Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

We are going to fit a temperature controlled exhaust fan over the winter but it doesn't get that hot tbh. I have 8 large vent tiles in the roof along the roof line and soffit vents so there is a constant draw through. I'm in a first floor flat with no outside space so it's this or nothing for me. I...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

I've been laying down some longer stores of food. Dehydrated 5kg of mixed peppers. Prepared and vac packed some chilli peppers. Onions in tights strung up in the attic (nice and cool). Garlic braides strung up. Still working through bulk herbs and spices vac packing into smaller packs. Flour is alm...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

jenny , definitely get the book! I've read loads about the home front and wartime in general, but this was the first one ever written by somebody young who wasn't really into history but who just wanted to try something different. She went off the rails after about a month and went out with friends...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

Emotional resilience yes. I think prepping is all about attitude, not lists or spreadsheets or good intentions. Because we can all start off well, it's the keeping on going bit that's hard. Ah! that struck a chord as being me. ...frantic driven people tend to snap. Start off well then whizz around ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 7.

We noticed a spike in what I call “freezer filling” internet orders today at work. The actual footfall was a lot lower too - and proper social distancing was more evident. Thanks for the heads up. Funny how I just can't feel satisfied even with 4 chock full smallish freezers. I could happily buy an...

Re: Best for tinned meat

Well spotted: currently on rollback £1 for 300g https://groceries.asda.com/product/cold-meats-corned-beef/pek-chopped-pork/75631112 Must add some to my order. I see the 170g tins are £1.38 and the stock of big tins is very low. Might speculatively 'allow substitutions' to see if I can get the small...

Re: Best for tinned meat

The idea that if you are hungry enough , you will eat it, is not true. Thanks Jansman for the quite deep and personal i...

Store what you eat , eat what you store.I can't see the point of storing food you dislike. I didn't like it, but I was brought up eating a LOT worse, so it's no ordeal by way of...
