Product Description

Welcome to Prep School!

It’s easy to be intimidated by a hardcore prepper with 30 years of food stores, multiple bug-out locations, and an off-the-grid power system. Prep School exists to let you in on three big prepping secrets.

SECRET ONE: Nobody starts perfect.
SECRET TWO: Prepping is fun.
SECRET THREE: Prepping isn’t just for The End Of The World As We Know It.

Prep School is for people who’ve been bit by the prepping bug but don’t know where to start. You’ll walk through introductory prepping lessons that won’t break the bank or scare your neighbors. Prepping doesn’t have to be a big, intimidating ordeal. Prep School teaches you how to be social, learn interesting new skills, and sleep easier at night knowing you’re ready for any crisis or disaster.

If you’re an advanced prepper who could use a quick refresher on a specific topic you can spend 99 cents on a single essay. There’s no need to waste your money or make you wade past information you could teach in search of the good stuff you need. If you’re just getting started, you can pick up individual $1.49 books or save a little cash and pick up our $2.99 Theme Packs where we bundle related articles into a single book. Only buy what you need. Spend the rest on your preps.

In this lesson of Prep School you’ll learn multiple ways to preserve meat without power. Welcome to the French art of charcuterie and the American craft of drying jerky.

Be you someone preparing for the zombie apocalypse or a person interested in a healthy alternative to commercially prepared cured meats; a hunter or a back to the land homesteader, this booklet is a great resource for people interested in preserving meat.

The author focuses on whole muscle curing, like ham, bacon, things like that. There are three main sections: Jerky, wet cure and dry cure. Each section includes guidelines on how to succeed at each method with a focus on salt to meat ratios and drying environment. However, the author does not dictate specific herbs and spices, leaving it open to the individual to choose what they have available to them. Personally, I love this novel approach of letting the cook choose the spices. So many other books on the topic dictate very specific spice mixes and chastise you if you think of changing them (seriously, they do). As this is a book about honing your survival skills for emergencies, the author acknowledges that the reader may not have acess to exhotic spices and will need to use what's available locally.

Nitrate/nitrites are addressed in passing, with the author taking the position that you don't necessarily need them, but they do help keep you safe and prevent spoilage. This is in keeping with the them as you probably won't have steady access to them in any emergency that lasts long enough for you to need to cure your own meats.

On the whole I am really enjoying this series. The booklets are packed full of information and the price is reasonable. I'm not much of a prepper myself, but I enjoy the hobby of being self reliant. So from that point of view I find these books a great starting point for trying new techniques. I do hope the author gets a chance to write about cured sausage in the near future, the tools take so little space and no electricity, I think it would be a perfect prepper topic for using up every last scrap of meat, and they are so tasty!

HASH(0xa6431984) out of 5 stars Very straight-foward. Packed full of information. May 3 2012

The book is exactly what the title says, a book on preserving meat using no power. The methods are simple, and I'm confident I could preserve meat as discussed in this book.

HASH(0xa6431bd0) out of 5 stars Ok, if you live in the north Nov. 11 2012

Not a lot here (interpret: none) if you live in the South for food preservation, other than jerky. Would like a more solid strategy for regional preservation.

HASH(0xa6431b94) out of 5 stars Well written basic guide Oct. 22 2012

This guide is a basic but well written and easy to understand guide that assumes very little knowledge on the subject and presents the reader with a simple way to preserve meat. I am sure that at the end of the book you would be able to preserve meat satisfactorily.

HASH(0xa6431e88) out of 5 stars Realistic, practical, useful...but not enough. April 23 2012
By BovinitySupreme - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a realistic, practical, useful overview of some skills you can enjoy today in the everyday civilized world, which would go from luxury to necessity in a common natural disaster (say, a hurricane or ice storm) or a more severe post-apocalypse world.

Unfortunately, after reading it I don't feel like I could confidently just start doing anything I learned in it. I would definitely want to read more books from other authors or watch some videos before I would use some of the new knowledge. I would fear for my safety eating food prepared with techniques described in this book unless I had more information and possibly a real teacher in person.

Don't buy it and wait until the world ends. Read it now and use it as a jumping-off point to get started building and practicing some fun and tasty skills.

valuable book for all homesteaders, preppers, farmers, and hunters. Good advice on preserving on all kinds of meat. Read things that I will definitely will be using on regular basis. Highly recommend.
