I was just today shopping at the good ol value village and saw this book called Cooking With Stored Foods by Carlene Tejada and Carroll Latham. It contains great tips on storing foods and cooking stored foods. It lists also the shelf life of stored foods and there are diagrams for gravity fed can storage systems. I got it for ninety nine cents but your readers can find it on amazon.com for as little as $0.67 [plus postage]. God bless and many prayers for the loss of your Memsahib – Eric L
JWR Replies: Thanks for that recommendation. Another book on using storage foods that I consider a must is Making the Best of Basics – Family Preparedness Handbook by James Talmage Stevens. I heard that the 11th edition is about to be released.
