This recipe for mock Parmesan Cheese from Dehydrated Milk uses the soft curd cheese we made in an earlier post, so if you haven’t already check that out.
I know it sounds silly, but if I ever have to resort to living solely off my food stores alone I am afraid of food fatigue. That’s why I try to only store the foods I like to eat, but no matter how much I store now, or how much I try to store good tasting foods, the local BBQ pit is only a short drive away.
To combat appetite fatigue I try to find multiple ways to cook the same items to get different tastes (and textures). That is one reason I wholeheartedly endorse the “Cooking with Home Storage” book series.
The series shows how to make hundreds of food recipes using the same simple ingredients.
The ingenuity, imagination and skill can help you achieve amazing results with your home storage if you put in the time to practice and learn for yourself which recipes you and your family likes BEFORE you don’t have any other options.
So enough with the intro, lets show you the recipe:
