  • Utah State Preparedness Expo - recipes

    We had a really great time in Salt Lake at the Utah State Preparedness Expo Saturday, September 12. We met a lot of wonderful people who are trying to get prepared with food storage. As I was giving out different food samples, I had several who asked for the recipes for the chili and fruit cobbler that I had made. So I thought I would share them here.

    Fruit Cobbler

    Mix 3 cups of freeze dried fruit with 5 cups of water. (You can use 1, 2 or 3 kinds) I used 2 (blueberry and raspberry). Bring to a boil and add 1 cup sugar. Boil for a few minutes. The mixture will be thin. Add 3/4 cup tapioca and mix well.

    tomatoes and spices tomatoes and spices

    Put water into a large stew pot. Add the tomatoes, tomato powder, ground beef, beef bouillon, chili powder, cumin, oregano, salt and cayenne. I cooked the beans separately then added them later. Let simmer for 30 minutes to 1 hour until done. Enjoy with onions, sour cream and cheese. **The amounts on the seasonings are an estimate since my husband was helping me and never measures anything. I would suggest adding them to taste.
