2023 Preparedness Food Storage - Week 16: Vegetables

Week 16: Food Storage

It’s veggie time again. I know it seems you are accumulating lots of cans, and you are.

I watched a video about food storage a few years ago, and it was good except that they commented they use fresh fruits and vegetables, and sure enough, they did not have any stored on their shelves. This is a huge mistake. Fruits and vegetables play a critical role in maintaining good health.

Remember the liquid in the cans will also be a great blessing during a time when power may be out and thus water unsafe or unavailable. Think of creative ways to rotate your vegetables. I like to puree them and sneak them into meatloaf, meatballs, soup broth, and even sauces. If you are cooking peanut sauce or barbecue sauce, for example, grated carrots and zucchini will cook down or canned vegetables can be added, and no one will know they are there. Simply blend your sauce with an immersion blender and you are good to go.

This week store 10 cans or five one-pound packages of frozen vegetables per family member.
