Food Storage Tuesday

Every Tuesday, we post specific items you should gather in order to supplement your emergency car kit, your three-month supply, and your longer term storage.  If you are new to our blog, don't worry!  You won't be left behind.  Just start up where we are and follow along.  You will eventually have everything completed.  Once the car kit is complete, we'll be putting together 72-hour kits again (week by week).  Once those are done, we'll gather the car kits again.  So don't worry, just jump on in and join us where we are today!

This week for your car kits, add a book or some scriptures.  I don't know about you but I love to have some reading material in my car for times that I am sitting in the car waiting around for something! 

How is your three-month supply coming along?  Don't forget, you should store foods that you normally eat as a family.  That way nothing will go to waste since you will be eating (and rotating) it regularly.  Make a food storage plan and buy according to that.  Don't have time to create a list of food storage meals?  Check out our food storage e-book - we've done it all for you.  Or, look at our food storage recipes and come up with your own shopping list.

We are gathering wheat this month for our longer-term storage.  Don't know what to do with wheat?  Check out our food storage recipes.

One of the items I am considering leaving out of my food storage is evaporated milk. It has such a short shelf life. I don't mind using it up in quiches, but I don't want to eat that much quiche.
It's okay in yogurt, but not great.

The powdered milk is not a problem. We use it for everything except straight up drinking, so we don't buy as much fresh milk when it comes time to rotate.

Do you store evaporated milk? IF you do, how do you keep it rotated?
