What are you people talking about? That stuff isn't guilty pleasure...it's just "food"!

Except that blue cheese...never could develop a taste for that much mold.

Mine had Dolmas and some eggplant/tomato deal last time. Going to have to return the Dolma though...can lid was leaking oil

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

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.

Yes, I keep cans. They are too useful as packaged. But I still prefer fresh in every form.

But I only wanted to make that one point, not start a diatribe against canned goods to derail this thread.

If you like a certain canned food a lot then I'm not going to tell you to stop eating it unless it is unhealthy.

Enjoy your Dinty Moore.

100% Pumpkin. Tons of things to do with it.

I have some corned beef hash that I've yet to try. Looks delicious though. I agree with Zeke, though. I still keep cans and use them, but it isn't quite the same as fresh or frozen.

Do they even sell 100% canned pumpkin?

I know that you can't home can pumpkin puree, only cubes in water. And those a lot of so-called pumpkin cans are actually some other kind of squash instead of risky pumpkin.

Hash is not bad from a can. Fresh is still better but a decent can of hash can be doctored up nicely for a decent meal.

And canned hash is loads easier than first baking a bunch of potatoes, cooking up a roast for hours, and then frying it all up. With those hours saved the canned is good enough once you hit it with some spices, garlic, and onion flakes. I love fine tuna steaks too but canned tuna is still edible enough not to get upset about. I appreciate fine dining but since I once lived on Marine chow it's not like I can complain too hard about an average meal.

Me and the lady it's definitely blacks olives, and pickles. I have to stock a couple cans of Campbell's broccoli cheese soup. And cream of mushroom soup. I know I can make it but it's easy. And albacore tuna are my go to. I think I have almost 30 cans stocked up already.

Edit
Thanks everyone now I'm hungry!!! Actually eating A prep right now, broccoli chedder Bear Creek pasta. Already OK, but way better after. Little doctoring. I do like the ease of cooking this. Just boil water and dumb in the bag and stir

The canned pumpkin I buy says 100% pure pumpkin. No preservatives. Ingredients: Pumpkin. I can't guarantee it isn't squash or something else, but that's what it tells me. I've used it in pumpkin pie and smoothies, etc. I prefer it over premixed pumpkin pie canned items because at least I can add my own spices and such.

I'll be honest, I've never actually used fresh pumpkin for a pie so I can't say how it compares

It's actually from Aldis. Brand is Baker's corner. I'm sure there are other brands, too. Around Thanksgiving/Christmas they have it cheap so I buy a couple dozen cans.


We'll try the hash this Sunday! We haven't bought much of it since we haven't tried it yet so it's definitely on our list. This weekend is supposed to be snowy so it sounds like a good time. Throw a duck egg or two on top.

It likes to stick to the frying pan. Use a nonstick with some oil or a well seasoned iron skillet for best results. Getting a bit of fried crusting going shows you are doing it right. Most brands are pretty meaty, if just crumbled meat, but still pretty bland. Garlic and onions really help. It will take other flavors pretty well too. I even tried it with curry powder and that worked out nice.

It would be extremely boring cold out of the can, but it would still be a solid meal in SHTF. It, tuna, and sardines make up the majority of my canned goods in my LTS food stores.

Krogers has a very affordable version, btw. Even more bland than the other brands, it's still the best value hash option I've found.
