If you missed any of the previous months, go back and check them out! They are a quick way to get useful information. And it's information you will need if any of these emergencies come closer to home.
Having food storage is wonderful, but if you don't have a way to cook it, it's not much use. So make sure to store some essentials for cooking in am emergency. Check out all the info first on the video here:
Oven mits for taking pans out of fires
People-powered cooking devices (can openers, etc)
Pans with metal handles (cast iron is very good)
For cooking, we talked about three options:
1. Your indoor wood burning fireplace (make sure your flue is open)
2. Butane stove
3. Thermal cooker (you do need another heat source for the first 15 min)
Most cooking will be done out of doors.
1. Your BBQ grill - make sure your propane is full
2. Your outdoor firepit - perhaps store a grill or grate for use over the fire
3. Coleman stove with Coleman fuel
4. Solar cooker
5. Volcano Stove (maximizes your fuel)
6. Rocket stove (very little fuel needed)
Here are the cookbook links again. (They are also found in the side bar to the right) PLEASE print this off or call Copy Tec in Pleasant Grove and ask for the Mount Mahogany Cookbook (under my name - Michelle Jorgensen). Do it before you need it!
