Cookin' with Home Storage
This book has lots of cool charts and jummy foods where you wouldn't even know that it was from a can. My favorite is cooking with powdered eggs. It tastes so good,I really enjoy the converstion tip too. Try it for your self. I am more than sure you will love this book.
I was very disappointed with this book because many of the recipes are inaccurate and incomplete. I have even called the author for clarification of a recipe but she would not respond. It seems like she had a lot of her friends submitt recipes for the book but did not really try the recipes herself, to see if they were complete and easy to follow.
It was a well written book
excellent information source!
I was really curious to see this book after seeing the disparity in the online reviews. This is an excellent source of information-- packed with interesting recipes, some of which purport to be (and sound as if they might be) from the pioneers. It certainly provides a wide selection of dishes and goodies to make using long-term storage foods such as whole grains, dried milk, dehydrated fruits and vegetables, etc. There are, however, enough recipes that don't use these foods to justify purchasing the book to add to your cookbook collection, even if you don't store dried foods. Okay, so it's poorly edited. There are asterisks that don't seem to refer to anything, numerous spelling and grammatical errors, and apparent omissions. But these don't render the book unusable. The reader will need to work around them. The author appears to assume that the reader can already cook. It certainly isn't a book for the novice in the kitchen! I'd recommend that the reader carefully read any recipe before trying it, considering whether it makes sense or whether there might be some omissions. In addition to the very interesting recipes, the book has useful information on emergency substitutions, reconstituting dried foods, quantities to store, and survival foods (what's out there in the wild that you can eat in a pinch). All in all, I'd say it's a great addition to your cookbook library, very reasonably priced, an interesting read, and a must-have if you're into long-term food storage--definitely worth the investment!
