Food Preservation – A Survivalist’s Guide
By: Jacob Hunter
Our grandparents used to spend their weekends canning veggies from their garden, smoking meat (often from game they caught themselves), and making real pickles.
Today, we have mostly lost this knowledge.
Even in the era of mega supermarkets, there are a lot of reasons to learn how to preserve your own food:
You want to stockpile emergency food for disaster preparedness.
You are homesteading and want to keep your surplus.
You want food without additives and preservatives.
You can buy food in bulk when it is cheap in order to save money.
Or simply because of the great personal satisfaction which comes with learning old skills and becoming more self-sufficient.

This guide is meant to help you get started with DIY food preservation so you can choose the right methods for your goals.
