Nowadays, most people are completely reliant on their electric kitchen appliances to make a meal. Mixers, blenders, microwaves, electric ovens, and so forth.
But if the grid ever goes down, they won’t be able to cook anything. That’s why it’s best to start acquiring powerless appliances now.
Of course, the possibility of the grid going down isn’t the only reason to stop relying on electric appliances.
If you’re living off the grid and don’t have electricity–or want to minimize your electric use so you don’t strain your wind or solar power system–then it’s in your interest to find as many electric alternatives as possible.
In this article, we’ll go over some of the best powerless appliances on the market.
I’m talking meat grinders, rocket stoves, pasta makers, percolators, solar ovens, hand crank mixers, hand crank blenders, and more. How many of them do you have?
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
