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


  1. I used to make popcorn when I would watch the late night movies, this was more than 20 years ago long before cable was available. That will be one of the things people will miss if there is an emergency situation for a long time. I suggest you read Lights Out by Ted Koppel. He was the host of Nightline for many years. You may be able to get it from the library.

  2. Another thing I'm doing with my phone is I just got a phone with 32 Gigabites and am downloading a ton of apps that I couldn't on my other phone. Many are trivia, bingo, yatzy, Solitaire and those are just some of the games. I downloaded book apps, books on survival and craft apps because what are you going to do on those long Winter nights without TV, YT, FB etc? I don't even have children or grandchildren, I'm still preparing for those long lonely evenings when I'll need to do something to keep from going crazy. I'm planning ahead for the future. I hope this helps someone.
