‘Meat’ Your Family’s Needs by Stockpiling

Many centuries before machinery handled processes such as dehydrating and freeze-drying food, there was only one way to create “survival meat.”

Ancient Peruvian Incas of the Andes preserved meat by storing it on mountain peaks. The temperatures would freeze the food. And low air pressure in these high altitudes would slowly vaporize water inside the food.

Centuries later, Native Americans preserved meat by stretching it out on the ground. There the meat would dry by absorbing the sun’s rays. This made it last much longer. 

Today, we don’t have to climb mountains or place meat in the sun to make survival meat. But if we want to ensure we have meat for ourselves and our families in the future, there is something we need to do.

Why, how, and when

And that “something” is stockpiling meat. Why? I’ll get to that in a moment. How? I’ll get to that at the end. When? Now. What better time to take stock of your emergency food supply than the start of a new year?

As to the “why,” I’m sure you’re painfully aware how high meat prices have gone lately. And I doubt if they’ll get any lower in the near future.

There’s also the availability issue. You’re going to hear much more about this from me in a couple of days. Suffice it to say there could be a major meat availability issue on the horizon. And it involves the United Nations. 

Meat provides protein like few other food sources do. Making sure you have plenty of real meat containing real protein for the future should be one of your top priorities.

Variety is the spice of life

Of course, meat isn’t the only food item you should store up for a rainy day. Putting together a stockpile of a wide variety of food items is important.

Non-perishable foods with shelf lives of several years or more is what you should focus on. This could take a variety of forms, including canned food and large containers of grains and rice.

Even better would be foods that are freeze-dried or dehydrated slowly because they will last much longer.

Variety is essential for a couple of reasons. One, you don’t want your family to experience appetite fatigue during a crisis. Two, you’ll all get a psychological lift from not having to eat the same thing every day. 

Make a meal plan

Before you make your food purchases, including meat, create a list of meals you want to prepare with your stockpile. And make sure they are meals your family will actually eat.

Once you’ve finished that list, you’ll know exactly which ingredients to buy and in what quantities.

In addition to meat and other food items for that stockpile, purchase plenty of shelf-stable foods that will provide quick energy and nutrition. 

If you keep at it, you’ll soon find yourself with enough food to last you for several months or more. But you still want to make sure you have freeze-dried and dehydrated food that will last much longer. We never know how long a crisis will last.

Canned meat is a good backup

Let’s get back to our main focus – meat. I strongly recommend stocking up on meat with a long shelf life. But there’s nothing wrong with also having a supply of canned meat in your pantry. 

There may be times when you want something quick that provides protein and iron for energy. And you don’t want to open a survival meat pouch.

Many different kinds of meat come in cans. They include ground beef, roast beef, and pork. Plus chicken, ham, and turkey. As well as sausage, and corned beef hash. 

The taste won’t be quite the same as fresh meat or freeze-dried survival meat. And there is likely to be a high sodium content. But canned meat will suffice now and then.

Not just for emergencies

And while it’s a good idea to keep your survival meat separate from your canned meat, it’s OK to dip into that survival meat when you need to. Such as during a storm and or when you’re just too tired to head out to the store. 

In fact, this might serve as a confidence builder. You’ll remember how good it tastes and you’ll look forward to enjoying it when you really need it.

Just make sure you re-stock any survival meat you use between now and when an emergency situation strikes.

That way you’ll never let your stockpile dip below what you’ve designated as proper for your family. Whether that’s three months, six months, a year, or more.
