Be Prepared - November

How did you all do last month in collecting fuel items? I did surprising well. I scored big at my local dollar store!
I found all of this at the dollar store!

I know November’s preparedness list is little late in getting out.
This month’s Food Storage items are Beans and Lentils.
Beans become a big staple in most food storages, because they are cheap. There are 2 ways to store beans, either dry canning or pressure canning them. I’ve personally done the pressure canning way with my MIL. We did okay for our first time but now we know what not to do the next time. More water less beans!! haha
You can buy the beans already canned for you either dry or wet. Emergency Essentials has the beans and legumes on sale this month. I know a lot of people like to buy the big 5 gallon bucket of beans, just remember when you open it you need to use it or you might be able to re-can them.
I’m not a very big fan of lentils, maybe because I had really bad experience as a kid with them, Bleh! But you might like lentils.
Here is a recipe using your food storage veggies and lentils to make a Greek Lentil Soup
Have fun collecting all sorts of beans! I will try to get a few of my favorite bean recipes up this month to share.
Here is the full November file to print out.
