While some may think that survival cuisine entails gnawing on hunks of gristly meat, or eating bowl after bowl of cold gruel, it doesn't have to be that way. There are plenty of tasty and nutritious foods that can be stored for years in the right conditions. These foods can be supplemented by any wild fish and game you're able to catch, as well as naturally-occurring vegetables. So, even if the excrement has hit the proverbial fan, you don't need to sacrifice your taste buds to stay alive.

So, you'd be wise to include a variety of seasonings, herbs, and spices in your emergency pantry. Fortunately, these items generally have a very long shelf life, and some can be stored indefinitely without spoilage (though they may lose some potency).
