Welcome to the Survival Dispatch Insider
The first modern grocery store, as we know them today, was started in 1916 in Memphis, Tennessee – and it was a Piggly Wiggly. Now, if you’re not from the South, you probably have not had the pleasure of shopping at the Pig. The modern grocery store was a cog in the wheel that moved people from an agrarian lifestyle, close to the production of the food they consumed, and to working in cities in factories or other jobs.
This change in lifestyle was also the beginning of the loss of knowledge and skills that people relied on for centuries before. Modern food is often highly processed, packed with preservatives and generally grown far from the people that will eventually consume it. Prior to this development, people grew their own food. They canned it, cured it, smoked it and dried it. Today, the average person can do none of this. And worse yet, they have no interest in doing it.
In this edition of the Insider, we’ll discuss food preservation techniques. Everything from the oldest method, drying, to the most technologically advanced process, freeze drying. Whatever method you choose, start now and retake control over your food preservation.
