Anyone know any food storage cookbooks? : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

We bought a year's supply of food last spring and have it nicely tucked away (and we expect to need it next year for sure) but I realized the other day that I have no experience in cooking with stored foods. Is there a food storage cookbook that will tell me how to make meals that my family will actually want to eat, using the dehydrated and freeze-dried food we have?

At the risk of being accused of shameless self-promotion, I'll tell you there are several really good books on cooking with stored foods on the Food page of my website, Y2K Survive. If I have done the html code right, you can click on it . Otherwise, go to and click on the Food button at the top of the page. You can order online with a credit card and receive the book from Amazon in about three days, and at a considerable discount off the list price too.

Oh, well, I guess I didn't do the html code right. Here is the complete URL for Y2K Survive:

All three of the books are really good. Browse through and see what you think.

I've got a list of Y2K cookbooks at my webpage. I've obtained seven of them, and written reviews of most of those.

I second Ray's assessment about Cookin' With Home Storage. My wife has used a couple dozen recipes from that, and they were all yummy.


PS(Especially liked the chicken pot pie)

You might also try there are several books and some are brand new (just recently written this last month). by the way they will give you a 50% discount on all food items if you call the toll free number and give them the password "be prepared". I think they are doing that until the end of the month.

Try and Also Carol Hupping, _Stocking Up. The 3rd Edition of the Classic Prserving Guide_ (Fireside Books/Simon and Schuster, 1986). Great book, good recipes.

Look on eBay, they have hundreds of cookbooks. Did a quick search on "preserving food" and came up with a bunch.
