Recently, I was in touch with Angela Paskett and briefly discussed her new book, "Food Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival". While I had read many books on the subject of food storage from great minds like Peggy Layton, the word "Survival" caught me a little off guard and I had to investigate what Angela had to say on the subject.
I'm glad I did.
One of the key things she did within the pages of the book is break down the time factor and told you how to prepare for it. For instance, Chapter 1 starts with 72 hour food storage and the following two chapters carry on with 2-3 month and 3+ months of storing your food. This allows the reader to go straight to the immediate goal. Even if I wanted to just start with 2-3 months of storage, I would urge the reader to glean the knowledge from the earlier chapter as well.
While the rest of the book leads the readers from Storing Water to Preserving, Packaging, Buying, Maintaining, Organizing, and Using the food, she also discusses long term Sustainable Food options. Remember the title has the words "Self-Sufficiency" in it. It even mentions a little known fact that was introduced with Ruth in Biblical days, called gleaning. Gleaning is picking up the harvest that is left after the machines have gone through a field and using it as your food source.
Clear and concise methods of food preparation and storage are provided within the pages. However, she does not stop at there. She gives the reader worksheets galore and discusses them in some detail. Additionally, she points us to a website where we can download the worksheets should we want to store them electronically.
I want to circle back to what I mentioned earlier and that is survival. Angela Paskett has done a wonderful job of integrating survival tips and tricks within the sections and chapters of her book. The thing that impressed me the most is I had never seen a book on Food Storage where a description and the how-to of creating a Dakota Fire Pit. Of course it is shown in survival manuals and I know how to make one, as well as being a fan of it, but this was in a book on food storage.
Way to go Angela!
I can’t stress it enough. This is a must have book for food storage beginners. It will become your go-to reference over and over again. Personally, I’m such a fan of Angela’s book that I’ve ordered a few more to give out to friends.
I checked out from library first to see if worth it - definitely is!
This would be a smart gift for anyone into self-sufficiency.
