Let’s make some off-grid coffee using a french press and a charcoal grill. I’m happy to record another video for our Off-Grid Cooking From The Pantry Series – video number four. It’s only coffee, but hey, that’s a lifesaver for many of us.

I’m going to take my trucker genius and my prepper mindset and help you understand what’s going on with our supply chain disruptions and what we need to do about it.

Everyone’s hearing about the global supply chain disruptions but few people understand exactly what that means or why it’s happening. This article will help you make sense of the supply chain shortages and what’s causing them.

In this article, I’m going to share my opinion. It’s an op-ed, not my regular type of post here on Next Step Survival but it is a survival topic. I’m not an expert but I feel like I’m just as Smaut as them folks with that label.

Expect to be enlightened!

Includes Video – Adding Dried Mushrooms To A Roast

An article on how to rehydrate dried mushrooms? Absolutely, because dehydrating vegetables is a fantastic method of preserving for long-term food storage and your prepper pantry. If we’re going to dehydrate it, we need to know how to re-hydrate it.

Let’s rehydrate dried mushrooms. I’m cooking a roast today using dehydrated mushrooms and decided to record a short video on adding the dried/dehydrated mushroom to the Crock-Pot.

By the way, rehydrating other vegetables works the same way. I just happened to be rehydrating mushrooms today.
