Recipes / Ham and Potato Bake (Food Storage)
« Last post by aces on October 16, 2021, 01:18:45 PM »
The latest from Cheryl Driggs:

This is quick and easy to prepare, with several variations.  Use small dehydrated potatoes such as diced or shredded (hash browns).  Both can be ordered online if you donít dehydrate your own.  Dehydrated hash browns can be found in grocery stores and big box stores, too. 

Be sure to can a few half pints of meat when you can your regular pints and quarts.  Process the same as pints.

HAM AND POTATO BAKE (Pantry Cooking with Home Preserved Food)

1 can (10-3/4 ounces) cheddar cheese soup
1 cup HOT water
1 cup small dehydrated potatoes
1 half pint diced ham, drained

Mix soup and water.  Add potatoes and ham.  Pour into a 1-1/2 quart casserole.  Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes.  Let stand 5 minutes before serving.  Serves 3.

To double:  Use a 2-quart casserole.  Bake 45 minutes.

VARIATIONS
TUNA HASH:  1 can (10-3/4 ounces) cream of mushroom soup; 1 can (6 ounces) tuna, drained and flaked.
TURKEY HASH:  1 can (10-3/4 ounces) cream of celery soup; 1 half pint turkey, drained and shredded.
CHICKEN POTATO BAKE:  1 can (10-3/4 ounces) cream of chicken soup; 1 half pint chicken, drained and shredded.

45$ is pretty close to knock off nato / harbor freight cans
no dents, no rust, no peeling liners to contaminate fuel

General Prepping Discussion / Re: Prepper Fiction

Wow, Bobby Akart is a prolific writer.  Not sure where to start. 

I finished 299 Days a few months ago, and really enjoyed them.  These days I am wondering more and more if his prediction of the government seizing all of the savings accounts and 401K's will come true.  Or maybe they will just inflate the debt away at this rate.  I got all of the books through my Audible subscription. 

A Great State was a good series too, and may be the only survival book I am aware of geared more toward a female audience.

General Prepping Discussion / Re: Holes in preps?
« Last post by Surveyor1 on October 13, 2021, 03:57:04 PM »
Just found a hole and plugged it!  Corn starch, not just for cooking as it has so many uses.  I found some $.02 per ounce cheaper than these but they were in boxes so I would have to repackage.  These containers should last awhile and since the shelf life is indefinite (as long as kept dry and bugs out) I thought this would be more convenient.

*Update - this is actually cheaper per ounce at Walmart in a 16 Oz container - .108 vs .131 per ounce.*

Rev Jammer, I keep my first aid stuff in a large plastic container.  I leave out a little of this and that, for everyday emergencies, like, for kids, you would want a box of band aids, and whatever your family prefers for "ouchies". I leave the meds on a plastic stepped shelf, so I don't forget they are there.  For example, things you may need as decongestants this winter.  Anything that expired, if in a place where you can see it, even if it is under a sink, will help you to not run to the store and buy another one.  All of this goes in the same cupboard.  If you pack your bandages acccording to size and possible usage and pack them tightly you can go right to them.  I have one fourth of mine packed for gunshot wounds, another to stitch someone up, that way everything related to the same need stays together.  This is just something that works for me.  Pack it tightly, so things don't get scrambled when you need to use them.  Good Luck!

I bought a couple of the plastic three drawer totes at Walmart that way I was able to organize everything and they have wheels on it so you can move it around easy to where you want it.  So far so good, medicationís in one drawer, bandages and Band-Aids and tape in another drawer, medical equipment in another drawer, etc. etc. etc.
