    Hi ConnieR and a Happy New Year all!!

    So with snow and ice right now this is the perfect time to think about emergency again... Hopefully no one will get into trouble these days.

    My name is Kate.
    I am a newie in this post of food and recipes.
    I would like to present my favourite indian dish: it is called Motichoor Ladoo
    Its description: Many Indian sweets were originally made only for weddings, festivals or to give as special gifts. The tradition continues today. And Motichoor Ladoo is one of the favourite sweets that are used to mark special occasions. But don't let that stop you. This extraordinary sweet makes a great treat at any time. Motichoor Ladoo is a cluster of tiny capsules of sweetness, dusted with pistachio nuts, waiting to burst onto your tongue. Made using a rich mixture of gram flour, sugar and butter ghee, the whole mix is cooked carefully in a sweet syrup.

    Maybe I'm a bit thick - but where is that recipe? I can only see advertising. Is that supposed to be right?

    I removed the links since they were advertising. I didn't look at first. Just assuming they were links to recipes. I will know better next time.
    So to answer your question....You are not a bit thick. Maybe I am! lol

    The need for emergency food supply storage is as important as stashing foods under our bed just like we used to. Emergency food storage is a good habit to practice. This will ensure that you and your family will have something to keep you alive and healthy in case disaster struck.

    Edited to remove advertising link.

    This statement is very true. If you are not in the habit of setting something aside now - you may have to pay later.

    Mia, I read your post from last yr and you are very lucky to have neighbors that you might share or barter with. I've been looking into long-term storage of foods and dry goods, as well as other "survival" strategies. There would be a huge call for home-grown food, animals, crafts, not to mention those who know how to create these things, fences, smokers,weaving/sewing, water wells, repair of the necessities, preserving, sugar
    or syrup making, Lordy and on and on. Have you delved any deeper into the subject since your original post? Just interested in your thoughts and getting the thread going again. In this country, I fear learning about this may be much more important than the masses know.

    Hi O.D.,
    I fear that you are quite right. Your country naturally is an endangered aerea, especially for things like earth quakes to happen. Which is something not very likely to happen to us where I dwell. But there are also other things that probably will happen one day not very far in the future.
    Yes, I think I delved deeper into this subject, experimenting with canning and pickling. Next thing I want to do is getting a dehydrator.
    Also we are into alternative technologies for heating, electricity etc. No use of things like dehydrators when there's no power icon_lol.gif
    With our friends we still would be able to bake and smoke because one of them has a stone oven and several others have smoking ovens, we have a smoker grill ourselves. But if you consider these things, you also have to consider what to do if someone can't have pickled or smoked items? I can do all this, but I wouldn't be able to eat it, so I would have to think of other methods for preserving - i. e. learn to dehydrate without dehydrator and things like that.
    Or if storing grain for flour, you have to have a handmill to mill the grains in case there's no power.
    Water is definitely not our problem here - we have LOADS of it, have to get rid of it so the house doesn't drown. Just dig one foot and you have water....
    But still, you always have to think that our most sensitive spot might be power because we depend on it in mostly everything we do.

    I had a pantry in one of my apartments that got stocked over time, though not on purpose. I ended up living off the little bit of accumulated food for months during a lay off. I am now stocking on purpose, and am up to about 6 months of long term storage. I recently started gardening so I've got a growing pantry set aside just for my home canned and dehydrated foods.My goal is to make it to a year, then I'll likely start prepping for my S.O. as well.

    I am currently doing a no spend month where I'm only cooking from my pantry and the last of the produce my garden has to offer for the season. Although I did cheat a little and stocked up on cheese, butter, and sour cream enough for the month.

    Don't you just love your garden? It does require a bit of effort but the payback is so worth it when you see jars of fruit/veggies on your shelf. Great job on your storage! icon_smile.gif

    I've been here before, but it's been so long. I am just now starting the project in earnest.


    How did you become interested in Emergency Food/Supplies preparation?
    News of terrorism, pandemic threats....also we lose power here. However, particularly when the head of some emergency agency said three days of food wasn't realistic; he was doing 6 months for his family

    How did you hear about this forum? Just saw it.

    Have you ever had an emergency (natural, man-made, or financial) that caused you to dip into your supplies? How much of a difference did it make?
    Yes. Lost power for a week. Great to have the stuff here.

    How long have you been using preparedness techniques? Dithering for a year, but now finally have my list of foods to store.

    What is your best tip to those just starting out? Figure out what you'll eat because unless you don't mind throwing out food, you'll need to rotate and use this stuff.

    What is the best thing to avoid for those just starting out? No Idea.

    Hello, everyone. My name's Cindi, and I found this forum as I was reading some of the other posts on here.

    I went through Isabel in 2003 and Irene just a couple of weeks ago. My mom and I are both daibetics so we always try to have a kit with food that we can eat, extra blood glucose meter and strips, meds and syringes/pentips, and other things.

    One thing that I haven't seen a posting about is emergency food/supplies for your pet.

    Does anyone on here prepare for your pets like you do for yourselves?

    How did you become interested in Emergency Food/Supplies preparation?

    ANS: The current economic recession has caused me to stop being complacent and thinking that food would never run out


    How did you hear about this forum?

    ANS: Google


    Have you ever had an emergency (natural, man-made, or financial) that caused you to dip into your supplies?

    ANS: No and I hope that it doesn't happen



    How long have you been using preparedness techniques?

    ANS: Last few years


    What is your best tip to those just starting out?

    ANS: Start purchasing extra food for storage immediately. Don't wait for perfect conditions to buy your 3 month supply from one company. Start small and with time your times will grow.


    What is the best thing to avoid for those just starting out?

    ANS: Don't buy foods in bulk that they are not going to eat or that they have no experience cooking
