My Interview on Survival Podcast

From # 10 Cans to Meals Ready to Eat!

I had the pleasure of of being a guest speaker on Survival Podcast. 
This was my first interview I found so much joy in sharing my method 
I have a great interview with Jennifer Ess of “Rainy Day Food Storage” for you today.  We only talked for about 25 minutes but the ideas and tips and simple formulas are great.  With this information you can turn all those huge cans of long term storage food into meal size ready to go recipes.
Jennifer joins us today to discuss why creating meals in a jar makes sense for busy people.  The self life of these meals.  The easy way to make these meals shelf stable.  A simple formula for creating your own recipes and how you guys can free sauce mixes and jar meal recipes from Jennifer.
I have also been getting a ton of “I am just starting out” or “I have just found your podcast” emails lately.  Such emails always go on to say “I am overwhelmed and don’t know where to start” in the next sentence.  It is totally understandable.
I have been trying to figure out where to fit in a new “getting started” episode and this is a great opportunity.  First Jennifer’s method of breaking down long term storage foods will make that far less intimidating for many people.  Additionally the very basic of “eat what you store and store what you eat” is a great way to get the ball rolling.
So I am leading off today with a short segment (about 25-30 minutes) on getting started and then we switch over to Jennifer and take this simple approach to a bit of a higher level with pre planned meals in a jar.  Oh and ladies, they really are pretty too.  I think I said pretty more times in this episode then all others episodes of TSP combine, um that would be two.

  1. Hi Jennifer,

    The interview on The Survival Podcast was the first time I heard of you. This is AWESOME! I am going to get my wife involved, and make some of these Jar Meals. I've bookmarked your blog onto my "daily read" list, too

  2. What an awesome idea. I was wondering if you had determined the price of your various recipes? Alternately, about how many 'cups' of material comes in a #10 Thrive can? Just trying to figure out economic feasability of the #10 cans and how their price relates to the price per meal for a family.

  3. Hello
