With the growing interest in simpler, back to basics living, there’s a thirst for knowledge about canning and making things like bread and cheese. Wilson and his wife Chaya saw that need. A couple of years ago they started Pantry Paratus to help you build your survival pantry.

For yesterday’s DestinySurvival Radio I interviewed Wilson to find out more about Pantry Paratus and bring them to your attention. Whether you’re new to prepping or have been at it a while, consider Pantry Paratus as a helpful resource.

What’s in a name? One of my first questions was where the name came from. We all know what a pantry is, but what about that word “paratus”? It so happens it’s latin for “ready” or “prepared”. By the way, paratus is pronounced with emphasis on the second syllable, which has the short a sound.

Who is Pantry Paratus? They’re a small family owned and operated company with a desire to see you and me think seriously about what our families are eating, where that food comes from, and how we can preserve any surplus we may have. The goal is to prepare our pantries for the lean times, whether you go through unemployment or we experience a catastrophic crash.

Wilson says customer service is important because they want you to be able to get the help you need. If you buy a pressure cooker at a big box store, that store likely won’t be able to answer your canning questions. Why not be in touch with people who can walk you through your journey?

With much knowledge lost over the generations, Pantry Paratus offers beginner kits and supplies for skills like canning, bread baking and cheese making. They also sell heirloom seeds and encourage you to grow your own food wherever you live.

What do you need to know for survival? Pantry Paratus puts their focus on four core competencies for homesteading.

  • Water purification
  • Bread baking
  • Pressure canning
  • Dehydrating
Wilson and Chaya strive to offer you survival supplies they’ve used and can believe in. Also, if you want items that will work when there’s no electricity, they have hand cranked grain mills and grinders, as well as gravity fed Berkey water filters.

What about ready-made storage food? Have it in your survival pantgry, but be careful to buy food that doesn’t have GMO products in it. You don’t want to eat something in times of stress that would make you ill.

If you know how to grow or raise your own food, you’ll have an ongoing supply. You’ll also put greater value on what you produce yourself.

What about a traditional food diet? Wilson and Chaya are very careful about what their family eats. They avoid foods with long lists of ingredients no one can pronounce. They eat meat, so they’re not vegetarians. They also enjoy whole wheat bread with no worries about gluten or bad carbs.

What about special needs diets? If you’re diabetic or have other dietary concerns, the best thing is to avoid as much processed food as possible.
