My Prepper Pantry Comfort Food Edition

Today, at the Dollar Tree I was able to find the Duncan Hines Perfect Size for 1 Value Pack 10 individual packages. These normally are price at the Walmart 5.48 per package. I paid $1.00 each and bought 4. A savings of $17.92.  These savings allow me to spend that money in other preps. Additionally, they only require 3 table spoons of water to cook. 

When we think of Prepping we think of Water, Food, Medicine, and a means of self defense. However, we often forget in high stress situations/lean times comfort foods/items will give you and those around a boost in morale. Comforts foods/items can be sweets, hearty stews, home made breads, coffee, wine just as an example. Give your Pantry and Food Supply a quick peek and see if you have any comfort foods/ or items you may need to add.

My Prepping Today

I bought several of these Jolly Time Yellow Pop Corn Kernel bags from the Dollar Tree. I want to save these for long term use. Corn Kernels are considered a Almost Forever Food. All you have to do is place them in a glass jar then keep them in a cool dry place. These Do Not Need Oxygen Absorber(s). They need to retain their moisture in order to pop. Oxygen absorbers will deplete their moisture and will make them only good for home decor.

I like to re-use glass jars I have saved from sauces, salad dressings, pickles, jelly jars, etc.. These are very useful and economical for long term storage. Make sure they are clean and dry. Glass jars work great for pop corn kernels, rice, salt, sugar, pasta, and the list goes on and on. 
How to cook these corn kernels. Personally, I found a Whirley Popper in a thrift store several months ago in like new condition. This will work great with my Popcorn Kernels you add different flavors/spices to customize your treat. There are several other ways to cook these up. Here is a link to the Pioneer Woman and her secrets to popping corn
