Food Storage Method: #3 Dry Ice Packing

Comments are off for this post.
The Dry Ice Method The instructions for using this method are as follows: One pound of dry ice is used for a thirty-gallon drum of wheat. Place about three inches of grain on the bottom of the Mylar bag that is inside a plastic bucket. Then place a three-inch square of dry ice on top of the food that you just poured in. Fill the bucket about half full and allow thirty minutes to two hours for the ice to dissipate completely. Now lay the lid on loosely so the gas can escape. Once all gas has escaped, seal the […]

Overwhelmed by long term food pantry? Relax and take steps.

I know how you feel. Just take a deep breathe and compartmentalize…..it can be very overwhelming at first.  That’s one reason I found these buckets – people were telling me that for a year’s supply I had to vacuum pack and re-vacuum pack etc…drove me nuts! It’s like I invaded Fort Knox each time I wanted to cook!   My opinion is to first focus on the minimum 1 year useful pantry. It’s the one you will get into on a regular basis now and learn to build meals from….so that ‘in case’ of emergency you are also skilled in […]

Wheat and corn prices effect more than baked goods.

Comments are off for this post.
Have you looked at just about any box of ‘packaged’ pre-prepared food in the store for ingredients? What about some of the processed ‘meats’ that are the staples for the Standard American Diet (yes, SAD is a very good acronym for it)? Most foods contain wheat.  In some form or another wheat (and corn) have found their way into some of the oddest foods you would think! Mostly they are ‘fillers’ but yet, the wheat and corn are hidden in the ingredients, and thus, will affect prices. According to Hilton Dinner, a bakery owner from Edmonton, Canada, the price of flour […]

Irradiated Foods

Comments are off for this post.
In the UK, irradiated foods are already ‘available’ to the consumer. There is a difference, though, they are LABELED. They are labeled in the stores AND on the menus.  Now either the FDA thinks that Americans are stupid, or apathetic about their own health and that ‘they’ (aka: big brother) know better or ‘The Mother Land’ actually DOES have brighter people living there. Somehow the UK government is fine with telling them their food choices include irradiated foods. The consumer’s right to know is obviously more important to the UK and the USA.  Can we call the Better Business Bureau on our […]

Food rationing hits home.

In an article in the New York Sun, Josh Gershtein wrote a few very interesting and quotable remarks: “Many parts of America, long considered the breadbasket of the world, are now confronting a once unthinkable phenomenon: food rationing.” “…Major retailers….are limiting purchases of flour, rice, and cooking oil as demand outstrips supply.” “…most Costco members were being allowed to buy only one bag.” movie net the man from nowhere (ajeossi) movie freight download movie the american trailer telecharger devil dvdrip His article goes on to make more references to food rationing that is taking place in America, home to what […]

Wheat and Grain crops in crisis.

Comments are off for this post.
In October 2007 scientists and researchers met in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia and established an early warning system to check the spread of stem rust. A survey system was then set up that would help researchers track and identify the spread of the fungus The Bill Gates Foundation has given $26.8 million U. S Dollars to Cornell University for a new global project to combat this fungus: wheat (stem) rust disease, which specialists say poses a threat to the world’s food security. Fungus is not the only issue at hand in the wheat and grain crisis. By our own choices and thirst for […]
