    Default LDS Cookbook?

    The wife and I were reviewing the LDS preparedness PDF, in looking at the list of food to stockpile my wife asked a rather simple question. 'Is there a cookbook they use for all these ingredients?'.

    So does anyone know a good cookbook to have around to use in conjunction with the LDS food guide?

    You might try here as well:

    Also here is my version of the LDS Preparedness manual:

    Alright, there are LDS cookbooks, but most of them are local to various congregations. Mormon ladies exchange recipes like the prepper pros they are, and occasionally they have an activity day when they gather up and self publish their favorites. At least one of the links above is one of those, the nice thing is the recipes are time tested and usually kid approved.

    Dickey's Passport to Survival is the quintessential LDS survival cookbook. Mother just handed her copy off to me. I haven't made any of the recipes yet. It has four basic ingredients: Honey, wheat, dry milk and salt.

    On the other hand, this is a great book too:
    Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook That Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon, Mary G Enig, Kim W Murray

    It gives you the basics in so many old fashioned ways to prepare food. Reading the sidebars is more than worth the price of the book.

    If you don't already have one, I'd like to also recommend a good traditional cookbook, such as the Joy of Cooking. The 75th Anniversay edition has some things that were omitted from earlier versions. (I have several versions -- love cookbooks!) http://www.amazon.com/Joy-Cooking-75.../dp/0743246268 (check around to see if this is the best price. I bought mine at Sam's club. If memory serves it was a little less than this price.)

    Anyway, with a cookbook like this one, you can learn alot of the background information on the how/why things are done. Rather than simply having a "collection" of recipes on a given topic, a book like this one helps take cooking to a higher level. Whether cooking with stored foods or those straight from the garden, butcher, etc. "Higher level" means that you can more easily adapt recipes to more suit your own tastes and needs.

    Hope this helps, a bit.

    Thanks for the replies and suggestions. One of the probelsm I've been having finding a good cookbook, is there are so many out there. Most these days seem to include far to many recipies that include buying some prepackaged item from the store.

    I have a few of Peggy Layton's books.
    Cooking with Beans and Rice is a good one and Cooking with home storage is also a good one.
    She is another of the LDS crew, and I was impressed with how good the recipies turned out.

    Marlene's Magic with Food Storage is a must have. Starts with basic recipies from dry goods and works from there.
