they usually collect ice from winter time and create a big block of ice and keep it in a storage room and kept food with it. That would usually last on till next winter time. And a way of storing meat, is to rub salt on them and hang them. (this would prevent rotting, diseases, and bugs from going in to it.

People didn't worry or think about keeping food cold as we do. There were root cellars under houses or behind houses that were cool, but nothing like freezers or a refrigerator. Pioneers caught food on the trail. Everyday men would go out to hunt for small game. There was also dried/smoked meats and salted meat. For centuries salt was used to preserve food ( it still is today) and this is something the Pioneers also used.

They dried the meat in the sun, so the meat would last longer. They stored vegetables under ground to keep them from spoiling.

Since pioneers didnâ??t have modern refrigerators, they sometimes dried foods. They also put containers in bodies of water to keep things cold.

To preserve food the pioneers used salt, and vinegar and they could have sun dried the food and they might have had root cellars to keep the preserved food edible and cool.
