Pressure Canning Pinto Beans

Clean and rinse beans to make sure there aren't any rocks etc. I then soaked 3/4 of a cup of beans in each jar full of water overnight. Next morning drain water and refill with fresh water These need to go for 70 minutes at 10 pounds. SUPER easy. For me, even better than Mylar bags for long term storage. One pint of home canned is about 2 store bought cans. Those beans are packed…

Zaycon Bulk Meat for Food Storage

I wanted to share with you real quick that Zaycon has ground beef back. I have purchased their bacon, chicken, and ground beef and have never been disappointed. Before you say "Oh, I don't need THAT much ground beef. Or Chicken" Notice nobody says they don't need that much bacon. I love Zaycon for their bulk options for food storage.

These are a Few of My Favorite Things

I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite things. These are items we have purchased for our emergency preparedness plan. We have these in case of extended loss of power due to snow storm or wind. Now, I could say in case of financial collapse or Zombie these scenarios aren't as likely. These are in no particular must haves. Solar oven. Even if it's the cold dead of winter, as long as…

Homemade Crockpot Apple Butter

Safeway had a sale on organic apples. .99 a pound! So I bought a a few pounds. I ended up with 9 full trays for the dehydrator. I am hoping I can have enough to store.
