FOOD STORAGE SECRETS
ince the beginning of recordedtime, man has been preserv-ing food items in a variety of ways.Ancient Middle East culturesutilized the arid desert to dry and pre-serve meat and vegetables. Those livingin the arctic regions used the ice to pre-serve the meat they needed to survive.Since the dawn of the industrial age,however, we have lost a lot of that an-cient wisdom. We rely on commercialfarms and grocery stores for our needs.We have allowed a select few to monop-olize the food chain, placing the averagecitizen in a precarious position of depen-dency on global corporations.Recent disasters like the terrorist at-tacks on the Twin Towers and HurricaneKatrina show us that we need to be pre-pared. When disaster strikes, you can’tcount on the government or the state toprovide for you.Even if you live in a high rise apartment,you can take advantage of whateverspace you have available for growing andstoring food items. You can utilize meth-ods of preserving food that will take intoconsideration your family size and stor-age area. For those with a sizable pantryor basement, canning may be the pre-ferred method. For those where space isa highly valuable commodity, dehydra-tion may be the way to go. There are no special skills required tolearn how to preserve your own foodsafely. With the economic crisis the worldnds itself in, and everyone looking forways to stretch their money, there’s nobetter time to start learning food storagesecrets!
