Re: Prepping for Homeschooling preschool and up.

I home schooled my kids all the way through high school and it was a GREAT experience for all of us. I am now a retired home schooling mom :) Are you looking at beginning homeschooling or prepping for just in case you need to home school?? Either way there are lots of websites with free curriculum t...

Re: Cheap sauerkraut crock

Cool idea - I use second hand crockpot inserts found at the thrift stores too :) The lid part is a bit tricky but I can usually find a plate that fits.

Re: EATING WILD GAME

I just received a moose roast from my neighbour for keeping an eye on his place while he was away hunting. I have the instructions on how to cook it so it's on the menu for later this week. I've had deer and rabbit - that's it. Looking to broaden my horizons soon!

Re: Store packageing OK???

Hi NewWoman - welcome :) Yes please - rethink your storage!! The idea is to eliminate oxygen, heat, moisture and bugs. Many product you buy in the store are already contaminated with weevils which don't come to light until later in the form of pantry moths. With grains your best bet is to freeze the...

Alaska - the Last Frontier

I heard about this show and thought it sounded promising. It's like homesteaders Duck Dynasty in a sense. It's a Discovery program so if you have cable you may be able to watch it.

I've watched a few episodes - good rough life.

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

I buy it in bulk and just fill a mason jar when I need more. If kept under decent cool temps it doesn't seem to hurt it at all. For long term storage I would just leave it in the original container. Of course you know how much I love mason jars so if you do choose that option sterilize the jars firs...

Re: What have you added to your preps this week?

The price is different but this looks like the same one I bought off the shelf in Costco. http://www.costco.ca/Solar-Motion-Sensored-LED-Security-Light.product.10346698.html Last night was it's first night on - you need to charge it up in the sun for three days first. I can give you a better idea in...

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

The jury is out on the exact time frame for coconut oil - somewhere between 10 years and forever :)

Pine needles - yup. So simple - almost everyone could identify pine needles!

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

In my opinion the best bet for long term storage is coconut oil. You can read about it here: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/main-lowcarb-lobby/593697-shelf-life-coconut-oil.html We use coconut oil regularly and I buy it in large quantities. It's great for frying- doesn't break down at high temps ...
