Survival Day 15 (Salt Bucket)

The average person consumes roughly 5lb of Salt per year in America. That means that each of these 10 Pound Salt Buckets is a two year supply per person based on current consumption levels. Unfortunately that doesn’t account for the fact that you are going to need even more Salt in order to store food when the apocalypse hits. Salted fish? Salted venison? Basically any meat you can cut into strips and stack in layers between Salt will work.

How much Salt? That depends on how thick your meat is and how long you need to store it. You shouldn’t cut your slabs more than an inch thick (in my opinion) and the thicker the cuts the more salt you need to layer to make sure there is enough to suck out all the moisture and inhibit bacterial growth.

My suggestion is to practice and experiment before the ZA starts. Don’t wait until you need the skill to survive before using it.
