What are some of your guilty pleasure canned items?

Mine were ravioli, spaghetti with meatballs, smoked trout, and anything Spam. Recently, I discovered the canned Indian food at Trader Joe's, and it's top notch (brings me back to my childhood, not Indian, but my uncle was.)

Green olives, smoked oysters (I keep a hundred or so cans as emergency rations and I love when I need to rotate some out), mandarin oranges and of course the high sodium crap Campbell's makes.

OP, you should be concerned about appetite fatigue. I'd suggest adding Beefaroni.

For cheese, cabrales blue, feta, and Cougar Gold.

I like to hit up the middle eastern and indian markets for interesting canned and bottled items. Spicy pickled goodies, stuffed eggplant and dolmas, feta cheese in olive oil, indian curries, etc.

Kimchi is too easy to make fresh. I can't see buying it in cans. But I'm curious what it'd taste like. I know there's a world of difference between canned saurkraut and homemade.

I would say there is little to feel guilty about in those items. Keeping a well rounded pantry is just good planning IMO. In addition those types of items usually pair very well with plain rice and pasta, significantly increasing the overall usability of those basic staples.

For me it is anything Chef Boyardee (or similar). I can not help but enjoy these products and store a significant quantity, but nutritionally I would say they are "low value". I am especially guilty of not even heating them and just eating them out of the can. My wife has to leave the room when I do this as she finds it so horrifying (the peace and quite is an added bonus of this method).

Ditto MikeK.

Speaking of which, why the heck is there no freeze-dried eggplant or feta at those storage-food companies?

I think Indian ready-to-eat is the best convenience food out there.

Sardines in mustard.

Runs in cycles: sometimes want them for every meal, then months go by with no appetite for them at all.

Also, canned date bread.

What brand? Don't know much about canned bread, but it sounds like a good item to add to my stock

Haven't bought it in a while since I'm not supposed to eat bread but used to get canned Dromedary brand brown date bread at Kroger (seasonally) and on-line at Vermont Country Store (over-priced).

Canned B & M brand Brown Bread & canned Brown Bread w/ Raisins I used to order on-line from Wal-Mart.

Toasted with melted butter or softened cream cheese . . . . . oh, boy, I miss the good old days LOL

B&M Canned Brown Bread w/ Raisins doesn't last long around here.
Gets eaten rather quickly.

Like it enough, since reading this:

Elizabeth says:

In 1999 I made a batch of banana bread in a jar for Y2K! I used the same recipe as this:
http://breadrecipe.com/recipes from Allrecipes.com. I made it exactly as the recipe directed, and it turned out perfectly. It has been kept in our root cellar with my other canned goods – no special treatment, and around 45F year round. The last time we had one was about 2 years ago, and I have 3 left …….This thread prompted me to look at them so I might help answer the questions. The bread has not dried out and is still quite moist, but more so in the lower half of the jar. In future, I will turn the jars upside down once a year to help with this. …….If the jars and lids are sterile and all is done correctly, I would not hesitate to say this will last 10+ years! Hope this helps.


This is the actual recipe:

Banana bread baked in a jar

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/7024/ba...aked-in-a-jar/

I make about 2 dozen per batch. None have lasted longer than 2 years, as they get eaten before that.

But, this I know, they last AT LEAST 18 months, in a cool clean dry root cellar.

If this stuff is moist enough that you need to turn the jar to keep the moisture distributed, it's most likely moist enough to support the growth of botulism. It may last in the jars, but it doesn't sound safe to can--which is undoubtedly why the linked recipe calls for keeping it refrigerated.

I only know of one canned bread recipe ever tested safe for home canning, and that's a pumpkin bread.

For canned bread, I keep some B&M and a lot of German rye and pumpernickel in cans (which I had to order from Germany last time, but it was worth it). I've had German canned bread 5+ years old that was just beginning to dry out a little in the can. It keeps very well on the shelf at unclimate-controlled room temps.

There are canned cakes as well:
