Food Storage Cooking
The best way to use food storage products is to substitute them into your regular recipes as best as you can. The following recipes have been long time favorites of our family that have been adapted to using food storage products. Although our motto is still “fresh is best”, our family enjoyed these dishes just as much using alternate products. If an emergency arises I want to be able to prepare simple foods that rely on the one-pot concept in order to simplify and conserve energy by utilizing basic foods such as grains and beans I have on hand, and reducing my dependence on refrigerator items such as meats.

Ham/Green Bean Soup

2 C. dehydrated beans (approx. 4 cups fresh)
2 C. dried potato dices (3 C. fresh)
1 C. dried minced onion
1 tsp. dried summer savory
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1-2 C. diced turkey ham or TVP Bacon
8 C. water

Bring all ingredients except TVP to a boil; reduce heat to simmer, covered for
20 minutes or until veggies are tender and flavors are blended. (To save time
and energy bring to pressure in Duromatic for 5 minutes and remove from heat.)
Stir in: 1 C. milk (or cream) optional
Adjust liquids and seasonings to make a pleasing combination.
