Must Have Kitchen Items for Off The Grid or Preppers
November 26, 2012
After using old fashioned kitchen tools I have a new respect for the women
and men that cooked on wood stoves or over camp fires in times past. Sometimes getting back to the basics takes more time and effort without electric appliances. Many people are collecting these non electric kitchen gadgets
once again. Back to the basics cooking from scratch is becoming popular again as away to save money and feeding their family healthier food.

October 02, 2012
Regardless of how many #10 cans of “just-add-water-ready-to-eat” stuff you

list of 38 essential kitchen items for any survivalist.
When you are ready to deal with cooking real foods, here are some things

When the SHTF, most people in this world are going to be in trouble. We have become too dependent on all the convenient gadgets that help us in every aspect of our lives. The kitchen is not the only place where these gadgets dominate our lives, but this is the area that this article covers.
I have many of my grandmother's and granny's utensils from years ago that I have come to treasure over time. Yes, some of them most likely need replaced with a newer version but I hate to take them out of service. Every time I use them my mind races with memories of learning a certain recipe or trick or tip from that person. The cook book that is linked "Forgotten Skills of Cooking: The Time-Honored Ways are the Best - Over 700 Recipes Show You Why" looks very interesting and can't wait to order it.
As for comment, "regardless of how many #10 cans of ", I believe that every family should be prepared with food storage. I agree that every family needs to know how to cook and survive without those food preps. But using Thrive food, doesn't mean just add water and eat. Most of our products are made to cook with in your every day cooking. And I'm praying that SHTF will never happen, but I am realist and know that disasters will happen such a job loss, weather related incidents etc... so every family should have some preparations stocked piled.
As for the items listed below, it is a great starting point!
1. Besides the matches, everyone should know how to start a fire without the luxury of matches...it may be with a magnifying glass or two sticks or multiple other ways.
2. Manual can openers and a P-38 are a must if opening a can.
3. A manual wheat grinder is my biggest hold up in my prepping! I have my electric wheat grinder and love it, this is one gadget that I depend on and dread living without. Fresh wheat flour...awesome! I haven't taken the plunge and bought a manual one as of yet! (Hint Hint...to my loving husband...this would be a wonderful x-mas present. Yes, I often ask for such items for x-mas....I would rather have this than jewelry.
Purchase any Thrive products and save.......

when wet it can produce a spark that is bright enough to be used as an emergency
signal. Originally developed for the Swedish Department of Defense,Swedish
FireSteel is a flash of genius. Used by a number of armies around the world, Swedish FireSteel’s dependability has already made it a favorite of survival experts, hunters, fishermen
and campers. It has also found its way into cabins and backyards as a fool-proof way to light stoves and gas-barbecues.
These waterproof matches are a must for any emergency kit. Both the box
and striking surface are treated with a waterproof sealant. The 25 matches
