Wolf Pack Pantry Challenge (Week 8)

There’s going to be some good eating in the neighborhood tonight. You have shot and killed a 200 lb. wild boar. You don’t want any meat to go to waste. How would you preserve the meat?

You have foraged for some wild garlic and walking onions. From your garden, you have potatoes and carrots.

Question: What would you make? Please post your recipe below.

Scenario: We are in a grid down situation. We are already several months into the situation. There is no running water, no electricity, and no refrigeration. You are well stocked with the basic pantry staples and spices, you have some home canned foods and you have a garden that is actively producing a limited amount of fresh produce.

You also have several means of cooking at your disposal—BBQ grill, sun oven, volcano stove, camping stove, adobe pizza oven and open fire. Let’s imagine, for simplicities sake, that you don’t have to worry about the smoke from the campfire attracting anyone unwanted. There is also no issue about fuel. You have plenty of wood, propane, charcoal and so forth. You have a manual wheat grinder, cast iron skillets, Dutch oven, wok and other basic kitchen equipment.

Potable water is not an issue because you’ve built redundancy into your preps. You have a Berkey with several extra filters. You have a well with solar pump, as well as a mechanical backup. You have rain barrels.

Wolf Pack Pantry Challenge (Week 7)

When it rains, it pours. You’ve had a terrible week and now it is time to do some problem solving. At some time during the night someone raided your garden. They must have been scouting your property, you realize, because they stripped your fruit trees right as the fruit began to ripen. They also got away with a significant amount of cabbage, potatoes and other high value vegetables.

You look for your dog, but you have no luck . . . until you happen upon her body. There is some half eaten meat by her body. You realize she has been poisoned.

If you found yourself in this situation, what would you do? Please post your suggestions below?

To make matters worse, you were hit with some nasty storms that have made it virtually impossible to hunt and fish. You have not been able to scavenge or trade. So this week, you have no “plus five” ingredients. You must prepare a Sunday dinner with just your food storage. You’ve served beans and rice all week. No one is complaining. But you would sure like to change things up a bit.

Wolf Pack Pantry Challenge (Week 6)

You have had an interesting and productive week. A member of your survival group has shot and cleaned a duck. From your garden, you have cabbage, sweet potatoes, and carrots. You have scavenged for several jars of marmalade. (These jars have been added to your list of staples.) What would you make with these ingredients? Please post your recipe below.
