Pioneering Today: Faith and Home the Old Fashioned Way, Melissa K. Norris

Do you know what the term” Pioneering Today” means? Want to know more about true heirloom gardening?   How can busy people still cook real food from scratch? Can this lifestyle cost you less money? Get tips for getting started, as well as what foods to store in large quantities.

This week’s Secrets of a Survivalist radio show talks to Melissa K. Norris, author, speaker, and radio show host. Her books and articles are inspired by her family’s small herd of beef cattle, and forays into quilting and canning (without always reading the directions first). She practices the skills passed down for generations through her family, including their own strain of heirloom green bean seed, and teaches others how to implement the best of the pioneer lifestyle into their modern lives.

Video: Endless Hot Water without Electricity

The aim of pursuing a self-reliant lifestyle is to incorporate the richness of our natural world into the joys of living…even in our modern age. Comforts of technology should be had in moderation…and in near-zero temperatures, moderation should be had in quantities, as in available hot water off-grid style.

Eat Well Off the Grid with Grannie Pam

When the grid goes down, how do you keep from eating storage food that tastes like crap? How do you keep beans and rice from getting “monotonous”, and still provide nourishing, wholesome meals without food fatigue?

Well, you don’t have to give up good tasting meals, just because you are in a disaster situation. And just because you are using food stores, that is no excuse for serving your family meals with poor flavors.

Meet Grannie Pam, expert in food preparation, canning, dehydration, and food storage who has written a new cook book specifically for Preppers called:  Grannie Pam’s Prepping With Big Flavors.

Find out how long home canned foods last; how to make cheese from powdered milk; and all the wonderful things you can make with just basic sourdough starter, yogurt and vinegar! Find out how you can make food out of all your stored flour and wheat berries, when the store bought yeast runs out.

And find out why prepper food doesn’t just have to be for a catastrophe- it’s about being frugal and saving money right now!
