BUTTER and CHEESE - Make your own!

This is very note-worthy for food storage and being self-sufficient. I just watched a video on MAKING YOUR OWN BUTTER! I knew in my brain that it couldn't be too hard, I just wasn't sure where to begin. The video also touches on making your own (30 minute) mozzarella cheese! I went to a class a few weeks ago on making this same cheese, using a very similar method - and it is good to have a refresher course so I can remember all that I learned.
Here is the link to the video on butter and cheese making!
(NOW I JUST NEED TO BUY A COW OR TWO so I can make my own!)

Here are the instructions to watch this video (since I didn't make it and don't own it...)

Watch video! Enjoy! (btw, the actual video doesn't start until about 3 minutes into it ... so feel free to skip ahead.)

Let me know what you think...

Emergency Preparedness Food Comparison Chart

I had a gentleman send me a link to a new info-graph he made up. I thought it was interesting and thought I'd share.


 I hope it is big enough for you to make out the wording and all... maybe you can zoom in. (It helped me to read it by putting it in my print preview screen. I didn't actually print it - I just pretended I was going to, but I was able to adjust the image to the size I needed it to read it.)

Anyway, what do you think? is it handy to have all this information in one place?
