In the Beginning...
... we survived off urine, ejaculate and communal breastmilk. Or we may as well have considering how squeemish we are about wild food. Great lengths are taken to imprison innocent fruits in styrofoam containers just to ease these collective squeems. The Apocalypse Pantry is dedicated to evolving our food philosophy, sharing information and exploring techniques of preservation and preparation that were once crucial technologies that supported our life on this planet. It is not a bunker full of Twinkies or anything resembling the "hoard and defend" approach to survival, (which we have spent the last 5000 odd years proving is not a sustainable approach to sustenance), it's a celebration bitches.
Just as historical fiction allows it's reader the opportunity to humanize and empathize historical events outside their experience, this multi-dimensional piece of futuramic fiction is our way of humanizing events that are impending though at the same time still without form and subject to human perception and influence. We are not scientists, fortune tellers or the bosses of you. We are simply imagining what our world would be like in a different cultural context, one in which we are free to be the agents of our own health and vitality, as well as that of the source of our nourishment; our planet Earth.
A Recipe Ode to In The Beginning
Remember when, in the pre-apocalypse, perfumers would pay large sums of money to procure rodent pee and then make perfume from it so people would spray themselves when trying to lure a mate only to be asked out by rodents instead? Oh perfumers, such pranksters!
Dassiepis (the musky dried urine of the Hyrax, found high on the landscape where dassies love to roam. You will find the drippings too, these you can use for spitting competitions.)
1. Set Dassiepis in warm waterin a sealable glass jar in the sun on a hot summer day, the berg wind the better.
2. Leave sun cooking for 3 days
3. Sip as needed to remind yourself that you are an animal and don't require croissants to survive (follow with a croissant)
