One of the best bartering products when SHTF is undoubtedly going to be sugar. It will also be a great product to have in order to make treats that boost morale and lend a sense of normalcy to life How to Make Beet Sugar Not surprisingly, beet sugar is made from sugar beets. These aren’t the same as the red or white bulbous beets that you’ve eaten as a dinner side or with pickled eggs; sugar beets actually look more like a parsnip or daikon than they do their sister beets. They’re elongated and have a similar coloring to white potatoes and sugar beets grow well in a variety of climates just like all beets do. Sugar beets were originally grown to feed livestock but aren’t really fit for human consumption. Here’s one of our favorite things about sugar beets – after you make the sugar, you can still use the leftover meat of the beet as a hot or cold mash for your livestock. No waste! Beet sugar is super-easy to make, too. No special equipment is required and it doesn’t take a long time to do it. Scrub your beets to get all dirt and debris off of them. Thinly slice, dice or shred the beets and place them in a pot. Add just enough water to cover the beets. Heat to a boil then simmer long enough for the beets to become tender and soft. Remove from heat and strain the beet pulp out of the juice using cheesecloth. Return the syrup to the pot. Hold the cheesecloth full of pulp over the pot and squeeze as much water as possible out. Simmer until it becomes a thick, honey-like syrup, stirring frequently, then remove from heat. Place in a storage container and allow to cool. As it cools, the sugar will crystallize. Remove crystals and smash into a powder with your fingers so that it looks like table sugar. Store and use just like you would regular sugar. Just FYI, you can expect to get about 17% of your original beet weight in sugar. To do the math for you, you’ll need about 10 pounds of beets to yield 1.7 pounds of sugar.
Adapt 2030 believes this is a test run to see how we will respond concerning our food. People growing their own food should take notice. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK8eFtal5hc Azure Organic Farm Standoff with State Authorities Sherman County Oregon "The 2000 acre Azure Organic Farm in Sherman County Oregon will be forcibly sprayed with Milestone, Escort and Roundup herbicides because the farm will only control weeds not eradicate weeds with chemical sprays. This is government over reach to the point of forcibly removing part of the food supply chain because other farmers in the area using terminator GMO seeds say the weeds from the organic farm are getting into their roundup ready planted / sprayed fields. This is not about the weeds, it is a litmus test to see the public's reaction when their food supply is taken away. Will we fight, speak up, back off or take no action. As the grand solar minimum intensifies state and local governments will come for your self grown foods, this is the line in the sand. Stand up now, on never."

This loss of wheat is going to be reflected in higher food prices later this year...Also, if you research it, you will find Europe is experiencing the same loss with different crops. ‘WE LOST THE WESTERN KANSAS WHEAT CROP THIS WEEKEND’ By Chuck Abbott 5/1/2017 Blizzard conditions and heavy snow swept western Kansas, including 14 to 20 inches in Colby in the northwestern quadrant of the No. 1 winter wheat state in the nation, said the Weather Channel. “We lost the western Kansas wheat crop this weekend. Just terrible,” tweeted Justin Gilpin, chief executive of the grower-funded Kansas Wheat Commission. The snow and freezing weather struck a winter wheat crop that was developing faster than usual, thanks to a mild winter. As a result, the crop was more vulnerable to spring snowfalls and frost. “Generally, temps below 32°F. for a minimum of about two hours will cause damage to the crop,” says the Kansas Wheat Commission. “Freeze injury during heading and flowering stages can cause severe yield consequences.” A quarter of the wheat crop was headed as of April 23, compared with the five-year average of 17%. “Most of @KansasWheat country shut down and no power. Devastating conditions,” Gilpin tweeted on Sunday afternoon. Some comments on Twitter were more hopeful: “Don’t give up yet,” said one, and, “Much-needed moisture but wheat will be flat on the ground when the snow melts.” Source: http://www.agriculture.com/news/crops/we-lost-the-western-kansas-wheat-crop-this-weekend Why are we experiencing this strange weather? A winter that doesn't want to end? The Sun began entering the "Grand Solar Minimum" in 2016. More explained below. 2016, Beginning of Grand Solar Minimum Agricultural losses This is the story that will pull food stocks down from around the world. With strange Hurricanes, typhoons floods, droughts and changing weather patterns globally, some areas are showing signs of the future of crop yield potential going forward to 2020. These are the areas that will continue to see losses Year On Year starting now. With 50 year storms in Western Australia, vineyards are being effected as we enter the Grand Solar Minimum, seawapa.org/ia. Additionally Australia broke a 116 year rainfall record for Eastern Australia. With dips in Antarctic temperatures prevalent through the temperature records over the last 500 years, The Southern Hemisphere also follows the cooling trend, lagging the Northern Hemisphere by one month. Australia follows European flooding throughput the historical record. Findings below matches this trend 2016.
