SE FS374 All-Weather Emergency 2-IN-1 Fire Starter & Magnesium Fuel Bar (Everything you need to start a fire!)
Why waste time and energy finding kindling with regular fire starters that may or may not even catch a spark?! Regular twigs and branches in their natural environments will not light unless they are extremely dry. With this reliable pocket-sized tool, you will always be ready to start a fire. Our fire starter comes complete with a solid compact magnesium bar that can be used hundreds of times, or until the magnesium runs out. Simply shave some magnesium into a pile and easily spark the shavings (yes, even in wet or humid surroundings). The shavings will quickly spark into a flame so you can ignite larger pieces of wood. Waterproof, weatherproof, and built for long-lasting durability—this is an essential addition to your supplies for camping, hiking, trekking, boating, hunting, travel, survival and emergencies. As a bonus, we have included a mini compass to help supplement your navigation needs. PRODUCT FEATURES: • Overall dimensions: 3” x ⅜” x 1” • Conveniently compact size • Waterproof & weatherproof • Solid magnesium body (silver color) • Black flint striking rod • Serrated metal striker • Mini compass—size: 4.5mm x 20mm dia. • Detachable silver ball chain link HOW TO USE: 1 – Gather tinder (dry branches, bark, grass, pine needles, lint, paper, etc.) of the preferred size/amount. 2 – Use the serrated edge of the striker to scrape along the length of the magnesium rod to create shavings. 3 – You can either sprinkle the magnesium shavings throughout the tinder pile, or scrape the shavings into a cluster to the minimum size of a U.S. quarter coin. 4 – Then hold the flint at an angle over the pile, while forcefully sliding your striker along the length of the flint to create sparks. 5 – Continue to slide the striker against the flint until the sparks land directly onto the shavings pile and ignite a flame. PLEASE NOTE: For first-time use, stripping the protective layer of paint from the striker before starting your fire will help produce the best results. SE is committed to providing the customer with the best source for value possible. You will enjoy the quality, function and usefulness our All-Weather Emergency 2-IN-1 Fire Starter & Magnesium Fuel Bar has to offer. IMPORTANT: Avoid receiving counterfeit items.

Food Storage: Preserving Vegetables, Grains, and Beans: Canning - Dehydrating - Freezing - Brining - Salting - Sugaring - Smoking - Pickling - Fermenting
There are a lot of books about food preserving but what sets this book (and the first two of this series, “Preserving Meat, Dairy, and Eggs” and “Preserving Fruits, Nuts, and Seeds” is that each food and all of the methods for preserving that particular food are described in their own chapters. In Part I of this book it begins with vegetables and works it's way through each vegetable in alphabetical order. Then on to Grains and then Beans (legumes). All methods of preserving that work well with each food are explained along with directions for the preparation and processing of that food. There is also information about what doesn't work and why. In Part II it explains the preservation methods and how to do them, and what you'll need for: Canning, Dehydrating, Freezing, Salting, Brining, Sugaring, Smoking, Pickling, and Fermenting, as well as some not-as-often heard-of methods: Ash, Oil, and Honey for food preservation. Everything is something that the authors have personally done or tried, or in a few cases, spoke to someone who had. Both authors have been preserving food for about half a century, first as kids helping their parents, and then as adults (and parents) preserving food for their families. The authors live on opposite ends of the country (North and South) and bring some of their own regional flavor to the book, making it interesting as well as informative.

Preserving Food without Freezing or Canning: Traditional Techniques Using Salt, Oil, Sugar, Alcohol, Vinegar, Drying, Cold Storage, and Lactic Fermentation
Typical books about preserving garden produce nearly always assume that modern "kitchen gardeners" will boil or freeze their vegetables and fruits. Yet here is a book that goes back to the future—celebrating traditional but little-known French techniques for storing and preserving edibles in ways that maximize flavor and nutrition. Translated into English, and with a new foreword by Deborah Madison, this book deliberately ignores freezing and high-temperature canning in favor of methods that are superior because they are less costly and more energy-efficient. As Eliot Coleman says in his foreword to the first edition, "Food preservation techniques can be divided into two categories: the modern scientific methods that remove the life from food, and the natural 'poetic' methods that maintain or enhance the life in food. The poetic techniques produce... foods that have been celebrated for centuries and are considered gourmet delights today." Preserving Food Without Freezing or Canning offers more than 250 easy and enjoyable recipes featuring locally grown and minimally refined ingredients. It is an essential guide for those who seek healthy food for a healthy world.
