I don't think I will ever forget the scenes I saw on the news just about a year ago when a storm knocked out part of the Texas power grid. This caught a lot of folks unprepared. I got me to thinking, it was Texas this time, but it could happen anywhere for many different reasons. So today, let's talk a little about how to cook when the lights go out.
Other ways to cook could include open fire in a firepit, solar oven, rocket stove, and wood stove. Regardless of which one you use, it is best to get a little practice ahead of time. You don't want to wait until the power goes out to start learning!
There is nothing quite like being able to provide a hot meal or a cup of coffee (do you have a stovetop percolator?) when the power goes out. It will feed the body as well as smooth some frazzled nerves.
