With all the earthquakes happening in Chch, I have rethought my emergency supplies. I buy each week dried veges, peas, corn, onion etc and store them away. Also UHT milk is a little more expensive, but can be stored in a cupboard. Only need to refrigerate when opened.
Candles stored in a freezer for a few days will burn slower.
Will try the teabag as firelighters that is on your tips [the teabag trick works well – Oily Rag Ed’]. Does any one else have any ideas?
Am also looking for a bread recipe. At the moment, I am using large fruit cans that are recycled.
With your baked bean challenge, baked beans are excellent emergency supplies, as they can be eaten hot or cold.
