No one is laughing at preppers like they used to, lol. Preppers used to seem a small extreme in what seemed like a fear of the future, but in view of recent events, we clearly seek that it really doesn’t take a whole lot to disrupt the normal provide chains. There are people of course, who have a sustainable root cellar that can feed a family for many months to years but having a small backup prevention with a few dry goods, is just common sense at this point. Beans and rice have been a prepper’s favorite since the beginning of time, and the fact that they will keep for a long time while tasting fresh is the reason why. Recently, I found this beans and rice dry canning video tutorial by Our Little Homestead, on YouTube, and everything that was outlined made complete sense. The idea here is to buy in bulk and make your individual servings so you aren’t dishing out of an open bag.
