Many of our longest The Survivalist Blog readers requested a recipe section be added to the website. Dan thought that was a superb idea and got busy creating a new section that would provide useful survival, homesteading, and off grid cooking recipes.
The recipe section request sparked an idea for another new, and I believe, one of a kind, prepper website offering. After finishing my first recipe article, I mentioned the idea of interviewing renowned prepping cook, Grannie Pam (Pamela Gail Peters) for the section.
When I began designing the interview, I thought it would be really cool if it was interactive so the readers could post their own survival cooking questions and get some responses from an expert in the food growing, preserving, and cooking field.
Out of those thoughts the idea for yet another new section was born. Dan is always able to spot a great idea and equally eager to help provide insightful, actionable, and educational learning experiences to help fellow preppers.
Here is how the interactive interview format will work. I will write a promo piece for the interview, including an introduction to our expert guest. In the comments section below you can submit questions that will be included in my interview. Once the piece if published, on this same page, the guest expert will be invited to respond to your post-interview questions and comments, as well.
Now, let’s virtually meet Grannie Pam…
I had the privilege to meet Pam at the first Prepper Camp in 2015, where I was also speaking. If you have not yet heard of prepper camp, it is a 3-day complete immersion into hands-on homesteading and survival skills in North Carolina – it is so NOT a prepper expo.
Pam has been growing her own groceries, preserving them, and cooking – baking with them for decades. She has an esteemed reputation for her cheese making, wine and beer making, dehydrating, fermentation, canning, and bread making skills.
She learned the importance of self-reliance skills at her grandmother’s knee when she was just a small girl working beside both of her grandparents in their garden.
Pam, like most of us, feels folks are starting to look back in time and are wanting to learn how our grandparents and great grandparents did things. The prepping grannie considers keeping the skills that appear to have been almost lost, alive, to be quite an empowering experience.
“I feel like this is the gift that I can give to anyone who is willing to learn. I am always surprised at how many want to learn and also by how many still don’t care to know anything. – Grannie Pam.
She is not just a firm believer in sharing what she knows and is learning about with others, but looks so forward to doing so.
