Over the past few weeks I realized how versatile oatmeal is.
Use it to make cookies
Eat it for breakfast
Oatmeal stores well in mylar bags
And something I learned recently, chickens love it. I throw a handful or two of oatmeal to my chicks and they love it. The chicks...
I came across this list online. It was originally for 2 people for 3 months. Since there are 4 of us I doubled everything up. Do you think this is adequate for 4 people for 3 months. If I remember correctly it was considered to be the basics. What thinks ye'?

I know this has probably been discussed before (as someone is surely to remind me). However, after three searches I grow weary of sifting through the thousands of threads already on the site.
Instead, I now appeal to the expertise of all those who are reading the boards today ... :thumb...

Well, The wife and I did our first food purchase towards stocking our pantry. About $700
and a few other things
I feel better knowing that we have enough for a few months at least, and while I know we...
I consider Rolled oats to be one of the best SHTF foods. Porridge for breakfast with brown sugar and a little butter is the fuel of the gods.
The best way I can think of to store it would be in Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers. Does anyone have any first hand experience of how long this will...
My food preps consist of uncooked (rice, corn meal, oat meal,etc), fillers (oils, sugars, honey, etc.), spices & salt, freeze dried, and canned ready to eat stuff. Much of this last category is in #10 cans from places like Costco.
Here is my problem, I am growing concerned that my wife, three...
I have read some of the threads here and watched some videos about packaging food for long-term storage, but still have some questions.
I just ordered some 5 gallon mylar bags and 2000 cc oxygen absorbers. I have read that some people use food grade 5 gallon buckets and other people just use 5...
I want to purchase some more dried goods including dried milk, brownie mix, baking power, baking soda, egg noodles. These are all in 5lb bags that I will buy multiple of and I want to transfer them into larger 5 gallon buckets with mylar bags and O2 bags for the long term.

i have some long grain enriched rice that i have bought for storage did i get the correct thing?

I finally got around labeling my mylar bags and buckets. I had them listed on a sheet by number, but I figured a centralized approach is doomed to failure.
I bought a printer finally after 3 years of not having one primarily so I could do these labels lol.
How do you label your unmarked...
I would like to try making bread without wheat. Could I just grind oatmeal until it is like flour and use that instead of white flour? I know it doesn't have gluten so it won't be as fluffy. I am trying to cut down on processed carbs where ever I can. Any tips or suggestions?
I bought whole grain oats from the feed store. I was hoping to be able to put in mylar bags (with ox absorbers) and if food ever ran out eat and feed to animals. Now looking at them they look nothing like oat meal and after further research I don't know If I will be able to eat it. LOL. I did a...
What are you paying for whole berry wheat? Where do you usually buy it?
We found a little amish store this weekend that sells bulk wheat. The only other place here is the natural food store and their wheat is organic and high! Just wondering where others buy wheat and for how much. thanks
I just finally finished storing Wheat and Oats in mylar bags/5gal.buckets.
I bought 50lb bags of both from a local feed store. Both were whole grain and I even called the mfg. to make sure no chemicals were used and that they were good for human consumption. The mfg.s assured me they were...
