Food Storage

We recently went to a ward activity where we brought our own food to be canned. We did Spaghetti, Flour, Wheat, Sugar, and Milk. We found out that you can check-out canners and do canning at home. We decided that we needed more so about two months ago I called the LDS Cannery to rent a canner. They told me the waiting list was about two months out. My sister and I have been collecting items to can over the two months. I bought Oats, Rice, Potato Pearls, Salt, Sugar and Milk. Yesterday was the day and we canned for about two hours. It was very satisifying to know we were better prepared to feed our families if some hardship or disaster happens.
