Survival Kitchen–Buy Powdered Milk and Make Your Own Cheese

Some are concerned about nuclear radiation from Fukushima showing up in milk. Now’s the time to buy powdered milk for use now as well as for your survival pantry.

You don’t want to take the chance of harming your children or yourself. Even low levels of radiation have devastating effects on unborn babies and infants.

Food storage has come a long way in the past several years. And there a number of cookbooks available for making the best use of your storage food, including powdered milk.

One such cookbook is Cookin’ with Powdered Milk, by well known author Peggy Layton. She’s written and spoken extensively on cooking with storage food.

Her book gives you:

* 9 pages of information about how to store, blend, reconstitute, and cook with powdered milk.
* 6 pages of powdered milk recipes with milk as the main ingredient.
* 6 pages of cheese recipes.
* 8 pages of cottage cheese recipes.
* 6 pages of beverage recipes.
* 2 pages of sauce and gravy recipes.
* 7 pages of soup and chowder recipes.
* 5 pages of simple supper recipes.
* 9 pages of dessert recipes.

Cookin’ with Powdered Milk is a book you’ll want in your survival kitchen collection.

If you want to try your hand at making your own soft cheese, try the simple method shown in the video below. There’s no reason it can’t be made with the food storage ingredients in your survival pantry.

Why not have fun with making healthful cheese? The kids will love it.

  1. Could anything be simpler or easier than making cheeses as this video describes it? Imagine keeping milk edible by making cheese from it. Some cheeses improve over time. This is a food craft anyone can do. I love how the video ends with someone regretting at the end of his life, “I never made cheese.”
