We have the entire Foxfire series, multiple canning books, and my favorite (great memories of my grandparents), Jerry Baker's Great Green book of Gardening secrets.

The last is not really what I would call self-sufficient, but lots of low cost remedies

Foxfire books are interesting culturally too. i have a few of them and wish i'd been able to get the whole set when the library pulled them from their collection.

Jerry Baker stuff, not for me...

If you can't read this, advise and I'll type out....View attachment 18932
I can't read the part about using an egg to test the lye.

The illustration makes me smile! When I was a kid I volunteered as a docent at a museum. My favorite exhibit to work was the 1800's log cabin. There was one of those structures for making lye in the yard - that's how I learned about it!
