Food Stores

I have a bad habit when in my local grocery of grabbing extra rice for my food stores. I'll sometimes buy a ten or twenty pound bag. When home I stash it away and forget about it. Not a good habit.

A few days I ago, while searching for some item or the other, I bent to look in a cabinet we seldom if ever use and imagine my surprise when I found over a hundred pounds of rice stuffed inside. Out came the maylar bags and five gallon buckets with lids, and my smooth and well worn 2x4. After stealing my Sweet Wife's new iron I sealed 125 pounds of pure starch.

This rice should last least thirty plus years. I will not bore you with the step by step details, after all, you have the web, and YouTube is packed with videos on this subject. If you need me to explain why you should be stocking your home to the rafters with food, you're reading the wrong blog. Wake up.

Above, two pictures of the process. It's easy, try it.

When you have your food preps in order perhaps it would be a good idea to learn how to cook it when that 'day' arrives.

Have a great weekend.


Thank You and Welcome

Your comments are important to me. In my part of country a personal reply is nothing more than good manners.
