Now that you have started building your food storage do you know how to use the foods that you are storing?
Do you want to learn how to use your powdered milk to make cheese (mozzarella, ricotta, and cheddar) and yogurt?
Would you like to learn how to use your powdered milk in your homemade bread to add protein and to make magic mix which can be used to make sauces, puddings and cream of soups?
How would you like to learn to take your whole wheat and make different types of breads, cracked grain cereals, cookies, cakes, and salads?
Learning to can meat, vegetables, soups, cheese, pie fillings, jams and jellies would increase your food storage and provide variety to the meals that you serve your family?
For years I have been teaching my students how to make cheese. Other classes that I teach are how to bake bread, how to use sourdough, food dehydration, and meals in jars. I also teach canning and food fermentation.
This will be my 7th year teaching at Prepper Camp in Saluda, NC, the largest outdoor prepper experience in the U.S. I have taught for 6 years at Heritage Life Skills held in Waynesville, NC.
I am the author of “Grannie Pam’s Favorite Recipes”, “More of Grannie Pam’s Favorite Recipes”, “Grannie Pam’s Prepping With Big Flavors”, “More of Grannie Pam’s Prepping With Big Flavors”, “Grannie Pam’s I Love You More Than Soup”, “Grannie Pam’s Meals In A Jar”, “Grannie Pam’s Foods From My Kitchen”, and “Grannie Pam’s Kitchen”.
My grandparents brought me up. They were farmers. As a result, from an early age my grandmother taught me about gardening, canning, making bread and butter. When I got married I moved away from the farm but always enjoyed making food from scratch. Upon moving to a homestead I did the things I was taught by my grandmother.
Most of the people in my generation, and younger, don’t know how to cook from scratch. For instance, they don’t know how to do things like canning, making cheese, making bread. The idea of cooking a pot of dried beans is beyond them. Most of my friends use packaged foods from the grocery store. As a result, I felt that it was my mission to teach cooking the old way, from scratch.
Teaching my grandchildren basic cooking skills has been one of the greatest joys of my life. This joy has been transferred to my students. For instance there is nothing like the joy you see on the face of someone who has made their first cheese or their first loaf of bread. Their joy gives me joy.
