Hey, I ran across these on YouTube. There's a whole series on 18th Century cooking, and this set is about making pemmican which is a great survival
food. If done correctly, this stuff can last a long time, is highly nutritious, and works well for a variety of purposes, not least of which
would be survival storage.
Anyhow, I thought this series of videos was interesting from several angles, and I thought some people might be able to make use of them.
you know I'll tell you what? Not all is as it seems on youtube videos. Like I've made hard tack on many occasions and it DOESN'T LAST. Like it lasts
all of a week before it gets mold. So all these supposed foods that last years and years are very suspect. Unless there's some real trick to it all???
But ya if you could make it and actually figure out how to make it last then it might be worth trying.
I figured if we did any, we'd vacuum seal it. And it wouldn't be a huge volume thing either. We aren't hard core preppers, but we do have a bit of a
stock laid in, a sealed drum or two of some stuff just in case we run into an emergency that lasts longer than the average.
If something hard core hit, like the total break down of society, we'd be screwed, but would I really want to survive that?
Yes,you want to be here thats why you have a couple of barrels sealed...double your supply every year until you have 7 years worth of food for your
entire family.Maybe some of them want to live but dont see the storm clouds building.
