I'm probably late to the party, but my strategy that has netted me pretty much infinite food:I have two iceboxes. One for veggies/raw stuff, one for cooked/jerky. I have 6 jerky racks. Jerky lasts FORTY DAYS in the icebox and 20 in your pocket, and boosts health sanity and hunger. I use the crockpot for sanitising all of the monster meat into meaty stews and honey hams. Sometimes to make taffy if i'm purposely going insane, but I usually prefer a tent.
