May 5, 2012 – 229 Days Until Baktun 12

Survivalist Tip: Of all the food ingredients you should stockpile, flour needs to be one of them.  This is an indispensable commodity.  Flour is basically the result of grinding cereal grains, seeds or roots.  Every culture throughout human history has created flour, from the ancient Chinese to the medieval French who used it to treat herpes sores to contemporary residents of Beverly Hills who use it to feed their Mexican gardeners.  The term “flour” is derived from – what else? – “flower;” both words ironically are French in origin.  They come from “fleur,” which means “blossom.”  The process of creating flour figuratively means to create the finest part of a meal.

Wheat and rye are the principal grains used to make flour.  Don’t worry now about actually trying to create your own batches of flour; just purchase several bags of it before December 21.  It’ll keep well, even unrefrigerated.  Mixing flour with water usually creates paste.  But, it also can be baked or cooked to make some simple, yet nutritious foods to get you through the toughest part of your survival.  And, if you want to add extra taste to it, mix it up with some chocolate and/or beer.  Hey, just because you’re in the midst of an Earth-shattering crisis doesn’t mean you – a well-prepared survivalist – can’t enjoy yourself, while other hapless souls stumble around the barren wasteland!
