Conserver les légumes longtemps, c’est possible sans frigo! Terre – Anti-gaspi: Je me permets ici d’écrire un petit guide sans prétention aucune, qui permettra peut-être aux petits portefeuilles de faire des économies et aux autres d’éviter tout gaspillage de nourriture.

Conserver les légumes longtemps, c’est possible sans frigo!

Tout d’abord, dans ce système il faut être prévoyant (e). Faire ses provisions en temps opportun, aux époques les plus favorables de l’année lorsque les légumes sont abondants et peu coûteux. Si vous possédez un jardin, c’est encore plus facile. Ensuite, il faut savoir que certains légumes se conservent naturellement à l’état frais; d’autres, pour se conserver en bon état, ou acquérir des propriétés sapides, ont besoin de subir certaines préparations… Hélas!

C’est toujours le travail qui permet des économies. Généralement, les moyens de conservation employés pour les légumes sont : le sel, le vinaigre, la dessiccation, la cuisson prolongée et la stérilisation. Survival Gardening: Part 2.

Survival Garden: Part 1

Have you considered that... survival gardening may soon be a true matter of survival and not just a choice? With the rapid decline of our financial system and food supply, grocery store produce and other products, may soon be at a crisis level shortage like we have never seen. At that point, gardening would no longer be a "choice" for a more self sufficient lifestyle, it would be a matter of survival for everyone! This scenario is fast-becoming very probable and real.

How To Create An Off The Grid Source Of Water

Water independence is the clear goal for all who want to be prepared for all contingencies, and digging your own well is the obvious way to set yourself up in anticipation of a time when utility companies can no longer be relied upon to supply vital services to their customers. But digging a traditional well is not the only option. There is another type of well that is perfectly capable of providing sufficient supplies of fresh, clean, potable water to meet the needs of most households, especially if at least a degree of water conservation is practiced.

Driven-point wells are a convenient and affordable alternative, and in most instances they can be installed without the use of expensive or complicated equipment, which can make them an amazing project for the hands-on type who prefers the do-it-yourself approach.

Water Procurement - Water Sources

You can‘t live long without it, especially in hot areas where you lose water rapidly through perspiration. Even in cold areas, you need a minimum of 2 liters of water each day to maintain efficiency.

You don’t want to mess around with water that has not been purified. Take the necessary precautions and purify your water before you drink it. Simple rules like drinking clear water or water that is moving quickly don’t always apply.

These are the most common methods to purify water in survival or backpacking setting. Chef! Homemade MREs. For quite a while now, I've wanted to make up my own "MREs" for my Get Home Bag (GHB). I was recently out scouting some properties, and realized that my GHB only had some packs of tuna and some candy in them.

I had broken my own Cardinal Rule - If you use it, replace it immediately. So, I went about making up some MRE packages. Now, these are not true MREs, in that their shelf life is less than half of the 5 years of a commercial MRE, but I figured they were WAY less expensive (remember this later on in the post...). I assembled my "ingredients" based on "Best By" date, calories and protein content. The idea was to put long-life food together and vacuum seal it in a FoodSaver bag. Food Storage 101, What to Store. April 26, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin The first real tip here for ‘Food Storage 101′ is this: Store what you will eat!
