Re: August 2017 - What Did YOU Do To Prep this Week/Month?

The heat has been brutal this week - triple digit heat index :'( Despite that I've been sweating my butt off picking and processing muscadine grapes! (5) half pints of jelly, (5) half pints of jam & (4) quarts of juice blend I think there's enough to probably do 2 more batches of jam. The scuppe...

Re: Benefits of Vinegar???

One big thing he gave up was "leaded" Mountain Dew. He drinks a diet Dew a few times a week now. Otherwise he drinks water or I make some cold brewed tea with a little honey. People don't realize how many calories they're drinking from sugar. We have cut out rice, pasta and potatoes. Even ...

Re: Benefits of Vinegar???

Re: Well, are you stocking up??

We checked our propane tank and we are still at 80% - haven't used much since topping off a few months back (plus it's been so hot, causing expansion). Also going to refill some gas cans we rotate - were waiting for a pack of replacement caps. As we rotate our stash we refill when we get about 5 emp...

Re: August 2017 - What Did YOU Do To Prep this Week/Month?

We have picked grapes twice - about 4 pounds. Processed juice yesterday and didn't get quite enough to make a batch of jelly. Will pick more this evening. Bought more half pint jars for jelly and jam making as we want to keep our extra jar stockpile untouched in the barn. Also a double pack of low s...

Re: Well, are you stocking up??

Also, it would be wise to consult your physician about possible side effects of KI pills before they are needed.

Re: Well, are you stocking up??

We bought our KI pills from Amazon. They typically have a 6-7 year shelf life. If you receive older pills their expiry will be shorter - just like any other med. hubs said some drug stores may carry them. Daisy Luther at Organic Prepper has a good article today about potassium iodide- she has some p...

Re: August 2017 - What Did YOU Do To Prep this Week/Month?

August is usually a slower prep month as we concentrate on canning or the fall garden. The wild grapes are coming in so I canned some juice using a quick method I found on the Internet. Just uses a cup of grapes, 1/4 c sugar and boiling water per quart jar. Processed in WBC for 20 minutes. They need...

Re: Well, are you stocking up??

I did make a small trip to WM to restock a couple normal pantry items. Today hubs said he could see my concern and offered to drive me to Costco and Aldi just over an hour away. We restocked some canned items we had rotated out of our normal storage like fruit, chicken and tuna. Other than that we a...

Re: Benefits of Vinegar???

He does take turmeric, but he's been taking that for about 3 years. It was recommended by a fellow prepper with diabetes. I'll have to read up on the cinnamon. We have a lot stocked for all our oats.

Re: New guy in SC

Welcome! We just moved from the midlands to our homestead in rural Georgia. We go back often as we have 3 kids who live there.
Were you able to attend the Prepper event a few weeks back? My son has attended for a few years.

Re: Benefits of Vinegar???

Hubs has been taking a shot of Braggs ACV with a little water every evening. I think he read to do it at night and it doesn't make him get up in the night. His blood work is Monday. His doctor gave him 3 months to get his A1C down or he would have to get on meds. We are trying to avoid the meds with...

Re: The truth about Rice and Beans

Which ultimately is the answer....store what's best for you. We store a lot of pintos because it's one of the ones we like best. Have a friend who found a great deal on yellow beans...bought a whole bunch, having never tried them. My guess is they may have some gastro upset with an unfamiliar bean. ...

Re: Groups

We, too, have reached out to learn our new community. I agree that locals will reach out to connect with their neighbors when the time comes. Some folks don't believe in that and see locals as threats. I think it's to your advantage as a prepper or as a group to blend in to a certain degree with you...

Re: JULY 2017 - What Did You Do To Prep This Week/Month?

After the tomato canning marathon of July, we decided to purchase a SS canner. We may can outside next year and have 2 canners going. We joined COSTCO over the weekend and restocked a few preps. We had a SAMs membership in SC and it's been over a year since we shopped at a warehouse store. I also wr...
