Great Grandma survived just fine without a refrigerator. If we lose electricity, I have alternative methods of heating, lighting, cooking and I could do just fine except for the lack of a refrigerator and freezer. Yes, we’ve planned for that and have a back-up generator but that will only work until the fuel is gone or the generator breaks down.
Is it really possible to have a long-term solution for refrigeration that doesn’t require electricity for emergencies? Absolutely. The answer can be found in the age-old art of “root cellaring”. All you need is a cool, humid, dark, ventilated area that can be easily accessed and you have the ability to significantly extend the life of fruits and vegetables.
In this video, we share some really cool ideas for making inexpensive and easy to make root cellars.
