We cover some really heavy topics here at times. As we near the end of another year I want to toss in some fun and practical stuff. Today we will talk about cooking and specifically cooking for this time of the year, stuff that warms your insides when the outside is cold.
Now only do I consider cooking a prepper topic for a variety of reasons todays episode will also include many dishes tailor made to portion out and freeze or can, which can add to your food preps.
I will also talk about using lower cost cuts of meats that Americans have forgotten how to use and frankly forgotten how great they taste. Things like beef shank, pork butt, lamb shoulder chops, beef heart and more.
