I decided to try out preparing my own food storage. I started with eggs, jerky, sugar, flour and oatmeal.
For the eggs, I started with 36 eggs, added salt, pepper, and milk and mixed with a blender. I then took two large pans and cooked the eggs. I put the cooked eggs in the dehydrator and left them for 12 hours (which may have been too long).
For the the jerky, I placed the cut strips of beef roast overnight in a marinade made of seasonings and vinegar. I then put the marinated beef in the dehydrator for 18 hours.
I then vacuum sealed the eggs, jerky and the rest of the items (sugar, flour, & oatmeal). The intent is to make sure the food isn’t exposed to water or air. I plan on continuing to experimenting until there is no time left to prepare… Which I hope never happens.
