Food Storage

Food storage is one of the most important things that a family needs to learn about when they are planning on becoming self sufficient. A good food storage plan encompasses more than one type of food storage to meet the needs of the family. However, each family will need to decide how much food they need to store and the type of food they are going to store. Then they need to plan out where they will store it and the methods in which they will use to store the food they want.

Dehydrating food is the process of eliminating the most of the water out of the food which makes it lighter in weight and allows it to be able to keep for a longer period of time when stored properly. Dehydrating the food also makes the food take up less space because it does not have the volume of the water in the food any longer. This is why it is so appealing to backpackers who are contentious about the weight and space of the food they will need to carry for longer backpacking trips.

Pressure canning is a common method of food storage which has been around for many years. It allows a family to keep a combination of produce or meat that they have harvested for longer periods of time than some of the other methods of food storage. However, pressure canning can be dangerous if the food is not processed for the proper amount of time. Therefore, before they start pressure canning they should consult a guide which will explain the proper procedure and processing time for each type of food that they are planning to pressure can.

Smoking is an old method of curing the meat to prep it for storage. However this method is seldom used today because the invention of refrigeration has replaced the need.

Freezing is a common method of storing meat for several months at a time. However it is ineffective when the power goes out for more than a few hours. Once the meat begins to thaw it is not safe to freeze again and it will only keep for a few days which means it will either need to be used or thrown out.

A root cellar is an underground room that is used to store fresh produce and canned food to keep them for longer periods of time. However, most people now days find it easier to keep their food in the house in a refrigerator and cabinets instead of bothering with a root cellar.

Creating a good food storage plan can seem like a daunting task. However, if it is broken down into smaller segments it will be more manageable. This is why families should work out a plan that starts with planning for one day, three days, a week, a month and then a year. Once they have mastered the food storage plan they will be that much closer to becoming independent.
