R U Ready could you live off your pantry for 90 days

Recommended Posts

Bread id the staff of life, so does anyone have the basics to make Biscuits, corn bread or tortillas any kind of bread for 90 days ?

How many of you know how to make pasta ? and what it takes to make it ?

This same channel PBS supports socialism and rails against capitalism and yet they see this travesty in Venezuela and cannot connect the dots that they are promoting the same things that ruined Venezuela. only 4 minutes of your time to see what can happen everywhere if too many other countries start to fall like dominoes.

How many knows the minimum caloric intake needed to sustain yourself and how much in food that actually is. 

Here is a list you need to have and be aquatinted with   Alphabetical List of Number of Calories in common foods

 

Did you know there is powdered buttermilk  Powdered eggs and  powdered milk all of these have a long shelf life and when used in baking.

You can make your own Ghee butter all ghee butter is, the removal of all milk solids heat the butter not too hot and skim off the solids that rise until no more rises, now you have a butter oil that resists spoilage you may can this I would do it in small jars heat as seal as any canning is done these could be water bath canned.

cooking oil and shortening are 2 different things and you need both for a longer term storage canned spray oil shortening may be divided into glass canning jars remember head space and can them this way they stay fresh and last years it can be done in a oven but hot oil is dangerous and the edge of the canning jars need to be clean to allow the lid to seal.

Is this a trick question ? no but it is a bit confusing how many cups are in 1 pound of flour ANSWER depends on the flour !

1 pound of cake flour, use 4 1/2 cups.  generally made from soft wheat  has lower protein but more starch

 1 pound pastry flour, use 4 1/4 cups. soft wheat

1 pound whole wheat flour, use 3 1/3 cups. hard red wheat has more protein and gluten and  mixed with soft wheat

1 pound of all-purpose flour, use 3 1/3 cups. hard red wheat mixed with soft wheat

self-rising flour, which is all-purpose flour with leavening ( Baking powder added ), unless the recipe specifically calls for it not needed, but then you make your own when adding Baking powder to all purpose flour

Most baked goods require eggs water and oil some require milk . many require Baking Powder NOT Baking soda BUT baking soda is used in some recipes so have some of both.

all flours need to be frozen for 10 days to kill any weevils or other critters after freezing take the bag out and wrap it in a towel and allow it to come to room temperature over a period of a 24 hour day or 2 then seal it in mylar bags you can get these here.  www.beprepared.com

How to make your own Baking Powder, the reason why to show that it is easy but the main ingredient is Cream of Tartar not exactly a common item in your pantry so get some and as well have baking soda and cornstarch as well to make gravy thicker look how below it is not obvious 

Make your own baking powder.

Ingredients

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional)

 

Using Corn Starch to thicken you need to mix it with COLD WATER mix till it dissolves completly OR ELSE YOU'LL HAVE MAJOR LUMPS IN YOUR GRAVY NOT GOOD !

Other things you need are bullion beef, chicken, tomato and vegetable if you can find it this turns plain biscuits into sh*t on the shingle otherwise known as SOS it is gilling and much better than starving for lack of food or flavor IMHO.

Spices I would have in bulk are chili powder, Paprika, black pepper, garlic powder, Red pepper flakes and I like powdered cumin or otherwise called Comino, celery & coriander seeds and any others you like. Because I like gumbo I have filet on hand which is ground dried Sassafras leaves.  All of these spices have a unique and unparalleled flavor that if you don't have them your food will taste like school paste IMHO.

Sauces Soy sauce Worcester sauce 

condiments Mustard  (Mustard does not go bad ) Mayonnaise 

Sweet pickle relish, dill pickles

If you love ranch dressing better have powdered Ranch Dressing mix.

Sugar and rice are two things that need to be in dry containers but will last a very long time.

Beans well the problem is cans do not last so you have to rotate as any other canned good but you can buy Rosarita flaked dried cooked beans and they last a very very long time and have the same protein as steak.

Noodles last a long time if kept in a air tight container this is poor mans food starch is a filler for your belly nothing worse than hearing children crying because their belly is empty !!!

Potato flakes keep them in a good tight container mashed potatoes are a staple all starches are they are seasonal for the most part and when food is hard to find any starch will be impossible to get look up Venezuela's problems.

Knorr Powdered soup mixes are fantastic and last a long long time in their packaging Mixed with water and noodles your making your own Ramen style soup.

Peanut butter and Jelly a staple for kids and easy -- jar jelly is as good as you can get lasts years and satisfies a sweet tooth if you don't have a case of MIXED fruit jellies your crazy, or never had children.

Drink mixes like cocoa coffee tea or many fruit mixes as well as koolaid and gator aid.

this is not the end just a primer but if you had enough of this you would not have to worry about going hungry.

 

In Venezuela you can fill your car with gas for less than 2 dollars but they do not have any OTC medicine and most food is scarce this in a country overflowing with oil but socialism took everything away from the individuals and when the government could not pay the people they left because the jobs did not pay enough to buy food and pay utilities now mopst of the country is on a basic paycheck that only buys them 3 days of food and they have to live a month on it. Some items like flour rice and beans are metered out and the people cannot count on when or if they can get them. Food is a political tool against Hugo Chavez enemies and the military defends the food distribution centers while crime soars and at night you take your life in your hands if you go out. much worse than Chicago.

With countries in riot the flow of money amd goods can and will stifle and that has caused financial failures that ripple to countries even a large as the U.S. be ready the riots are spreading now to England and I have heard some here in America.

pasta is flour some like semolina flour a course grind of durum flour, used in making pizza crust. has a yellow color.

1 cup semolina or all purpose flour 1/8th teaspoon mixed with flour, pour out in a pile, make a funnel like hole and put in 1 egg mix egg incorporate all flour a bit at a time working outward. roll on a flour powdered surface powder top of dough and roller, roll out thin as you like cut into strips cook or dry for later on a rack or tree.

 

Another recipe 1 egg 2 tablespoons milk 1/8th to 1/2 teaspoon salt  1 cup all purpose flour rest is the same the above lasts longer dried, and absorbs less off smells over time keep in a container.

I have cooked fresh noodles in bullion to taste add a small amount of Swiss knorr vegetable soup mix maybe some "meat floss" or sung or song a dried meat look it up i kept mine in the freezer or you can keep in a mason jar unrefrigerated.

P210SIG yes sir that is a hurdle to have that much clean water figure starvation rations it would take 50 gallons a month. what most forget is cleaning so have enough paper plates and plastic wear and all that can be used as heating fuel afterward some can also be used to bait traps as it is the scent that attracts animals so a piece of paper plate with the scent of food will draw them in.

Water barrels 55 and 6o gallon work great but need to be dumped and refilled at least once a year better twice 1/4 cup bleach a gallon of water and close it and roll the barrel around to clean the inside do not dump just stand up and fill reseal and it is water you need to treat it one it's de-potted.

Nice thing about barrels they can be used as tables with a plywood table top and placed all over and even buried and used to catch rain as long as the air is not compromised. heavy ash from volcanoes makes the water alkali too much and it's toxic.

Distilled water IS NOT SAFE TO DRINK as it has little mineral content as it passes through the body it strips the minerals from you. I forget the scientific term but chelation or damn I forget the word but minerals are drawn to water or if the water has an abundance of minerals the body absorbs them but there has to be an exchange of oxidized minerals for fresh to refresh the blood. Life is in the blood as it carries all the vital nutrients to every place in the body if your drinking distilled water you need to take an all purpose vitamin. Dehydration is not so much the lack of water but the laqck of electrolytes  vitamins and proper minerals. Some minerals are toxic and the body's receptors are fooled by their atomic structure and they attach but cannot proceed with cellular regeneration because it cannot be cycled into the proteins and the cell dies, enough of this and you die. Your body has to keep ahead of atrophy ( slow death )  by withering away / wasting .

I wish I could just dump my mental contents as it is so very long winded to explain all the factors that can and do happen, remember we are preparing for an unknown event Nuclear, Biological, Chemical or NBC  BUT it's not that simple what if all of the above are in play like Mount St. Helen's and add in damage to chemical plants and a nuclear plant in a weather event like a low pressure system HOLY CRAP would that be a nightmare.

Any event can be minimized or exacerbated by weather 100+ degrees no power and you have to seal your home up below freezing and dry as a bone and all your water is outside or you have none and the air is toxic being in it and your clothing is compromised. what is worse some events leave or have no trace a million ways to die is no joke even a library of knowledge and that one thing you miss and it's over and then there is Murphy, that bast@rd never sleeps. All of your perfect children and grandchildren will be Murphy's little helpers or the grim Reapers even the best children are fool hearty emotional impulsive I was a child once and regretted it children refute teachings by nature they are condescending and revel in ignorance.  Today we allow children way to much freedom and once any situation hinders their social life or internet connection your going to have a tragic situation brewing, so having stores and chores to keep them busy your going to have to chain the up. Ann Frank is dead that type of instinct is rare and that is why she is held up as a amazing child she suffered but endured all a grown person could not have horribly she died before the camps were liberated and that is the hard facts of life people die all the time from lack of preparation the normalcy bias and fail to get  while the gettings good or flat run out of goods time and faith -- yes faith as faith is the belief in things not seen and the future is just that an unknown and if your faith withers you wither - and die with or without water Food drums and IBC totes cannot be reused so look for them get the blue barrels they withstand sunlight over white barrels look for acid barrels from brick laying contractors  watch it but they are filled with Hydrochloric acid  and you want the barrels wit the least amount left look up diluting acid de-acidify and wash rinse well and you can store water in them they are black and most are 30 gallon barrels .... well I ain't got all day bar-b-q is calling me with some blackberry cobbler -eat drink and be merry cause tomorrow sh*t might be Forked up  :ph34r:
