Let’s take a short break from the daring adventures of post-apocalypse weapons technology devolution, the breathless exposure of one’s bias towards a Home Happy Place, the continuing sage of fat bitches losing weight with exercise, and talk about a happier subject near and dear to all our hearts. Dead bovine storage food. Canned meats fall into one or two categories, usually both simultaneously. They are hideously expensive or taste like the flaked off flesh of a mummified leper. The only cheap “meat” or meat-like product is Treet. Not only is that NOT a Treat, it ain’t meat. Okay, I will give the devil his due. It tastes a heck of a lot better than the budget hot dogs ( one super nifty idea from “Prepping For Armageddon On A Budget, book 1” by Charlie Bennett, which is now featured above on the Amazon ad and hence a subtle friggin hint to buy the son of a bitch, is to cut up hot dogs in chunks and put them in a big screened stock pot in the sun, stirring a few times a day, to get a dried meat product- some items like taters don’t dry by this method and need the oven but a lot of foods do dry this way and he stocks up his budget pantry all through the summer. He dries in the oven all winter ) out there now for the not so budget price of $1.25. I confess, in a moment of laziness, to trying hot dogs again-in beanie weenies- for the first time in years and I swear by all the Gods they are even worse than ever.
I can’t make home-made corn beef hash anymore because a can of the meat is way north of four bucks. Ouch! To me, canned chicken has a very noticeable chemical aftertaste. Most canned fish is palatable, barely, but I’ve never been a huge fan of fish in any form other than fried, it certainly ain’t as cheap as it used to be, and I’m sure that now the only non-depleted stock is right off the Fukishima disaster area so any can I buy will provide a faintly radioactive glow to read the label by. Now, I’ll be the first to tell you that a new product is probably not the most economical method. There are better solutions, like buying meat on sale, freezing it, cooking it up in a pressure cooker when desired, then slow drying it in the oven in the winter to heat the house for no extra cost. But, as a simple solution, one that isn’t too costly, there is now plastic pouches of cooked hamburger meat at Wal-Mart for $2 for six ounces. Yes, there is some water added to it ( just there is in in most raw meats now- or, in the case of raw hamburger, Pink Slime ). But subtract an ounce for that and $6 a pound for cooked burger isn’t outrageous. It is COOKED, yo. And packed for storage. I’ve tried it, and there is just enough meat to satisfy the protein craving of two adults when mixed with a starch or filler. And it tastes normal. I’m stocking the crap out of it, myself.
