Prepper Food - Scottish Broth

This Scottish broth will sustain a family of 4 for 1 year in an emergency situation. If re-packaged it can be stored for several years. It can be cooked every day on a camp fire in a Dutch oven. This recipe contains all the essential vitamins and minerals to maintain your health in an emergency situation. You can add meat, fish or vegetables to the pot to enhance the flavor and nutrition. You never know when a snow storm or other natural event will leave you stranded for extended periods. Every family should have at least 30 days of emergency food for just such emergencies. This is a long term emergency food supply. We ordered ours thru the local Amish General Store, the total cost for the beans, rice and spices was about $175. The broth cost varies depending upon the brand and quality. Be sure to check the ingredients on the broth to make sure it contains meat and is not all salt and dye. Certainly you can divide the bulk quantities for lesser amounts for 2 people, however the bulk packages come in 25 pound bags.
