Dehydrating Didya know?

Did you know that a little over 5 lbs of veggies dried will fit into a quart mason jar? That is a lot of food in such a little space. Those were all frozen veggies that went directly from the freezer, out of the bag and into the dehydrator. Now I have a yummy mix of carrots, corn, broccoli, green beans and sweet peas in a mason jar.

Oh, and they were a dollar for a 1 lb bag when I got them.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! (Post Update!)

Hey guys, I just wanted to write a quick post and say Merry Christmas to all my readers. I know that I have not posted much the last several months or so. There have been a lot of real life issues going on in my personal life. None that I would really like to share online, but those few of you whom I have spoken privately, I think you would understand. Those of you that do know, I don't want that information posted. Not that I let that get in the way of my prepping, I just have slowed down a little bit. Stopped? Nope! Prepping is so much integrated into my life, it is normal for me to grab a few extra cans when canned food is on sale. That's just how I roll.

Oh and those orange buckets that I got from home depot several months back? FOOD STORAGE! As far as this blog, I will try to get an article up this week, even though I have said that before and failed miserably. I will have some projects coming up next year. Just wait!

Now I am off to go visit Momma and Papa Wolf. From my pack.. err... Family to yours, Merry Christmas!
