Re: Utility... The shop

Ooooooh, sparklies!


Ty for that, excellent link - and I like their sense of humour too. Although I wouldn't use arsenic, too damned obvious and hard to get hold of. There's better ways ....

Re: What are you dehydrating?

We've just used minced beef to make jerky 'cakes' - they're pretty good! Just got a nice big bag of beef bones, which are destined to end up as dehydrated stock, and after sixty days, the venison pack from the local estate is getting turned into jerky. Youngest has started raiding the two minute ric...

Re: Tinned butter

We go through about 500g whenever I make soap, and at least 50g per day for bulletproof coffee! This is the stuff we use, and, bonus, the tubs it comes in are reuseable. https://www.amazon.co.uk/RealFoodSource-Certified-Organic-Pressed-Container/dp/B00CD4RLXA/ref=sr_1_1_s_it?s=grocery&ie=UTF8&qid=1...

Re: Tinned butter

We get ours from Amazon. We can buy it in larger quantities and it's better quality; cold pressed organic.


I use it for making soap, we can use it for cooking, it can be made into salves and all sorts of other things. And it doesn't go 'off'. Bloody marvellous stuff :)

Re: Tinned butter

Could you freeze dry it, perhaps?



As well as ghee, have a look at coconut oil. It doesn't go off the same way many other fats do, and has a very wide range of uses :)

Re: MOD Rations Shelf Life

Definitely have a look rather than just ditch. In the 80's, we were given rat packs that had been put together up to twenty years previously. They were still edible.* They'd thrown in some more modern chocolate that was clearly destined for overseas markets - no English writing. Even the words Rolo ...
