    Morning all,

    I heard an ad on Coast to Coast last night that mentioned a website for DIY long term food preps. I wanted to take a look and see if it had any DIY freeze drying info.

    Did anyone catch the site? I thought it was something like US survival food, or American survival food, but neither are valid sites. I couldn't find it through a search engine either.

    Anyone?

    Thanks in advance.

    For long term DIY food preps, the best to learn is through your nearest LDS cannery, as for freeze drying of foods, this is a complex operation involving expensive vacuum chambers, DIY food preps that you can do in your own kitchen is canning and drying. Building a root cellear is also at the top of long term food preps.

    I have not had any luck speaking to the local cannery's to me. They don't want anyone using them that is not a LDS member.

    But i'm in a high density area.

    There are a lot of good books and info on the internet that can get you on the right track to canning and drying of perishable foods for long term storage, http://www.homecanning.com/ is one the best sites for canning, and this site for dryinghttp://www.uga.edu/nchfp/how/dry.html. There are certain safety percautions that have to be followed to prevent food poisoning, but this does not require an advanced education to carryout. Canning/drying has been done for a long time before modern refridgeration and what we now call grocery(junk food) stores came into being.

    Good info here.

    I was specifically looking for info on Freeze Drying though. We can and dehydrate now, but I love to tinker and make machines. I thought I'd look into freeze drying. If I made a setup, it would all be junk yard parts. I'm too cheap to do it expensively. :)

    Thanks.

    Sure. If you are already getting parts, you are well ahead of me. Do you have plans? So far, I've done nothing more than look up the rough process. I was totally clueless until about a week ago.

    Feel free to PM me.
