I guess most of you know that Mars and I are staying with our friends Mushroom and her husband Bud for awhile. What you might NOT know is that they are both a virtual well of information. She and Bud (her hubby) have been into prepping for many years and are happy to share the things that they have learned along the way.
She is a wonderful teacher as well. I love just sitting down and talking with her about most anything. It fascinates me be able to "pick her brain" about all sorts of things.
One of the things she is a whiz with is food storage and most anything related to it. Gardening, herbal remedies and uses, canning, dehydrating, nutrition, preserving foods... Well you get the idea. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
She and her husband both have alot of allergies and medical problems that make cooking both an adventure and a challenge at times. In the year or more that I have known her, both online and off, I have learned tons and tons of really useful information.
Now if you are wondering why in the world I am going on and on about all this is because I have been talking with her about an idea I have been kicking around for a while now. Why not share with others some of the things that she has learned over the years? I'm so excited that she agreed to do it!
We will be posting recipe's that you can make from your own food storage. We will also try to toss in tips and tricks about how to "take care of" the foods you store. I think it will be alot of fun and we will do it until we run out of things to write about!
If you have any questions for Mushroom, please leave them in the comment section and I will do my best to make sure we can find the answers. I think it's going to be alot of fun. So be sure to check out Mushroom's Mondays and let me know what you think.
