New Mexico Urban Homesteader

Hello, I am A 50 Something, Prepper ;-}; former 60's Flower Child, don't believe in taxpayer subsidized special interest groups (political parties), DO believe in the Constitution and Bill of Rights (1st 10). Long time Independent & Informed Voter. Lover of the outdoors and firm believer that History Teaches - if only we will listen!

(No longer Urban or in NM. Now Rural in the mountains of Maine.)

This blog was started at the request of some dear friends that wish to become Preppers.

“No man who is not willing to help himself has any right to apply to his friends, or to the gods.”

Stocking the Homestead Kitchen

No matter where you live, stocking your kitchen will be a critical step in having a useful and viable home. This is one of those areas that you really cannot skimp on for your basics. Your most critical items for your kitchen, outside of the appliances, will be your cookware and your tableware.

It seems that today most people either go for “super casual” (as in use and toss) or “faddy formal” (as in special shapes, colors and designs). Neither of these extremes will work for a frugal or homestead kitchen as we do not have the gumption (or ability) to re-purchase disposable items or the next fad in tableware. Considering this it is far wiser and cheaper over the long haul to think Multi Functional.

For pots, pans, other cookware and tableware that basically leaves us with Cast Iron Cookware and Enamelware. Neither of these can go in a microwave but are durable and can be used on the cook top, in the oven or on an open fire.

Good luck Huntin & Cookin
