I wanted to recommend a book called “Making the Best of Basics” by James Talmage Stevens.

It’s a great resource and primarily covers food storage – why, what, how, how much, and what to do with it. It explains how to calculate your storage needs based on the size of your family, and there is a spreadsheet to help make the process easier.

We’ve found the recipes in the book helpful also, one of my sons made some great bulgur dishes out of some of our wheat. I can honestly say that I’ve never had a better tasting “Taco TVP Bulgur” or “Bulgur and Bulgur Sausages” than the ones my son made using the recipes in this book.

Part of the motto of the book is to “store what you eat” and “eat what you store.” And that’s great advice.

I bought the book about ten years ago, and it can be purchased here: http://www.nitro-pak.com/product_info.php?products_id=311&osCsid=fa
