The idea behind this whole post is to not only help you learn how to use your long term food storage to make delicious meals, but have meals that are already put together and ready to cook. Meals in a jar can be a delicious treat in disastrous times.

These meals in a jar are really easy to put together, and if you have enough pantry room, you can construct plenty of ready to cook meals!

Meals in a jar

I’ve included a list for breakfast, dinner, dessert, soups, and even drink mixes! Many preppers may leave out drink mixes in their prepper efforts. However, drinking plain old water gets old. Sometimes, you just need a little flavor. Also, sometimes it’s nice to have a hot drink like cocoa.

These meals make great gifts to anybody really. Who wouldn’t like getting a meal in a jar? They don’t even have to be preppers to acknowledge that it’s a pretty cool gift. These meals in a jar would be especially loved by people who love to camp or go hiking.
