Great posts Aaron. Thanks.
Cheese submerged in cooking oil lasts forever, and you can still use the oil for cooking.
Buy a copy of "The Bean Book" by Rose Elliot. Lots of bean recipes in it.
You can use a pressure cooker for beans and pea soup, as long as you put a bit of cooking oil on top of the water to stop it from foaming.
Mix a can of sweetened condensed milk with a half can of vinegar and a teaspoon of mustard and you have a very tasty mayonaise which needs no fridge.
Buy a large caner( scrapyards are a good source) and use it to can meats and fish. Works well for venison.
Blackberry leaves and any strawberry type berry leaves make a good tea, as do stinging nettles, thimble berry leaves, hawthorn berries, etc.
I once lived in a housekeeping room which had a fridge . I only used it once in two years. Never had one since ,over 40 years ago.
