    If you havenít considered what would happen without power, start by looking in your kitchen. Your refrigerator would no longer work. Meats and perishables would spoil quickly. While we all want to think we wonít ever be without electricity, no one can predict when the next major world war or other catastrophe will occur.
    .
    A major catastrophe that shuts down power plants would be devastatingóthat is, unless you are prepared and know how to survive. You should learn how to preserve meat without refrigeration. Salting and brining are two efficient, simple means of preserving meat for your familyís sustenance.
    .
    Before You Start
    .
    You are going to need a source of fresh meat. Beef and pork are both good options. If you have gotten into homesteading, you may have your own pigs and cows; however, you can also purchase fresh meat from a butcher or a co-op that sells beef and pork fresh off the hoof.
    .
    Next, you should examine your house thoroughly using a thermometer. As you go from one area to the next, record the temperature. Make sure you check the attic, any unheated areas of your house, your storage shed, and any other shelters on your property. You are looking for the coldest areas; this is where you will store your meat.

    Salt. The answer is salt. Same as what the coastal Indians did in North America.

    So stockpile lots of granulated salt with your food and water supplies too.
