Preparedness Like Grandma Used To Do

With all the dooms day, end of the world type preparedness sites online, I felt the need to clarify where A Working Pantry fits into the preparedness arena.

Here at A Working Pantry we're all about being prepared, make no mistake, but not the end of the world/dooms day type of preparedness. Instead, our focus is on common sense preparedness like grandma used to do.

A full larder ...

Ability to treat minor illnesses and injuries ...

Growing a garden ...

Canning and preserving your own food ...

Producing with your hands the things you need for your home and homekeeping to the best of your ability ...

and ...

A can do attitude and the tenacity to look to the future and plan for it.

I hope you enjoy what you read here.



  1. Where do I start? Love you website. Alison

    1. Thank you Alison, just jump in anywhere and Welcome!

  2. Herbal meds for colds and flu … I need to make some shower balls for stuffy nose's along with a couple of other things, so this is an area I need to work on.

    Essential oils for colds and flu. Please, please, let me know how to get started on these. We, here in Michigan, have already been slapped by Father Winter and it isn't even Winter yet. I am really behind. Any help with Essential oils for colds and flu and shower balls for stuffy nose's along with a couple of other things would be helpful or at least steering me towards a tutorial. Thank you. :)

    1. Alison, I'll be doing posts on all those things in the near future.

  3. Ran across this recipe and your blog while searching for a squash casserole that wasn't too rich and could be frozen. Excellent site! I'm a 67-year-old country gal and garden who believes in preparedness the same way you do. Plus, once you start growing and cooking your own food, it's hard to put up with so-called convenience foods in the stores and fast food joints.
