Rotate Your Food Storage

I heard a great idea for both rotating your food storage as well as trying it out to make sure it is useable. You don't want to get into a situation where you have to live off your food storage just to find that you can not use half of it.

One family takes one month a year, buys no groceries and eats only their food storage foods. This way they have the opportunity to try new things, come up with tasty recipes for the food that they have and they can learn what works and what does not. It would make a really bad situation worse if suddenly you find yourself needing your food storage but you cannot use it due to not know what to do with it, allergies or just plain not liking it!

I challange you to put together your food storage, a little bit at a time if you haven't already and if you already have it established, then take the above advice and rotate it by using it.

Here is some great advice from the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences Cooperative Extension Service.
