We are living in unusually insecure times. Life is a series of peaks and valleys. Lately, we are experiencing more valleys than peaks though. It’s the difficult times where we need a little more support and guidance.
Electricity shortages may be a challenge during the hottest days of summer. Remember that about a century ago, we did not have all the modern conveniences of life, yet the people survived.
Here is one simple, yet valuable trick which will help you preserve your perishable foods during the times of long power outages.
Take a smaller clay pot and put it inside of a larger clay pot.
Fill the space in between them with wet sand.
Cover the top with a wet cloth. When the water evaporates, it pulls the heat out with it, making the inside cold.
It's a natural, cheap, easy to use and even portable refrigerator. So, instead of perishable foods rotting after only three days, they can last up to three weeks using this method.
