I had an opportunity to review a copy of Food Storage for Self-Sufficiency and Survival by Angela Paskett.
I like the way the book is organized, with a separate chapter covering food needs for 72 hours, short term emergencies (two weeks to three months) and long term emergencies (three months or longer). There are more sections dealing with water storage, preserving, packing dry foods for long term, maintaining balance, sustainable food storage, organizing and using your food storage. In short, this book covers everything you need to know about storing food.
If you are just starting out with your food storage plan, then you are fortunate to have this guide, but if you already have some food stored, you can still find a lot of good ideas. With this book you will also learn to make the most out of your food storage, avoid waste and use your storage to save money and time. For example, there is a section on what to do with oil that has gone past its edible prime. The book also covers how food storage can actually improve your financial situation as you get through some lean months.
I found a lot of ideas on how I can improve my own food storage plan. The author gives practical steps that anyone can implement right away. I highly recommend this book.
