  1. What is copy-canning?

  2. How do I get started in copy canning?

    1. break down to 1 month, then two month, then three
    2. 1 month
      1. buy a cheap 50 cent notebook, note what you use for two weeks minimum

      2. get a 12 month average use of the stuff you use

        1. use something twice in a week, that is 104 a year.  If the shelf life of that food is only 6 months, then you only need half of that to keep fresh rotatable food.  You would save 52 of them.

        2. What about people that don’t want commercially canned food?

        3. Now this should give you a month or two of food when you reach your numbers… why not a year?

        4. You can now save money on food, because you can wait on deals

    3. 2 month
      1. fillers: pasta, rice, beans, potatoes

      2. still recommend canned beans and potatoes for less energy required for heating them.

      3. additional “non perishable” items to go with your fillers.  That extra jar of spaghetti sauce for your pasta, etc

      4. should still be logging your uses and thinking about your year’s worth of fillers by consumption

      5. this with your canned foods will give a versatile 2 month supply, if not even more.

    4. 3 month
      1. Start looking into the higher quality freeze dried foods.

      2. most only take some water and very little heat to prepare

      3. do this to cover most of the things that you couldnt get , or just couldn’t bring yourself to get in a can.

      4. You can get yourself an extremely well stocked pantry and 3 month supply where everyone is ENJOYING their meals instead of rice and beans.

    5. Rewind the clock, start over, look at your uses again
    6. Eventually, need to learn how to harvest and store food to move from self-reliance into self-sufficiency.
  3. Well, I know how to stock up on canned food, but how do I start using that food when it is needed?
