Now that you’ve started storing food for long-term use, you may be wondering what you’re going to make with some of the things you have.
Many foods that store well long-term are unprocessed whole foods that your family may not be used to eating. It is important to slowly acclimate your palates and stomachs to whole foods if you do not usually eat them.
This helps to reduce any negative effects that may come due to a drastic change in diet when you need to exist on only what you have stored.
In the coming weeks, we will provide you with some food storage recipes that we’ve found. You should try these out. Find out what your family likes or hates. If they like it, store more of those foods. If they hate it, you may not need to worry about storing those ingredients.
