Found an awesome article about canning bacon at BACKWOODS HOME that I am definitely going to try at home! Another great way to take advantage of meat sales before the price of pork skyrockets in about a year. We are also planning on taking advantage of a friends piglet raising this year and are buying a hog to put up in various ways (great thinking on my husbands part!)
And what goes better with bacon than fried eggs? Although powdered eggs are a life saver when it comes to food shortages, nothing beats a good fried egg. And although I can't find the source where I read it, at this time, Im pretty sure the powdered eggs are made with some type of aluminum to keep it free flowing. So here is a link to a page that shows you how the old timers used to store surplus eggs without refrigeration for up to a possible 2 YEARS. See all the information, test results and how-to's at NON-REFRIGERATED EGG STORAGE.
Of course eggs and bacon wouldn't be complete without toast and butter. I'm sure you have the ingredients for the bread, so here is a great tutorial on how to can your own butter (ghee) from a sweet lady who was nice enough to share her methods.
Hope this adds some new dimensions to your pantry and your creativity- ENJOY!
