Prep Blog Review: Meal Ideas + How To Store Them

Being able to independently feed our families is the main focus of self-sufficiency. Whether you call this prepping, gardening, or animal farming, that’s the goal.

The main issues I encounter when it comes to food is lack of money and storage.

Here are some useful tips I could find this week, on this topic. If you have any other suggestions (you can also check this and this), let me know in the comments section. Remember, we’re in this together!

“I have converted several self-professed haters of sauerkraut with this garlic-dill blend. It tastes just like dill pickles. And almost everyone likes dill pickles, including kids.

5. Lacto Fermented Garlic Scape Recipe


“It’s garlic scape season! Garlic scapes are the edible flower stalk of hard-neck garlic that shoot up in late May or early June.

Luckily, garlic scapes are intensely flavored, delicious, and versatile, and taste wonderful in a variety of dishes, including this lacto fermented garlic scape recipe.”
