Cooking with Food Storage

For years I have searched out and experimented with recipes that used my food storage ingredients. Rotating and using my food storage has always been important to me. I was always taught that you should store what you use and use what you store. If you've had an ingredient in your food storage for a long time, you need to reconsider storing that item, or change your diet to include that item. Otherwise, it's just wasted money and space.

 

For years I stored #10 cans of beans and rice because they had lots of protein and stored well. However, I used less than 5 pounds a year. I realized that we did not use enough beans or rice in our diet so I went searching for recipes that used those ingredients and started to include those in family meals. Also, I found that we ate rice regulary, but I didn't use the rice in my food storage. It was easier to cook up a box of rice a roni than to use the food storage rice and get out all the spices, etc. So I started pre-mixing the ingredients in jars with my food storage rice, to make the weeknight cooking easier.

Cooking for One or Two

After my children moved out and were on their own, I spent some time changing my recipes to accomodate one or two servings. For several years, it was just me at home, so I reduced the amounts to one serving portions. The majority of my current recipes are portioned for two people. If you are cooking for just one, just put the leftovers in the freezer for reheating a month from now.

 

Food in Jars I've always enjoyed putting food in jars. It looks nice and is organized. There is nothing sacred about the jars, you can use, plastic containers, even zip lock bags. I just enjoy the jars. They are easy to stack, clean and appeal to my "OCD" tendancies.

Pre-made MIxes There are several books and websites out there dedicated to gifts in a jar. The majority of them are treats and desserts, because people like to give them as gifts. I went searching for meals or entrees in a jar. When I didn't find very many, I wrote some myself.
