Cooking during Disaster

outdoor cooking to survive disaster

 

Cooking during Disaster can be very difficult if you are not prepared.  My purpose in writing this article is to save your life in a disaster.

Many people have non-stick cooking utensils. These pans are great in a normal kitchen but are useless in a disaster situation.  The plastic utensils will melt when exposed to the high temperatures of cooking over a wood stove or open fire.

In a real disaster you will need to be able to cook food in sometimes harsh conditions. To start you will need a flint or magnesium fire starter. These items can be purchased at Amazon.com.  Gas or electric stoves may not be available or operate during a true disaster.

Also a solar oven can be used to bake food usually made in a oven. This may be useful to make items that do not cook well over an open flame.

Cast iron cookware are made to perform well over a regular stove as well as an open flame. Cast iron pans will cook almost anything. Having extra cast iron or stainless steel pans is great for storing food too!

To clean up after a meal, white cotton dish towels are great. They are easy to clean with bleach. This keeps your meals healthy!  A metal bucket and shovel can be used to remove debris from the cooking area.

A tripod is useful to suspend a cooking pot over a open fire.  These can be obtained from many outdoor stores or Amazon.  To make one yourself you need some heavy duty rope
and a small saw.

Cooking on an open fire can be tricky as the fire’s temperature can change. Practicing open fire cooking helps prevent a ruined meal and will help you make a healthy meal!

Hail Danger!

Hail Danger

Hail can be just as disastrous as a tornado
It can damage cars, windows, roofs,etc.  Also hail usually precedes a tornado!

The safest place to be is in an interior room or basement
away from windows and glass which may shatter.

When outdoors seek shelter & cover your head.  The same goes when you are in a car,  cover your head to protect your head from flying debris.

People who do not heed this advice could be seriously injured or killed!
