prepper's pantry will add a variety of meal
ideas for your family or group. You can toast oats, grind them

to love oats. Here's
why oats should be part of your food storage.

breads, but you can also use them in soups, stews, meatloaf and
side dishes! Use them as a pilaf or as crouton replacement in
salads. You can also
sprout hard white wheat berries that have
not been irradiated Wheat berries are known for being a good
source of magnesium and vitamins B1 and B3.

#5: Salt and sugar buckets.
Salt and sugar are the most basic condiments. Having a bucket of
each will go a long way towards making your prepper's pantry
more complete.

ingredient of cookies and cakes, and will give little kick of
sweetness to your fruit, coffee or tea. Sugar is an essential
ingredient to many recipes, making it an ingredient you can’t be
without.

grade bucket. The people at Augason Farms have done the work
for you. A bucket of

  • What to store with your sugar bucket. Obviously you'll
    need flour. You can store oat flour, wheat berries.

Salt.

your weight in salt, you'll have a
bucket of iodized salt handy for
the apocalypse. Salt is something the ancients traded for and
died getting. Salt is relatively cheap today, but will one day be
difficult or impossible to get.

Even if you're on a low-sodium diet, consider adding a bucket of  
salt. Storing salt for the long term is vital. Salt not only balances
electrolytes that regulates your heart rate and ensures proper cell
functions, but it can treat a variety of ailments. Salt can help
when there is no doctor to treat sore throats and ease dental
issues. As well, salt can help preppers make soap, clean up

better.

and shredded, it’s easy to add them to soups, casseroles, and
even salads. Bolster your emergency food storage with these
versatile potato shreds.

    dried eggs, freeze dried cheese, and canned bacon and ham.
    You'll also need oil and perhaps a little canned butter.

breakfast. Use the flour as a coating for baked or fried chicken.

that you eat rice! Buy what you eat, then eat what you buy,
rotate and repeat.Storing rice is very easy. You need only protect
the rice from water and pests by using a food grade bucket with a
lid. If stored properly, it's a food that will last virtually forever.

is under $50 and offers you 24-lbs. of rice conveniently stored in
a food grade bucket with the proper oxygen absorber to last 30
years. The bucket once opened is good for up to one-year, which
you will easily eat well before the suggested expiration if you're a
family of four. There's a nice pull tab to open the bucket easily
without a bucket opener and there's a space to mark the month
day and year opened.

  • Butter
  • Soy sauce
  • Freeze dried vegetables
  • Freeze dried meats

#2: Pinto Beans Bucket.
Another way to kick start your food storage is to add pinto beans
to your larder.

lbs. bucket of pure pinto bean protein. Pinto beans are the
superfood everyone should include in their emergency food supply
because they last 30 years. With them you can make baked
beans, falafels, veggie burgers, chili and more. Ultra versatile,
you can grind the pinto beans into flour for baking.

of protein, fiber and complex carbohydrates. What's more, beans
are low in fat and high in antioxidants and vitamins, making them
a clear choice for long-term food storage.

    the rice that together with your beans will make the perfect
    protein source, store:

    or freeze dried ground beef are excellent
    accompaniments to pinto beans.


  • Canned ham. A wonderful complement to pinto beans
    and your Fiesta pinto bean seasoning is ham. In an
    emergency it's good to have canned ham in your
    preppers pantry for casseroles, sandwiches and as a
    savory accompaniment to beans. Add diced onions with
    your ham, beans and Fiesta pinto bean seasoning, and
    serve cornbread on the side.

Augason Farms has instructions for soaking your pinto beans
overnight or preparing them quickly by boiling and soaking for a
few hours. Either way, you’ll enjoy pinto beans in salads, chili’s,
casseroles and much more. The label also includes recipes for
pinto beans and pinto wheat bread. What’s great about  pinto
beans is that you can dress them up in recipes or simply enjoy
their natural flavor with a pinch of salt and pepper...
