This week's food storage items are:
October Week 3: Apples -- applesauce, apple butter, dried apples, apple pie filling etc.
Couldn't be easier. If you and your family eat apple sauce, estimate how much you will eat in the coming year, and either buy it or can it. Same goes with the apple slices. I like to can the dried apple slices at the Family Home Storage Cannery. They last for 30+ years, so they seem like a good thing to have around for those long-term emergencies. And since I'm still experimenting with drying my own apple-pears, I should be able to have some of those on my shelf also. If you use any other apple product, think about how much of that item you may need in a year's time, and write it down.
Make your shopping list of what you will need to complete this week's items, and in the next couple of days, get to the store. Once you have the items on your shelves, update the inventory sheet, and voila! You've got another good week under your belt.
Now, you may be saying to yourself that you and your family wouldn't eat apple sauce or apples slices, or any other apple food. If that's the case, then you will have this week to catch up on any weeks you haven't quite finished.
