Here's a short OVERVIEW of Wendy DeWitt's unique food storage system:
-Based on WORST CASE SCENARIO, no running water and no electricity.
-Determine how much food you need by basing your food storage on RECIPES.
-Factor in the type of COOKING SOURCE you will be using.
-Simplify rotation & avoid spoilage by storing items with 3+ yr SHELF LIFE.
-BOTTLE MEATS using a pressure canner--easy, juicy & tender, 3yr shelf life.
-Increase the shelf life of pantry items by VACUUM SEALING items in jars.
-STORE WATER for all your cooking needs.
-Create a food storage BINDER (recipes, exp dates, etc) & update annually.
Wendy's booklet explains all this and includes other helpful information: Food Storage Tips, Recipes, Substitutions, Source List and Equivalency Information.
