Pasta – comfort food that’s easy to make

May 22, 2009

Pasta is so easy to make — and the fresh product is so superior to the aged store-shelf kind — that in recent years even yuppies who would be aghast at the idea of homesteading have been making their own. They have also made pasta machines popular kitchen appliances.

Homesteaders on a budget can do just as well.

Pasta dough is nothing more than flour and eggs. Start with about 11/3 cups flour and two large eggs: add a bit more flour if needed, but don’t overdo it. The dough should be somewhat sticky, but not moist.

Most people add a small amount of salt (1/4 teaspoon) and 2 teaspoons of olive (or other) oil, but these are neither traditional nor necessary.

Mound the flour on your kneading surface, make a well in the center, and break the eggs into it. Gradually mix the flour from the edges in toward the center with a fork, and mix it lightly. Let it rest for a few minutes while the flour absorbs the egg. Then knead it for 6-8 minutes or until the dough is smooth and silky. Cover the dough with a damp towel and let it rest another 10-30 minutes to make it easier to roll out.

Then lightly dust your breadboard and hands with flour — again, don’t overdo it, even if the dough seems somewhat damp — and flatten it out with your hands. Then roll it out with a rolling pin, from the center to the edges. Work quickly so the dough doesn’t dry out. Try for a circle about 24 inches in diameter or a square about 21 inches on a side. (Lasagna or ravioli can be a little bit thicker than long flat noodles like fettuccine or spaghetti… about the thickness of a dime.)

Let the rolled-out dough rest, uncovered, just long enough for it to begin to dry without the edges becoming brittle, about 10 minutes with average humidity.

To make flat noodles (the easiest kind), lightly dust the thin sheet with flour, loosely roll it up, and cut it in the thickness you want, with a sharp knife.

You don’t have to roll the dough, which can sometimes be difficult. You can just cut strips of the desired width. Although these are likely to be wavy, some people appreciate the “hand-made” look.

Let the noodles dry for 30 minutes on a lightly floured towel, or on a pasta rack. (This can be a clothes rack, or even a broom handle propped between two chairs.) If you’re going to store them for later use, let them dry completely.

To cook, bring three quarts of water to a boil. Add 2 teaspoons of salt. Add the pasta, all at once. Stir just enough to keep it from sticking together. Bring the water back to a boil then cook the pasta at a light boil until al dente, or just firm to the bite. Fresh homemade pasta cooks faster than dried, and thin noodles may take only 2-3 minutes.

Once you master this simple recipe, you can move on to lasgna, ravioli, cannelloni, manicotti, tortellini — and spinach, beet, tomato or pesto flavored pasta — and with the dozens of different fillings and sauces you could have easy-to-make homemade pasta for weeks without duplication.

Emergency Storage Food Among Products in Highest Demand

May 9, 2009

At the end of 2008, there are three consumer marketplaces that are experiencing record sales volumes—firearms, precious metals, and emergency storage food. Crisis preparedness is increasingly the theme for those seeking a refuge for their money and comfort from their concerns.

Minneapolis (Vocus/PRWEB ) December 6, 2008 – Gun dealers all over the United States are having a hard time keeping any inventory on hand for anxious customers. Reports are that guns and ammunition are selling at levels up to 50% higher than previous records.

Anxiety and bearish outlooks abound wherever one cares to look today. There’s precious little a concerned citizen can do in reaction to global forces spinning out of control. But we all do what we can. At Safecastle, we’re particularly happy to give our customers this holiday-season opportunity to become better positioned for what looks like rough times ahead.

The demand for gold has similarly erupted—Q3 of 2008 showed global sales 45% higher than the quarter before, which itself set the previous high-water mark.

Survival gear and emergency food producers are shipping product as fast as they can get it through their facilities and onto the loading docks. Using packaging technologies that deliver shelf lives measured in years and even decades, producers of storage food are experiencing unprecedented demand today for their products.

Victor Rantala, owner of the crisis preparedness company Safecastle LLC, said: “Our business volume this year will triple over last year, and most of this increased activity has come in the last 3-4 months.

“By far, our best seller right now is Mountain House freeze-dried food. It stores for more than 25 years, it’s easy to prepare, and it tastes great. Outdoorsmen and adventurers consider it a preferred staple. Our customers, those who are looking at a future that looks very uncertain, see it as a way to lock in today’s prices and to ensure a level of peace of mind that is hard to otherwise put a value on.”

In response to the overwhelming demand for storage food and strains on customers’ budgets, Safecastle is offering an end-of-the-year sale on Mountain House freeze dried food in cans—which offer the longest shelf life of any storage food on the market. All Mountain House cans are 25% off list and ship for free to the continental U.S.A. The sale is running at the Safecastle Royal Buyers Club from December 6 to December 19.

Said Rantala, “Anxiety and bearish outlooks abound wherever one cares to look today. There’s precious little a concerned citizen can do in reaction to global forces spinning out of control. But we all do what we can. At Safecastle, we’re particularly happy to give our customers this holiday-season opportunity to become better positioned for what looks like rough times ahead.”

The Politics Of Protest and Individualism

April 20, 2009

Survival Acres is the most fearless blogger around.



If you’re going to stage effective protest (versus protests), I guarantee you, it’s going to cost you something — personally. And this is where so many Americans fail, they want group “cooperation” as a necessity for their involvement, where they can link hands around a tree or something, otherwise, they won’t do it or they won’t commit. They’re not willing to put a personal aspect to protest, where it will cost them something personally.

Of course, this means that such protests are absolutely meaningless and ineffective. What do our leaders care when we publically protests with signs and placards and letter writing campaigns, but then go right back to compliance or cooperation or funding after our weekend spree of “disobedience”? If you’re going to protest, you have to commit your life to the effort, not just your mouth.

Our leaders have long recognized this tendency and have used it effectively for their own advantage and agenda. Group participation is highly manipulated in this country (and probably elsewhere too) as being socially acceptable. Non-group participation is widely frowned upon as being “anti-social”. We’re taught this behavior from birth, never realizing that we are unwittingly going along with the mass brainwash of herd manipulation.

Haven’t you noticed that group participation is allowed, whereas individual protests is not? I’ve read countless stories where the isolated individual who stands out is swiftly silenced. Ever wonder why? Because this frightens the living hell out of those who are trying to manipulate us into compliance. While America prides itself on “individualism”, the truth is another story. We’re a nation of herd animals, the vast majority unwilling to take a stand on anything, especially if they have to stand out and be identified.

The Modern Art of Cluelessness

April 20, 2009

We need an international Declaration of Independence. We need a charter that says, “I will fight in no more wars for vampire corporations that have been dressed up in patriotism and duty”. “I will no longer buy useless crap that serves no useful purpose.” “I will no longer shop as an avocation.” “I will boycott the products of any country that practices genocide upon the people whose land they have stolen.” “I will no longer accept what my leaders and the media tell me and will assume they are lying every time they speak.” “I will not assume that another country is my enemy because corporations commanded our leaders and their media to proclaim it.”
