Emergency Food Storage and Survival Handbook by Peggy Layton

August 27, 2009 by  

Natural disasters, the possibility of food shortages and the threat of some type of terrorist attack on American soil have brought the idea of crisis preparation out of the fringe shadows and into the mainstream. And no other topic in this vein is more popular than emergency food storage.

So Peggy Layton’s, Emergency Food Storage and Survival Handbook is a must-have for anyone prepping for an emergency.

Layton, a home economist, author and lecturer, has written five books on home food storage and cooking. In her latest she leaves nothing out. And the methods she encourages won’t break the bank.

Layton begins by stressing what will be needed for short-term emergencies. But she goes beyond food needs; covering evacuation planning, emergency kits, shelter and first aid. She provides a suggested list of practical items that must be included.

For the short-term emergency, Layton describes what is needed for 72-hour emergency survival and then gets into long-term survival methods.

Photos and lists accompany each of her subjects as she describes how to keep, collect and purify water and how to organize food storage. She covers sleeping arrangements and sanitation. She also covers how to purchase in bulk and store and rotate what you have.

After discussing what to purchase, how and why, Layton begins to help you tailor your purchases to the needs and tastes of your family.

One great feature of the book is her charts which will help you plan your storage by planning meals ahead of time. Doing this her way ensures you don’t forget any of the ingredients you’ll need for your meals.

Other charts she includes are for inventory planning and they cover everything from condiments to cooking and communication to gardening.

The final third of the book is dedicated to preparing and cooking the foods you have stored. There are also a large number of recipes using the foods she recommends.

If you are serious about emergency preparation and emergency food storage this book is one you should definitely have in your library.
