Just thinking that if times do get all worse cause of fuel prices and we need to be more self sufficient. Corn and sunflowers grow real good around here and both can be used for different purposes such as human consumption as well as animals. But does anyone know just how to extract the oil from them? How many bushels would it take to make a gallon of oil? Just got to thinking that with all the oil we use in a months time from deep frying to using for ingredients we probably use about 1 gallon a month. How many acres would we have to grow to keep up that demand? Would probably have to cut back somewhere. No more deep frying I would guess.
