Re: Rotating emergency food stocks

FIFO...First In First Out.Nuff said. FIFO is an ideal, but if your stock is pretty massive and growing... and your User Id is Jenny and your stash is hard to access, then shunt the bulk of the stash into a one way store and leave it there to decay slowly till tshtf. Rotate stuff with short shelf life

Re: What to do with windows in a SHTF situation

Its a difficult one, if you spend a lot of time and effort to build up a reserve only for someone bigger (or more numerous) to take it off you but that's been the way of the world since we climbed out the swamps. Doesn't make it any easier, Indeed it's all pretty impossible. We could have a 10 year...

Re: What to do with windows in a SHTF situation

Don't know if its tongue in cheek but I wouldn't think of a domestic dwelling as a fort unless its been built as one. Much as I love Casa Deeps, its hardly the Schloss Adler and I could be burned out or overwhelmed if people wanted to. Quite often on here I've read people looking to fortify their o...

Re: What to do with windows in a SHTF situation

The question to me.... If boarding doors or windows, which is best? Inside or out? If you board up windows on the inside, then the glass is vulnerable and once that's smashed, the boarding could be smashed inwards easily. But visibility could be maintained with a few holes. Inside allows fitting and...

My wife was quite surprised today when she didn't have any pasta and I magically produced some from a cupboard outside the kitchen :D
LOL, did she say anything about it being a 10kg bucket with BBE Jan 2012

Re: Best cooking system for SHTF situation

I have all the 'ingredients' to make a small Rocket Stove. It will be my go-to solution after the propane barbecue gas runs out and after my mini gas canisters are empty. I will also probably build a bigger breezeblock one in the back garden. Always assuming mains gas and electric are off-line and I...

Re: Stashing and Using Jackfruit

and now I've heard of it.... Look forward to your results. Well, A very quick google tells me it can pretend to be pulled pork or it can sneak into a super simple bolognese... https://theplantpoweredpt.com/jackfruit-bolognese/ So, that's what I'm going for. Version 1. Jackfruit Version 2. Dried Soy...

Stashing and Using Jackfruit

I keep seeing this new wonderfood, Green Jackfruit, on Telly and 'tinternet. had not heard of it till this year. And today it was reduced to £1 in Sainsbubs, so I bought a tin, in water. Seems a promising, reasonable value long term meat (and pulse) substitute. I'm thinking of doing a three way expe...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

I was just checking out the website, which goes to a supplier at the same address, offering free delivery *nationally* for orders over £35, and saw 1.5kg of linseed for £3.29. In ordinary Sainsbos etc, 100g of linseed is currently 90p ... I'm definitely going to do an online order when I get back f...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Holland and Barratt sell TVP mince. Thank's... and soya chunks at £5.30 / Kilo. Not too bad and maybe better when they have their next promo. I just wish I didn't hate their product naming enough to make me want to scream. Product naming is really the least of considerations. ;) I'm a very petty cu...
