Okie’s Law • Re: How do preppers keep from losing their minds?

April 17, 2017 watcher 0

How did our country ancestors keep from “losing their minds”? They stayed busy because they had to, there was always work to be done. They also worked hard and at the end of the day were too tired to be bored. Even in the winter there was repairs to be made and things to make (carving out utensils, mending harness, making hand crafted toys/nicknacks, tending stock). Children also had to be taught. Read the historical documents/diaries.

Also remember that when it comes to family groups they must be judged not on the strengths of a single member but the liabilities of all the members. While you might be able to pick up that blacksmith or medical person out of a family, what about the rest? What is the spouse and/or children like? Is it going to be a complete battle to educate them on the changed circumstances of their lifestyle and teach them the new skills and mindset needed?

The bread we made for St. Pats day was a variation of Jas Townsend multigrain bread with barm – https://youtu.be/0dtBjqIu5W8 – with two substitutions. The first was to use whole grain spelt flour in place of the whole grain wheat and the barley flour (the DS tries to avoid wheat flours). The second was to replace the water with more beer (the beer we used was a rye stout). The bread was excellent. Ate up some more of it today as reuben sandwiches.

General Food Topics • Re: Dehydrated Apple Sauce-Purchasing #10 Cans

March 20, 2017 watcher 0

I have. Dehydrated it in a Nesco dehydrator on fruit roll up trays. Dried it down to brittle. Used it on camping trips to add to oatmeal for breakfasts. Works great along with a little sugar and cinnamon. Also have made peach sauce for same reason and same way. A little sugar and non-dairy creamer into the oatmeal is good for that. If you don’t mind pink oatmeal same with strawberry sauce
