We’re getting back to the basics with our item this week: flour. Hopefully you’re not totally clueless when it comes to baking. If you plan on having any sort of bread/biscuits/cookies/cake during the zombie apocalypse, you’re going to need flour. (If you are one of my gluten-free friends then plan on stocking up on gluten-free “flour”. Or a bunch of box mixes. Whichever you’re more likely to use.) Flour is kind of a no-brainer. If worst comes to worst you can always throw together some tortillas. This is an item that should be pretty easy for you to rotate through on a regular basis.
I recommend at least five pounds per person. If you live in a place like Texas that tends to be a bit heavy on the pantry critters, pack your flour up well. I’ve found that Jumbo ziploc bags are perfect for keeping my flour weevil-free. I can get two five-pound bags of flour in one Jumbo ziploc.
