So while I have been moving into my new house I have been without internet for a couple of weeks. Part of it has been nice (the part that Jodi has been covering most of the emails and what not) but it’s made me go a little crazy! Something we’ve talked about before, and I always knew, is that if there were some kind of emergency where there was no power (or internet) how many of your resources would be lost. I rely so heavily on the internet for information, and recipes. The past couple of weeks has re-confirmed to me how important it is to have your “stuff” OFFline.
One great way to have information off line is through books, printed recipes, and your Food Storage Made Easy Binder.
Food Storage Books
We have done a number of Food Storage Book reviews that we wanted to remind you about, and encourage you to figure out which books would best fit your needs. These are great things to ask for as gifts, or to give as gifts. Here are some of our current Food Storage Book reviews, along with some books we will be reviewing in the future:
Emergency Food Storage in a Nutshell – REVISED review to reflect the new edition
Country Beans – Amazing book on all things beans
Cooking with Food Storage Made Easy – Cute book with tons of easy recipes!
Jan’s Fabulous Food Storage Recipes – Treasure trove of great information
Dinner is in the Jar – A different approach to food storage
Food Storage Recipes
Recipes is probably one of the MOST important things to have in print format. Not only will it save your laptop from tomato slime by having it in the kitchen, but you’ll be able to cook without power and internet!
For some great tips about building your recipes offline see these posts:
How to Organize Your Recipes – Jodi shares her approach to compiling recipe binders with a great little tutorial
FREE Shelf Stable Cookbook – Compilation of over 200 shelf stable recipes you can print out and add to your binder
Food Storage Made Easy Binder
As a part of our Food Storage Made Easy ebook binder, we’ve included tons of informative articles and recipes you can turn to in times of need. We also encourage you to print other resources you find online or at classes you may attend and put it into your binder. Use the binder as your main go-to resource for building and using your food storage.
