Basic Food Storage Recipe Book

I found this awesome document online back in January 2006. It’s a list of seventy food storage recipes that ONLY use the items included in the church’s one month basic supply kit. That means the only ingredients needed to make all of these 70 items are wheat, flour, fat (oil or shortening), sugar, powdered milk, macaroni, quick oats, pinto beans, and salt. It has everything from how to make your own baby teething biscuits, to wheat crackers. Even caramel. It also has information on sprouting wheat and beans, and much, much more. This is exactly what I was looking for!

Problem was, the orginal was formated in PDF to make tiny quarter-page booklets, and was 94 pages long!!! It was also in a tiny font and had quotes interspersed that made reading kind of difficult.

After much work, here it is in what I think is a much better form. One copy that is 23 pages long — or 12 front and back. I’ve deleted the quotes and left just the essential parts. Below is the Table of Contents for the document:
