     Many folks within the preparedness community practice some level of self reliance at different levels by raising various live stock, planting gardens, etc. However, even if you find yourself in a situation where you're unable to do any of these things, there are still several steps you can take to prepare your most common daily foods for long term storage. Outside buying canned food for the grocery store, there are three main ways of storing food long term, so that it remains shelft stable and safe to eat:

1) Dry Food Storage (Mylar Bags & Buckets)

2) Water Bathing

3) Pressure Canning

While freezing serves as a mid-term option for some foods, it requires a lot of freezer space and of course, electricity. So we will focus on storage methods that are "grid down" friendly.
