Necessary stock of products in a crisis


The economic crisis has already hit the world economy. I have already given my forecast of its strength and crisis. Link to the article here.

For Russians, the crisis is further aggravated by the fall of the ruble relative to world currencies, due to the fall in the cost of oil. On Monday, the price of Brent crude oil fell to the level of 2016 and amounted to less than $ 31 per barrel. This means that the ruble will continue to fall now a practical issue. What to buy in a crisis for the common man. More precisely, products.

Given the projected duration of the crisis, I personally recommend purchasing the following types of long-term storage products.

I write from the experience of a man who has lived through different times and whose ancestors (the Cossacks) used to live in Autonomous conditions. I myself currently live almost in the forest.

A list of products in the crisis
1. Sugar. It's cheap now. From 20 rubles per kilogram. There is an overabundance of sugar in the country, but due to the crisis, stocks may decrease.

2. Salt.

3. Legumes. Lentils, peas, beans. Excellent sources of energy, protein and long-term storage.

4. Canned meat. Canned meat. Best of all, horse meat, then beef, pork. And lamb if you have it.

5. Canned fish of various types. I have several types of canned fish that are required for storage:

Sprat in tomato sauce.
Sardines, horse mackerel, mackerel in oil.
Fish roe. Not necessarily red or black. A great thing is the caviar of Pollock, carp, herring and others. Inexpensive, but nutritious.
Pink salmon, trout. An excellent source of protein.
6. Dry milk.

7. Cocoa powder.

8. Coffee beans and tea.

9. Canned peas, beans, corn.

10. Tomato paste in cans.

11. Vegetable oil. If sunflower, then deodorized. Olive oil is in tin cans.

12. Spices, vinegar.

13. Different cereals (buckwheat, millet, oatmeal, rice, pearl barley, bulgur). These cereals, if properly stored, are stored quietly for several years.

14. Flour.

15. Pasta.

16. Dried fruits. Apples, pears, dried apricots, prunes, raisins. Best stored are pears and apples. Their extreme eat.

17. Pickles of cherry, garlic, vegetable frying.

18. Fruit and berry preserves with a high proportion of sugar. Ground currants, strawberries, gooseberries, etc.

In the season, if there is a plot or cheap on the market, I recommend to stock up on the following products

Dried foods in a crisis

  • Carrot.
  • Tomatoes (dried, pour oil).
  • Garlic.
  • Greens (parsley, parsnip, coriander, dill, etc.).
  • Bulgarian pepper.
  • Onion.
  • Mushrooms.
  • Fruit (Apple, apricot, pear)
  • Forest fruits (rosehip, hawthorn, pear, Apple, dogwood).
  • Medicinal herb.
  • If there is a large freezer and an Autonomous power source (windmill or solar panels), then freeze the following products


Frozen food in crisis
1. Meat.

2. Fish.

3. Fat. But it is good to pack, because it is oxidized.

4. Bulgarian pepper.

For a short period of time, I recommend salting the fat, making sauerkraut products according to the season (cabbage, beets, carrots, apples).

What I do not recommend to prepare in one way or another in a crisis

1. Canned vegetables from the store.

2. Frozen mushrooms.

3. Pickle mushrooms.

4. Vegetables in large volumes.

5. Meat and fish semi-finished products from the store.

6. Sausage.

Where can I store food for the crisis?
At the moment, my question is resolved. Basement for 35 meters, garage and so on. But I remember very well the times of the late 1980s and early 1990s, when my parents kept food in their apartment. Most of it was in the storeroom. Dried products on the windowsill or battery, or on the floor.
