A Common Sense Approach to Food Storage

Food Storage
Food storage is essential for preparedness and self-sufficiency.

When I first became interested in prepping and homesteading, I read everything I could find on the subject of food storage. There is so much information out there on this subject. I became overwhelmed before I even got started. I am not a big fan of the food storage lists you see all over the internet because every family’s needs and situation are so different.

The Victorio Hand Operated Grain Mill: Review

If you have never made a loaf of bread with freshly ground flour, you are truly missing out! Not only do freshly ground flours taste amazing, but they retain more of their nutrients. Also, you can store whole grains much longer than flours. Having your own grain mill gives you the advantage of using different grains or even beans to make flours, which is perfect if you have allergies or gluten intolerance. The Victorio Hand Operated Grain Mill is an affordable way to get started with grinding your own flour. We love ours, and use it regularly for grinding grains, like wheat and oats, to make delicious homemade bread. We keep it clamped to the counter in our kitchen so that it is always ready to go. It does take some effort to grind the grains by hand, but I prefer to do it this way since no electricity is required. You can also purchase an electric motor for the Victorio Grain Mill, if you want to save yourself some time by being able to multitask and do other things while the grain is grinding.
