Down the Rabbit Hole.
“Wyrd biõ ful ãræd.”
not that we get hurricanes like the US, I sure am getting ready for the next natural disaster. even down to I know that no farmer is going to be able to plant for a long time in such wet soil. So I am buying flour that is on offer so we have enough till not this harvest the one after, to make our own bread and a couple of sacks of chapatti flour also. they are quick and easy to make
Sol, how are you storing your flour? Three things that I have had go bad on me in my long term storage were corn meal, powdered milk, and white wheat flour. All of those were in nitrogen flushed mylar bags in pails, but when I opened them, they were only fit to feed to the animals. Chappti are little buns they make in India, right? I remember that "passing the Chappti" from Sepoy to Sepoy preceded the mutiny if I have the words right in my head.
store flour in the freezer. chapatti's are flat breads the same as a tortilla but different flour
The freezer would work. Mines full of stuff already though. You English people have lots of food from India, I remember from visiting London you could get exotic things like curry. Exotic to us, anyway. I don't remember seeing that many Indians, though.
and here I am, a sucker for magazines that look like that and books that talk about it. It keeps me reading a couple of books and magazines a week.That reminds me, backwoods home just showed up with the last two issues since I renewed.and I have about 10 new books to read....hmm.
Better to have more than you can read than not enough. I like magazines, strangely enough I enjoy the advertisements as much as the articles most of the time. It keeps me up to speed on what's new out there, because my place tends to be 1999 frozen in time. I'm not really cognizant of improvements to off grid systems or new equipment unless I can root out an article in a publicatin.
