I'm the type of cook that rarely uses or eats canned goods-- so, when stocking up, I know I wont use them if not for a hurricane.
I like th idea of low salt peanut butter. I suppose a loaf of bread will last a week out of the fridge. Meat is only going to last one day without electricity to keep it cool, so I dont think I'd stock up on that. I like the idea of a weeks worth of fresh oranges. I wonder if fresh veggies will last a week without refrigeration, in a home with no a/c obviously I wonder if there are some tasty kits that have freeze dried food, ready to reconstitue with water and heat. I like the idea of charcoal: One could dig a pit in the yard, but a grill over it, put the charcoal in the pit and heat stuff up. One could use the downed trees as fuel as well. Like the idea of individual applesauces.
Maybe one just has to get used to the idea of yucky canned food for a week. In Jeanne and Frances, we simply left the area and didnt return until the power grid was up enough to be able to buy fresh food. sorta.
Any gourmet types here have some great ideas about solving the yuck factor?
