With winter upon us, our second preparedness challenge in November is to gather a 1 to 3-month supply of canned soup and broth. Some of us love making homemade soup which is wonderful if you have plenty of accessible water. It’s a good idea to keep canned soup or broth in your pantry for everyday cooking and just in case you don’t have water. It’s also something people want when they are ill. So stock up.
1. Gather a 1 to 3-Month Supply of Canned Soup and Broth
- Broth and soups typically go on sale during November and December. Hooray!
- Consider how many of these items you use in a month or three months.
- If you like condensed soups, get some of those. If you like complete soup meals in a can, purchase them.
- If you prefer a bouillon powder or cubes, or Better Than Bouillon instead of canned broth, buy what works for you so you will use it. You don’t want these foods to go to waste.
- Check out some of the great recipes at Campbells.com/kitchen/recipes.
- Did you know broth is mentioned in the Bible?
“And the angel of God said unto him, Take the flesh and the unleavened cakes, and lay them upon this rock, and pour out the broth. And he did so.” Judges 6:20
Now you know. Keep your pantry full and you will never go hungry.
