Food storage sure seems expensive

Food storage sure seems expensive. And it is if you pay $19.00 for a #10 can of milk and let it gather dust in your pantry without ever tasting it, or using to reduce your food budget.
But if you look at a can of milk that you can buy from LDS Church cannery it costs about $1.72 a gallon. How does that compare to the milk you buy at the store?
It’s good for cooking and baking but it’s not instant and most people don’t think it tastes good enough for drinking.
Does your milk ever go bad before you use it up? Do you ever have to run to the store just for a little milk for that recipe?

That can of instant milk you bought last year for about $12.99 cost $2.59 a gallon.
Today that same milk will cost $3.36 per gallon. You may have noticed the store prices have also gone up. What will it cost next year?


How about eggs at $1.12 a dozen? How does that compare to the eggs you buy at the store?

And you can safely sample the cookie dough or fix eggnog because they’re pasturized and tested. And they won’t get recalled for having salmonellae. A can of 19 dozen eggs costs $21.69. Some suppliers have only half as many eggs in their #10 cans.


Would you like apples that you don’t have to wash or peel for about $1.15 pound? A can of 12 to 13 cups of dried apples costs $13.69. You can also buy these cheaper from the LDS Cannery.


How about bananas for a snack that don’t won’t get bruised or turn brown for about 80 cents each ? Did you ever weigh a banana? They weigh about a pound each. A can of 12 to 13 cups of dried banana chips costs $9.49. We recommend freeze dried bananas for baking because the chips don’t work well in recipes but the freeze dried cost about $1.58 per banana, or $25.39 a can. You can buy banana chips in the bulk food section of many stores but some don’t taste very good because they don’t have coconut oil or sugar added. Make sure you buy a small sample to taste before you store a large quantity.


Let's talk broccoli. Well maybe you don't eat it everyday. But can you buy canned broccoli?

 You can buy diced dried broccoli for $10.99 this month. We have a sample in our store you can see, smell, and taste. It looks like dried sticks and could add some nutrition and flavor to soups and stews. However if you're looking for broccoli that looks and tastes much like frozen broccoli you'll want to consider Freeze Dried Broccoli. You can get a sale price this month at Emergency Essentials for one 5 oz can for $13.75 if you buy at least 6 cans. That's $2.75 per ounce.

or you can get 7.36 oz cans for $18.29. Only $2.66 per ounce from Shelf Reliance. No minimum order. Or save even more get a case for $103.89 just $17.30 a can. Sign up for the Que and save more.

These are just a few items that I picked out that might save you money on your food budget.

I suggest you take time to compare products that you use every day with various suppliers of food storage. Compare not just the price per can but the price per pound or serving and the contents.

But a single can or smaller sample and test it on your family before you purchase too much.

Just like in your grocery store, prices are subject to change without notice. All #10 cans are filled by weight not volume. Some suppliers fill their cans with more product than others.

Be sure to look at the label for ingredients and nutrition. For example some milk may be made of whey and oil not real milk.

Cherie Call - Having Fun Finishing Her "Homeless Songs"

You should be familiar with the music of Cherie Call. We've enjoyed her songs for years. Well, recently on Facebook I discovered she is having some fun writing or actually finishing songs she is calling her "homeless songs." What is a "homeless song" you ask? Well, on Cherie's Blog she explains,

I need to go back in time a little. Well, maybe a lot. Ten years ago, my life was full of drama. Dating drama. I wrote songs about it. I wrote ideas for songs in lots of notebooks. I never finished many of my favorite ideas. First of all, I started dating an awesome guy, and I married him. And who has time to write songs about drama when you’re having fun living life and being in love? Second of all, I started writing and recording a lot of religious music.

I loved it and still do, but those drama ideas never fit on any of those albums. So there the ideas sat for many years.

Lately, I’ve been in the mood to finish some of those ideas, and it’s been fun. In a way, the songs have turned out oddly inspirational in spite of the drama, since I now know how the stories ended and I can write about them from the top of the mountain instead of the depressing bottom of it. I can tell myself things I wish I had known or that I would have listened to way back then. Hindsight is 20/20. Maybe I can help someone else who is wasting their time on someone dumb. Or having a hard time getting over something similar to what I have in a song. Or maybe not. Maybe the songs will do no good, but to make me have a fun time writing them.

No matter what, I’m going to share a few of them with you. Why are they homeless songs? Because I honestly have no idea where they belong yet. They don’t have a home on any album or movie or anything like that.

Her first "homeless song" is called Big Yellow Moon -  You know she's having fun with this - notice how her guitar has shrunk into a Ukelele.

Her second "homeless song" is called The Day the Stars Came Down -  And if you aren't familiar with Cherie Call, following is the short bio. Cherie Call was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona and has been writing music since her early teens. She has released seven full length albums of her original songs. Her latest album, “Grace”, was released in October of 2009. Some highlights of Cherie’s performing life include playing “in the round” at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe, being a finalist in the prestigious Kerrville Newfolk songwriting competition, and opening for bluegrass legend Tim O’Brien at the University of Utah. Cherie’s songs have been included on several albums produced for the LDS Especially for Youth summer programs, and also on the soundtracks to many independent films, including God’s Army, Charly, and the Banff Award winning film, “True Fans”. Cherie currently lives in Utah with her husband and two daughters.

Has any religious community been the subject of more curiosity, controversy, or misunderstanding than the Latter-day Saints? From the time pioneers settled the Salt Lake valley, Mormon culture has drawn the public eye and colored the public record—for better or for worse. This landmark volume explores nineteenth-, twentieth-, and twenty-first-century Mormon society through the perspectives of journalists, novelists, travel writers, presidents, and other well-known public figures, including such varied people as Susan B. Anthony, Buffalo Bill Cody, Mark Twain, Leo Tolstoy, Vincent Price, Will Rogers, Angela Lansbury, Walter Cronkite, Margaret Thatcher, President John F. Kennedy, and dozens more. Some of the accounts are humorous, some flattering, some exaggerated, some insightful. Arranged chronologically, this wide spectrum of viewpoints illustrates a changing public awareness of the Latter-day Saints; taken together, they offer a captivating view of a peculiar people throughout their history.

In this talk, Brother Wilcox explains how the advice to "forgive and forget" is good when dealing with other people's sins, but not with our own.
