You might already have a meat grinder for making homemade hamburgers and homemade sausage. If you do, good for you. If you don’t already have a meat grinder, you need one. It can be a great tool for survival and living off the land. Food grinders can turn wild game and bits of other meats into perfectly good ground meat that you can use in a variety of ways. You can use the ground meat in meatloaves, bulk sausage, link sausages, and the already mentioned homemade hamburgers.
If you’re a hunter, grinders are a must! Those large pieces of flesh you get from your hunting take up lots of room in your freezer, while ground meat takes up a lot less space and is much easier to handle. Food grinders can be used for other foods besides meats, too. You can grind up vegetables and fruits for relishes, chutneys, salsas, and chowchow.
