I'm constantly looking for basic foods that can last a long time on the shelf and be ready to go in a SHTF situation. However, I also collect recipes that use items that come in #10 cans and five-gallon buckets: red winter wheat, dry milk, egg crystals and dehydrated fruits, just to name a few. I've noticed that many bread recipes including loaves, cakes, pies and other breads have an ingredient required that you can't just add water to a mix: cooking oil. Obviously, most of us can go to Sam's Club and pick up a couple of five gallon buckets and that will keep us through several months of cooking, but what happens in an EOTWAWKI situation? Does anyone have a way to produce cooking oil without taking over a Kraft Foods plant? Is it as simple as collecting corn or soybeans and pressing them to death, or does it need further processing? Obviously the easier the better, but any ways to produce any sort of cooking oil with common tools and/or appliances would be appreciated.
