Root cellars! Knowing you can feed your family!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Root Cellars

As preppers, we spend a great amount of time learning how to store food. Each method has it’s pitfalls though; canning requires a lot of time over the stove and dehydrating can be a long process that requires a good deal of electricity. Solar dehydrating is barely an option for us in Canada as humidity levels are high and temperatures are low in the fall when the most produce is ready. Sure, there’s always the freeze dried option, but that can get expensive. Read More→

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.

I am liberty 125We are talking home brew on I Am Liberty tonight. One of my dearest friends Mike D will join us to talk a little past, present and future of brewing at home. We will also touch on just how simple a process it could be come tough times. Mike is something of a home brew scientist experimenting with various flavor combinations and alcohol contents. It truly is his passion and the reason I have asked him to join us tonight on I Am Liberty.
Also tonight, the U.S government is the largest land owning entity in the world. No surprise. Our plan to strengthen the community and build a better future and more sustainable future for our kids may just be the answer to getting some of that land back into public hands.  This is an interesting idea that cropped up in my mind staring off into the desolate waste areas downtown.
Briefly, We will touch on a bean deal that you simply have to capitalize on for your home food storage. If you are purchasing superpails from any number of dealers you will want to listen to this segment. You could be getting taken to the cleaners. No one wants. Come chat or call in there is much to talk about!

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.

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→

Knowing how to store fats effectively!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

There’s hardly a prepper around who doesn’t know how to store beans, rice, oatmeal, salt, and other long term storage essentials, but there’s one food group that can be problematic to store, and often leaves us scratching our head.  Its fats!  Knowing how to store fats effectively is absolutely essential to our long-term plan. How can we store fat, a food that has a relatively short shelf life, so that it tastes good, and is safe to eat years after we place it on the shelf in our long-term food storage?  Join Katzcradul on “The Homestead Honey Hour” as she reveals some strategies for selecting and storing fats long-term.  Some of her ideas are unconventional, but have proven effective for her family.

This Friday on “Foraging For Life” we are going to discuss some of the safety issues surrounding foraging for wild edibles, and the reality concerning the  risks and dangers involved that are created by not only mother nature, but yes, our own government and chem trails. I’ll be leading the first part of the show with this very important topic and then we will begin our journey into learning about some of the more plentiful and easily identifiable wild edibles that are common to most any area. I’ll be discussing the background of these items as well as some of the preservation methods that can be used with each. Have your pen and paper ready! Come join the fun and bring your sense of adventure along for the ride.

Foraging For Life!

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Introduction to Foraging for Life.

This first airing of “Foraging for Life” will cover how to identify what region you live in and what types of foraging is available. Where to find identification materials that are suited to your lifestyle and why that is important. Learning the seasons of different edibles and looking for places to “treasure hunt” within your area. Being safe while gathering and foraging etiquette.

We hear it all around us, “Times are tough, prices are outrageous, everything is going up except my wages…” Would you like to learn how to gather food from the wild for free? Have you ever asked yourself, ” If I got lost in the deep woods without provisions, how would I survive?”
The senses can be trained to pick up on things that most walk past. Foraging, gathering, gleaning; whatever you care to call it, can be a life saving skill. I sometimes refer to it as treasure hunting! I have at times set out to find a particular food, weather it be berries or fungi, and came home with wild medicinal herbs, pine pitch or cones. I’m amazed at the vast array and abundance that our planet provides for us naturally…we just have to learn to read her labels of identification.
Wouldn’t you love to know how to preserve for later use that which you have just gleaned from nature? I have lots of wonderful tips and procedures, recipes and tricks of the trade to help you find a wealth of useful skills to keep your treasures stable for later use.
I invite you to join me in Foraging For Life to discuss and share the skills and knowledge of gathering wild edibles. Not only will we expand our ability to identify and use that which nature supplies, but we will also strengthen our sense of self-reliance by shedding some light on the practice of foraging. I gladly welcome any of your experiences and knowledge, please feel free to come check out the show and share them with me. Hope to see you there!

“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”!

This week on The Homestead Honey Hour, Noreen (Atticus9799 on YouTube) was your Honey Hostess!  The topic of the evening was, “Now that I have all this food storage, what do I do with it?”
We may all agree that having a food storage is an important step in our security and feeding our family in the event of an emergency as well as a hedge against inflation, however, some people take the time to store food, but never rotate it, use it or learn to use the long term items that they have squirreled away for a rainy day.
Let’s all explore how we can use our food storage, reap the benefits of all our hard work, nourish ourselves with our garden harvests, and learn that long term food storage items such as dehydrated or freeze dried vegetables and meats are more than just nice shelf decorations!  We need to use them in our every day meal plans and learn what we enjoy, what we don’t and how we can use them to the best of our ability in the event we really need them, because the time to learn how to use what we have stored in before we really need it!
Listen to this show in player below from Thursday evening, July 26th for what was a fun filled hour of learning and sharing.
