with you my thoughts and those of many Canadians.

ready your garden for winterFrosty nights and cold days are just around the corner and approaching us fast. As with all seasons winter is no different when it comes to preparedness and for many it can be the most important season of all. Winter is that time for many of us that have not already started to begin our efforts to button up the homestead and be ready for the shorter and colder days that lie ahead.

Join Katzcradul on The Homestead Honey Hour as she talks about wrapping up the summer gardening and canning season. She’s planting ‘greens’, lettuces, spinach and kale every week, to have a never ending supply for the dinner table until the first winter frost. She’ll also talk about crops she leaves in the ground, even after the first snowfall. She’ll also be discussing what we need to do to put our garden to bed for the winter, in order to have it in tip-top shape for next spring’s planting. ready your garden for winter

Katz will also talk about the importance of taking stock of our equipment and supplies and replenishing where necessary…and not waiting until the last minute to do it. Although we ‘put the garden to bed’ for the winter, we should not be napping! Winter is the perfect time to catch up on all those odd jobs, that we find so hard to get to during the busy part of summer. She give a list of chores we should be working on during the ‘off season’. Join Katzcradul as she leads a lively discussion on The Homestead Honey Hour.

Bexar profile 100There are many out there that are preserving their own foods or are just starting and are on their way to learning the ends and outs of long term food storage. There is a lot to learn along the way and like any other endeavor you enter into it takes a lot of research and practice to get it all down and get it right.  Processing food is a skill, that for many is handed down from generation to generation but it is also a skill that must be mastered. A mistake in re-hydrating, dehydrating, or canning food can be dangerous to those that you love as well as yourself.

canningI am always receiving questions asking about the different techniques, the right and proper tools to use as well as tips, tricks and the best methods to get the desired results in food preparation for short term and long term storage. The questions are many, varied, and without the right answers you can find yourself wasting a lot of time and money as well as putting yourself and those that you love in danger.

On this episode of Preparing for Life’s Storms I will be answering those questions. Questions like; How much water do I use? Does it need to be boiling or just hot or can I use cold water? How much dehydrated corn does it take to make a cup of corn? The list is long but without the right answers the results can be disastrous. So join us and listen in to have these and any other questions you may have answered. If you already process your own food or are just getting started this is a show you will not want to miss.

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Lobster MushroomHuckleberrys125This Friday evening on “Foraging For Life” we are going to go over some of the very tasty dishes you can make with your foraged edibles.

A few of the ingredients we’ll be using include venison, lobster mushrooms, huckleberries and morels.

Teresa75x75I was asked if I would write an article on “Prepping and Self-Reliance in Northern Idaho”. I laughed and replied, “But I can’t write!” However, truth be told, writing is one of my many passions. Mushroom hunting is another. I love being out in the great outdoors…exploring, treasure hunting, taking in the fresh air and all the beauty that abounds here in the mountainous regions of North Idaho.

House outside 2 100x100 1219121431aThis year marks the 18th winter at my current location, roughly 2400 ft. elevation, a driveway that is 8/10ths of a mile long and 13% grade in spots. Getting down the hill? No problem, getting back up the hill…this time of year there’s always a silent prayer at the base of the mountain. In the winter of 96-97 the driveway resembled the Olympic Luge Run, seriously, eight foot walls of compact snow and absolutely NO room for error. Here, being prepared is Read More→

Just hear those sleigh bells jinglin’ ring ting tinglin too!  Come on and join the girls for another episode of the Homestead Honey Hour.  The holidays are upon us and there is no better time of year to take advantage of great buys on all sorts of ingredients to stow away in your food storage than right now.  Some people may scoff at some of us who choose to store what would be considered luxury items such as chocolate chips, nut meats, brown sugar, canned pumpkin, sweet potatoes and evaporated or condensed milk.  However, these ingredients are used year round, not just at the holidays to make special treats.  Most of them are nutritious, delicious and add an important part to your food storage, not to mention the ability to avoid appetite fatigue!  So lets all talk about what to buy, the best way to buy and the best way to store some of these yummy and important items for the holidays and for everyday!

“Following this summer’s drought, the price of animal feed has soared, as have the prices for hay. In order to cope, many ranchers are selling off all, or portions of their livestock. Likely, you’ve read the reports that meat prices are going to drop as we head into winter. Get it while you can, because when the sell-off is finished, prices are anticipated to rise dramatically, as demand will exceed supply. There’s no better time to make sure you have all the supplies you need in order to can meat, and take advantage of the temporary, brief drop in meat prices. Katzcradul of  “The Homestead Honey Hour” is prepared to answer your questions and to discuss a variety of ways to preserve meat, and offer suggestions of ways to store meat, you might not have considered.

For much of the country, it’s the END of gardening and canning season. And many of us are ready for a break from the endless gardening, (watering!) harvesting, and preserving we’ve been doing these last few months. But it’s never too early to start thinking about, and planning next year’s harvest. I have a few ideas to share with you on how to better face the future challenges coming our way in regards to continuing to produce quality, healthy nutritionally sound food for our families. We are all going to have to become more efficient with, and better stewards of, our resources as the perfect storm of weather, rising food prices, and economic “stresses” loom ahead.

So join me, Renée (aka Michigansnowpony) and my co-host Katzkradul this Thursday night, October 25th on the “Homestead Honey Hour” as we talk about not only streamlining our gardens for optimal results and nutrition, but also introduce to you the idea of “rotational canning” (and dehydrating) to help fill your pantry without the stress of trying to get it ALL done every year.

Whether you garden in the ‘burbs, on a country homestead, or get your produce from the local farmers’ markets to can and preserve, tune in and together, we can help make next season even more “fruitful”!
