This week we discuss Food preservation methods. We go down the list of different ways to preserve food both on grid and off. Canning and pressure canning are brought up. James talks about only how he has only ever canned ground beef and tried butter once. The butter method is not recommended. We talk about salt curing and how it makes everything on a pig taste better. James mentions how proscuitto taste like gym socks.
Smoking meats is another great way to preserve food. It is both easy and can be done off grid. Larding meat or potted meat is an ancient way. It is nothing like it’s modern day counterpart.
