  • Garden Vegetable Soup with Chicken Gnocchi

    We’re pretty excited about our new Garden Vegetable Soup with Chicken Gnocchi recipe here at Emergency Essentials. It got rave reviews from the employees who sampled it and it’s the recipe featured on the cover of our January catalog.

    Imagine a rich, savory broth with bites of chicken and spinach, tomatoes, cauliflower, corn, potatoes, and green onion, punctuated with chewy, delicious butter-browned gnocchi (Italian potato dumplings). What could be more delicious for a warm winter’s meal?

    This recipe was made entirely from food storage and draws from our featured MyChoice Freeze-Dried Garden Vegetable Combo, on sale this month for only $23.99—as long as supplies last.] This combo consists of six small cans of Diced Potatoes, Cauliflower, Spinach, Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Corn.

    But what makes this soup hearty and delicious is the White Chicken from our Freeze-Dried Meats Favorites Combo, on sale this month for $189.99.

    Check out the recipe for this yummy soup on our recipes page

    Or you can find it on page 19 of our January Catalog.

    Bon Appétit!

  • This year, along with the traditional New Year’s resolutions like losing weight, eating less treats, or being more financially savvy, consider making some Emergency Preparedness Resolutions for 2014.

    Each Monday in January, we’re sharing our Preparedness New Year’s resolutions. If you’d like to make some Prepping Resolutions of your own, but don’t know where to start, borrow some of ours or use this series to get some ideas.

    This week we’re talking about Food/Water. Here is what our Emergency Essentials’ bloggers are doing to prepare in 2014.

    New Year’s Resolution Prepper Style: Food/Water

     

     Prepper Style New Year's Resolutions

     

    Sharon

    Since I have lots of basics such as beans, wheat, rice, pasta, and milk, and a few just-add-water entrées, I resolve to concentrate on fruits, vegetables, and meats. I know if I have a supply of such items as sausage crumbles, ground beef and chicken, I can combine them with other ingredients to make lots of different meals. The freeze-dried fruits I’ve tried have been absolutely delicious, both as snacks right out of the can and rehydrated, so I know I’ll want plenty of those. My favorites so far are the Blueberries, Peach Slices, and Cinnamon Apple Slices. Yumm!

    Realizing that our water supply is pretty old, I resolve to change it out this year and be sure it’s fresh and usable. I plan to get a new siphon hose and bung opener to help with this task.

    Sarah

    My food storage is getting a bit of extra attention this year. I’ve got a smattering of random food storage items I’ve picked up over the years, so this month I’m going to sit down, enter what I’ve got into the Food Storage Analyzer, and determine what I need. I know I’m missing a lot of the basics like wheat, honey, and powdered milk, and I really want to have a food supply that’s nutritionally balanced and that includes food I love. So I’ll be taking a good look at my Food Storage Analyzer results and watching for sales on the items that will fill in the caloric and nutritional gaps I’ve got in my supply.

    As far as water goes, I’m focusing more on storage and purification than filtration this year. I’ve already got a Katadyn Vario microfilter that I love, so my basic filtration needs are met. I also have a 160-gallon Water Reserve… that’s totally empty. So this month I’m pulling out the hose (even though it’s COLD outside) and filling up my Reserve. I’m also grabbing a few packets of MicroPur tablets so I have something available that will kill any microorganisms in the water sources I come across (since many viruses are too small for microfilters to catch).

    Angela

    Um, my resolution is to actually get and store a supply of food and water . . . My husband and I have a couple of cans stored, but I realize those few cans won’t last us for long. I’ve been thinking about what type of cook I would be in an emergency and have decided that I would be an MRE/Mountain House Pouch kind of girl—just add water or just eat straight out the pack. So for my New Year’s resolution, I’d like to gather and store more MREs and Mountain House pouches, but I’d also like to get a couple of #10 cans to make food for special occasions (and for when we get tired of the MREs) during an emergency.

    I’d also like to get a water filter like the Katadyn Hiker to take on camping and hiking trips during the summer.

    Kim

    This year, my family is going to build out our food storage, which, as of now, is no where near where it should be. We want to add #10 cans and MyChoice cans of our favorite meals to our emergency supply and begin incorporating them into our menu. The first few food storage items I want to add to my pantry are Mountain House Sweet and Sour Pork with Rice , Mountain House Diced Chicken , Provident Pantry Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken, and Yoders Bacon.

    We will also be adding a 15 gallon water barrel to our pantry to help us store water in case of an emergency where we are unable to access clean water. Along with the barrel, we’ll add a siphon hose—I mean, we have to have a way to get our water from the barrel to our table.

  • It’s a new year, a whole new stretch of opportunities, and the season for newfound motivation. Whether you’re a gung-ho resolution-keeper or, um, not (be honest, did you go to the gym much after January?), it’s a great time to think about your family’s preparedness goals. And our January sales can make it even easier to meet those goals! Here are just a few of the great deals going on this month, broken down oh-so-helpfully by prepper philosophy.

    For the "Bare Minimum" Prepper

    You’re tough, you fly solo, and you’ve been known to survive for weeks at a time on Ramen and Cocoa Puffs. However, it has occurred to you that Cocoa Puffs might be scarce in a disaster. Get started with the basics this month:

    Stormproof matches and case ($18.00 value, now $5.69)

    • A basic tool, like the High Uinta Gear 13-Function Pocket Knife ($6.95 value, now $2.99);

    • Some duct tape  ($2.50 value, now $1.99), and you’re practically McGyver.

    • Throw in a can of Peanut Butter Powder  for protein ($16.75 value, now $13.39), (and you can last right through the zombie apocalypse.)

    January Sale Item: Peanut Butter Powder

    “Slow and Steady Wins the Race”

    You’ve been building up your stash of food and gear for a while now, and you've decided this is the year to fill in the gaps. For example, all that freeze-dried lasagna looks great, but won’t let you get particularly creative in the kitchen. Stock up on those few items you always seem to forget about, like:



    Shortening Powder ($12.75 value, now $11.49, or $10.99 if you buy 6+)



    SAF-Instant Premium Yeast  ($4.95 value, now $3.99).



    • Don’t forget the Champion Lid Lifter for those big bins ($14.95 value, now $12.99).

    January Sale Item: Champion Lid Lifter

    “Go Big or Go Home”

    This is it. This is the year you finally get prepared. You’re going to do it, and you’re going to do it right. Are you ready? We’re ready.

    MRE One-Year Food Supply  ($7647.00 value, now $4099.99). 750+ lbs of food; breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks; even vegetarian options, if you get really crazy with your New Year’s resolutions.



    Kelly Kettle Stainless Steel Base Camp Combo (MSRP$132.92, now $114.95). Get a kettle and a cook set. Boil water and make meals. Be prepared and be awesome.

    Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Super Pack  ($139.88 value, now $119.99). Never be without power for all those devices you couldn’t live without in an emergency. ‘Cuz, I’m sorry, but not playing Angry Birds is simply not an option.

    January Sale Item: Goal Zero Guide 10 Plus Super Pack

     

    Bam. Did you see how we did that? Yeah.

    Whatever your preparedness goals are this year, get started the right way by saving tons of money with our January sale. Happy January!

  • Stacey's Double Apple Crisp

    At our house, Christmas celebrations revolve around traditional treats that different family members have been perfecting for decades. My mom’s pie crust is legendary. My dad’s truffles, fudge, toffee, and peanut brittle are requested annually. In recent years, we’ve added my husband’s mouth-watering peppermint-chocolate-chocolate-chip cookies and a friend’s grandmother’s recipe for old English boiled cranberry pudding We do manage a dinner in there somewhere, but if I’m honest, our holiday is basically a sweet fest.

    My job is baking. The breads, the cookies, the cobblers all fall to me, which suits me just fine (me, who couldn’t find my way around a candy thermometer if my life depended on it!). The only problem is that from mid-November onward, I end up having to make semi-weekly pilgrimages to the grocery store just to stay stocked up on eggs, butter, and brown sugar—not to mention the fresh fruit and cream that I only ever need in miniscule portions and which spoil after five minutes in my fridge. But this year, I found a secret weapon!

    Are you ready?

    I don’t think you’re ready.

    Okay, fine. It’s egg powder. Seriously, I have a pumpkin bread recipe that calls for six eggs. Do you know how fast I go through those huge cartons? But already this month I’ve made pumpkin bread, sugar cookies, and two batches of gingerbread, and I haven’t even made a dent in my can of egg powder. I love it! And it makes me think I should be raiding my food storage for other basics, and maybe even the not-so-basics.

    In that spirit, I want to share with you one of my favorite seasonal treats. I found this fantastic apple crisp recipe years ago and have been tinkering with it every winter until it’s become, quite simply, the best thing ever. And it can be made almost entirely out of food storage items! Good to know you could still have luxuries like apple crisp, even in the midst of a crisis. Bon appétit!

     A Dish Of Apple Crisp made from Food Storage

    Stacey’s Double Apple Crisp

    1 ½ cups Provident Pantry White Flour

    2 cups Provident Pantry Regular Rolled Oats

    2-3 tsp MyChoice Premium Cinnamon

    1 tsp ground nutmeg

    1 tsp ground cloves

    1 ½ cups packed Provident Pantry Brown Sugar 

    1 ½ cups (3 sticks, or 24 tbsp) reconstituted Provident Pantry Butter Powder

    6-8 cups reconstituted Provident Pantry Freeze-Dried Cinnamon Apple Slices

     

    1.      Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)

    2.      Combine flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and brown sugar. Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly (this works best with fingers!)

    3.      Put half the mixture into a 9x13 baking dish and pat down.

    4.      Cover crumb mixture with reconstituted apple slices, then sprinkle apples with remaining crumb mixture.

    5.      Bake for 45-50 minutes. Serve hot. Top with ice cream.

    Um…I might need to go make this right now.

  • Favorite Holiday Meal

    Favorite Holiday Meal

    My husband’s siblings live in our general area, so on Christmas afternoon our family tradition takes us all to my brother’s home for a pot-luck holiday meal. His family, with a few dollars contributed by each of us, provides a ham and a turkey. The rest of us bring the trimmings—rolls, salads, relish plates, potatoes, vegetables, and desserts. These can vary from year to year, but here are some favorites:

    Sour Cream Party Potatoes—(known locally as “Funeral Potatoes” because they’re so often included at after-funeral luncheons!): Shredded cooked potatoes  baked with Cream of Chicken Soup, sour cream, green onions (optional) and grated cheese, topped with a crunchy layer of crushed cereal or potato chips. (See recipe below)

    Cranberry Orange Relish: chopped fresh cranberries; ground orange with some peel, sugar, and nuts; mixed into a black cherry or raspberry gelatin base. It tastes like Christmas!

    Green Bean Casserole—the usual combination of green beans (fresh-cooked, frozen, canned, or reconstituted freeze dried) mixed with French’s Fried Onions and some Cream of Mushroom Soup. Some folks add cheese, others slivered almonds or mushrooms. A delicious variation is fresh-cooked asparagus bites with Cream of Asparagus Soup.

    Raisin Sauce for Ham—a slightly thickened sauce of ham drippings, pineapple juice, and brown sugar, with a few plumped raisins to spoon over sliced ham.

    Butter-browned Parsnips—parsnips peeled and cut like carrot sticks, boiled a few minutes until just tender, then lightly browned in a skillet with butter.

    Layered Salad—Bite-size lettuce bits layered with ranch dressing, frozen green peas (they’ll thaw), shredded Swiss cheese, crumbled crisp bacon, and chopped green onions. Chill in layered state and toss just before serving.

    Christmas Jello—red and green layers of gelatin (with fruits as desired), separated by a layer of cream cheese mixed with whipped topping (and a little pineapple if you like). Top with a dollop of whipped topping on each serving.

    Sweet Potatoes and Apples—alternate slices of each in a casserole dish, top with melted butter and brown sugar and bake until tender. Variations: sweet potatoes and pineapple dices, or broiled pineapple and apple slices.

    Chocolate Peppermint Dessert—using a recipe for cream-puffs, spread pastry on cookie sheet and bake until lightly browned and puffy. Spread generously with mixed instant chocolate pudding, then a layer of whipped topping, finished with finely-crushed peppermint candy. Cut into squares.

    And a few fondly-remembered dishes from my southern childhood:

    Macaroni and Cheese Casserole (and I’m not the only one—be sure to see Mac and Cheese: A Holiday Tradition--and by the way, don’t miss Apple Cinnamon French Toast—a Christmas Tradition—I’m trying that one this year!)

    Cornbread Stuffing for Turkey—Use the same seasonings as for bread-crumb stuffing: sage, thyme, onion, celery, and chicken or turkey broth--used to moisten crumbled cornbread instead of wheat bread crumbs. (See recipe below)

    Pecan Pie—whole pecans topping a rich filling made of dark Karo syrup and eggs

    Sweet Potato Pie—similar to pumpkin, but made with cooked, pureed sweet potatoes instead, making a slightly thicker texture.

    Recipe: “Sour Cream Party Potatoes” (the mostly-food-storage version)

    4 cups reconstituted Provident Pantry Hash Browns, drained

    1 tablespoon Provident Pantry Green Onions (or any of our Onions)

    1 ½ cups Provident Pantry Shredded Freeze-Dried Cheddar Cheese

    Sauce:

    Whisk together in a medium saucepan:

    3 ½ cups cold water

    1/2 cup Provident Pantry Cream Sauce and Soup Base mix

    1 tablespoon Provident Pantry Chicken Broth mix

    ½ cup Provident Pantry Sour Cream Powder

    Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes.

    Fold drained potatoes into sauce. Add onions and cheese and stir well. Pour into a buttered casserole dish and top with crushed potato chips or crushed cereal such as crispy rice or corn flakes. Dot with Red Feather Butter. Bake at 350° F for ½ hour or until bubbly.

     

    Recipe: Cornbread Stuffing (the mostly-food-storage version)

    1 batch of Provident Pantry Corn Muffin Mix, prepared the day before if possible, cut in slices and allowed to dry out

    ½ cup Provident Pantry Chopped Onions, reconstituted

    ¾ cup Provident Pantry Celery, reconstituted

    1 ½ teaspoons sage

    1 teaspoon thyme

    1 teaspoon dried parsley

    ½ teaspoon Provident Pantry Black Pepper

    3 tablespoons Red Feather Butter or Clarified Butter

    About 2 cups Provident Pantry Chicken Broth, prepared

    In butter, sauté the onions and celery for a few minutes, then add seasonings. Add 1 cup of the chicken broth and let simmer for a couple of minutes. Crumble the dry cornbread into fine pieces and add to skillet, stirring to absorb the liquid. Add more chicken broth as needed to get the consistency you like. If you’re planning to stuff a turkey or a chicken, make your stuffing a little on the dry side, as it will absorb juices from the bird. Otherwise, spoon stuffing into a casserole dish and cover. Keep warm until it’s time to serve.

    There you have it—some of my favorite traditional holiday foods. Do you have a favorite holiday meal? Leave a comment and let us know!

    Happy holidays!

  • Whenever I think about Christmas, I think about Mac and Cheese . . .

     Oven Baked Mac and Cheese from Food Storage

     

    For my family, every holiday with a feast requires Mac and Cheese as a side (this sometimes includes birthdays and graduations as well). To me, the best thing about Christmas is not the presents or the lights; it’s going home to Virginia and eating my aunt’s homemade Mac and Cheese!

    When I asked my aunt for the recipe, she said she doesn’t have one! She makes it all from memory. But according to her, the secret to making the best Mac and Cheese you’ll EVER eat in your life is Hot Sauce and Cheese Soup. Luckily, the dairy products offset the spiciness—I know it sounds “different,” but once you eat it you’ll be a believer (trust me, I don’t eat spicy foods).

    I found a recipe similar to hers from food.com that will (literally) spice up your Christmas dinner using food storage.

     

    Oven Baked Mac and Cheese

    1 lb. Provident Pantry Elbow Macaroni Pasta

    2-3 Cups Provident Pantry Cheese Blend (Follow directions on can to make into a cheese soup)

    2 (12 ounce) cans Evaporated Milk

    5/8 cup Provident Pantry Butter Powder (reconstituted) or 1 ¼ sticks of butter

    1 teaspoon Provident Pantry Iodized Salt

    1 teaspoon Provident Pantry Black Pepper

    6 cups Provident Pantry Shredded Cheddar Cheese (you can also blend in other cheeses as well like Provident Pantry Shredded Colby or Provident Pantry Shredded Monterey Jack)

    (Optional) Hot Sauce (to taste)

    Directions

    1. Preheat oven to 350◦
    2. Cook pasta according to directions on the can.
    3. Mix together cheese soup, evaporated milk, butter, salt, and pepper in a large microwave safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and cut a small slit to vent. Heat for 6-7 minutes or until milk, cheese soup, butter, and hot sauce are melted into a cheese sauce. (My aunt usually heats all these ingredients on the stove, stirring occasionally until ingredients are blended and so that they don’t stick to the pan or boil over).
    4. Pour 1/3 of the pasta and 1/3 of the cheese sauce mixture into a large 9” x 13” pan. Cover with 1/3 of your shredded cheeses.
    5. Repeat step four until all the pasta, cheese sauce, and cheese is in your baking pan.
    6. Bake for 40-45 minutes.
    7. Pull out of oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Then eat up!

     

    So there you have it folks, Mac and Cheese for the holidays! Consider making Mac and Cheese a traditional part of your holiday meals as well if you love this recipe.

    Happy Holidays!

    -Angela

    Jetscream Whistle--$3.99 (Regularly $6.95)

    The Jetscream is unlike any whistle you’ve heard before. Its pitch reaches 122 decibels. Let’s look at it this way: if speaking is around 60 decibels, rock concerts are usually 105, chainsaws reach 110, and jackhammers are 120, a 122-decibel whistle, like the Jetscream, is pretty loud. It’s a great addition to your emergency supplies; it will help others locate you among the noise of emergency vehicles, aftershocks, or frantic crowds during an emergency.

    New Products: The Jetscream Whistle

    Sparkie Fire Starter--$5.99 (Regularly $10.99)

    The Sparkie Fire Starter is a one-handed fire starter that allows you to aim the sparks to hit your tinder every time. The Sparkie is easy to use and safer than matches or flint and steel.

    New Products: Sparkie Fire Starter

    These new products are great ideas for holiday gifts or stocking stuffers this year—or to add to your own [emergency kit]. Many of them are already on sale, too, which makes last-minute shopping easy and painless.

     Happy shopping, happy prepping, and Happy Holidays!
