Re: TGIF~ Stocking up on Drugs ~

My m-i-law caught mrsa in the hospital. After trying to get it under control for over a year the hospital treated some sores she developed with silver dressings. Worked to start clearing it up within a few days and several weeks later it was totally resolved. Silver is a good thing to keep around. N...

Re: Storing food across temperature extremes?

Freeze-dried food can be stored at temperatures up to 23C safely and is not bothered by freezing. Canned food should be stored in a cool dark location. High acid foods such as canned tomatoes and canned fruit should be used within about 18 months and low acid (most vegetables) are good for 2-5 years...

Re: Peanut Butter

We are keeping the powdered peanut butter for rv use and emergency use mainly, but it works really well in smoothies, I can see that it would work well to make peanut butter frosting, etc. Some of the brands are sweeter than others, but they do taste like peanut butter.

Re: Peanut Butter

We have picked up several of the new peanut butter powders. Just add water and mix and ta da...peanut butter. There are several brands available and you might want to taste small amounts as some are sweeter, some are peanuttier.
