Stockpiling food is obviously top of the prepper and homesteaders “to do” list. There are many ways of preserving food and I wanted to share a great informative article from shtfdad.com about this subject.
In the article there are 9 methods of food preservation, some you may know well and some you may not know so well. All are great ways to preserve your food and all of them WILL help you in a survival situation.
It is always a good idea to use different methods of food preservation when possible, for example, if you only dehydrate fruits try canning some. This not only gives you two sources of food in a SHTF situation but you could use the fluid from the cans to drink if you needed the fluids.
If you are a gardener using one or two methods of preserving your veggies may not be enough. I know when my garden starts producing I have to eat them or can them ASAP because I hate throwing away food that could be used to feed my family at a later date.
