Nothing wrong with that.... I like food that is natural unprocessed. Just made a loaf of bread with Un-Bleached, Un-Processed wheat flour. Has a nice texture and does not feel like a sponge store white bread. Sliced it and one bag is in the freezer to prevent mold from growing.

Might start to pick up the Canning and Preserving skill. We are going to need it for later.

Forgot to mentioned... got 6 Gallons of Hard Cider conditioning. Is wine quality on the Alcohol level, might take few litres and make Vinegar with it.

canning and preserving foods is an art that must be kept alive, Too many people are dependant on getting things from the grocery But you just don't know exactly what is in the cans.
I teach canning to the younger generation and Im thinking of teaching a few classes to the boy/ girl scouts as well.
its fun to see the proud look they have when they take a jar of food home they prepared and preserved and the proud looks of the parents
its cute to see the surprise on their face when the lids ping

Agreed, too much crap in store bought cans. Is incredible de amount of fillers, GMO, nitrates, etc... they put on them. No wonder the poeple are getting sicker each day. Part of keeping yourself off the Doc office is nutrition, and is a huge part. Knock on wood, I am a hair over a half a century old and do not take a single pill at all.

Is hard to find the good stuff, however, a jewish guy that I used to work with, told me about Kosher foods. Is interesting how the Jews have a much higher quality standard. Will be surprised the stuff that is not Kosher. So far, have been using their products and they are pretty darn good. Try to find Kosher Milk, the ones that have the Kosher symbols are very few and they do not use Hormones.

People think Cereals are helathy, they are the worse. Is added tons of processed sugars, GMO grains and Celulose... and on top of that, add milk with production induced hormone milk... nothing but poison !
