Keep YOUR food pantry full. It's easy when you know how. Learn how to dehydrate fresh food. And frozen, even canned food.
I know it sounds counter-intuitive to dehydrate canned goods, but we're talking about saving space and making the canned goods far lighter to tote around.
Overall, storing dehydrated and canned foods that you regularly eat makes sense for maximizing pantry space, saving money on your grocery budget, getting optimal nutrition from stored food, and being prepared for personal emergencies or large-scale disasters/interruptions in food supply.
Have you seen (and felt) the price of food sky-rocket these past couple of months? For families on fixed budgets, it's a nightmare.
We've all felt the pinch at the checkout counter, and when we get home, we see that our 10 oz. of product is now only 8 oz. of product- in the same sized outer packaging.
And not always for the same price, sometimes it's costlier!
Did you know that the average American family only has enough food on hand to last THREE full days?
After that, it's everyone for themselves.
After natural disasters like hurricanes and earthquakes, volcano eruptions and tornadoes, AND not-so-natural disasters like the COVID-19 Pandemic... grocery store shelves empty FAST.
Sometimes the food delivery trucks can't make it to your neck of the woods, so whatcha gonna do?
I say "Be Prepared"... Learn how to dehydrate food!
Keep Your Food Pantry full!
I'm making these dramatic points on purpose. Nowadays, we all rely on the local grocery store for our food.
OK, so some fantastic (backyard) farmers out there can grow enough crops and raise cattle on a ten-acre plot—growing enough food to feed their family and a few neighbors, but these folk are RARE.
That's why I'm pointing out that you need to have enough backup food to keep your food pantry full so you and your family aren't caught empty-handed.
We had to throw away old half-thawed frozen stuff and eat all the refrigerated stuff as soon as possible. There had to be a better way to have food on hand that could be reconstituted with good old water and heated on a campfire (assuming your power is still out for a couple of days until power is restored).
That's why I created this Easy Food Dehydrating website and related
eBooks and paperbacks to help you all start building up a supply of
dehydrated fruits and veggies. I also created courses on the Udemy learning platform.
Another point in your favor for dehydrating food is this: you'll have fruits and veggies available to you all year round when they're out of season! How cool is that?!
