More Food Storage Recipes

Last year I posted here about some printable recipe resources for basic long-term food storage foods.  HERE is another printable recipe book that uses only items in the "One Month Basic Supply Kit" from the LDS Church, which includes wheat and flour, oil, sugar, dry milk, macaroni, rolled oats, pinto beans, and salt.  Super great for your food storage library!

O2 Absorbers and Sealing Mylar Bags

Here is some quick info I ran across.  The PDF can be printed and helps you determine how many O2 absorbers you need to pack your food in various containers.  I did not make this chart so I don't know if it is 100% accurate.  The video demonstrates how to seal mylar bags with an iron.  You can also use a flat iron if you have one!
