A few weeks ago, I was passing some time rummaging around a thrift store when I came across a good find.
What was it?
It was just an old cookbook.
Why was it such a good find?
In it, I found all kinds of recipes for cooking things such as basic breads, different kinds of game, and other recipes that could really be useful in a grid-down or homesteading situation. Many of these recipes are somewhat lost for most people now, and many are not typically found in today’s cookbooks since most people just buy their basic foods at the store.
However, just as I said in my post last week, one who wishes to be prepared should not always count on being able to go to the market. Ideally, one should make the effort to gather basic recipes now when it is much easier to do so rather than waiting for a disastrous event to occur. Collecting old cookbooks can be a great way to start. They can be found just about everywhere, and they can be purchased for dirt cheap. (I think I only paid a dollar for mine.)
In any case, old cookbooks can be another resource you may wish to add to your prepper library.
Now is the time since it’s possible that you may not have the time to prepare later.
