I encounter canned ham everywhere, from small tuna fish sized cans (3.5oz) to the larger 15oz + sized cans. Prices range from about $1.00 to just under $4.00, respectively. Great for ham salad or adding to an omelet. Yum..

Ah...From where you said you shop you must live in RI or Mass. I used to love Ocean State Joblot.

That sounds like the Bristol brand canned hams I get here. Not very good at all. The Dollar General had DAK for a while and I scored a few, but they ran out and haven't restocked. They probably won't. They're bad at having one time runs. Unfortunately, Walmart and Sams don't sell DAK here that I've seen. But I'm always in a hurry so I may have overlooked them.

Yeah but you've got HEB. I miss that place. The chaos was always fun.

Keep checking the canned meat aisle at Wally's, usually when I see them I clean them out and they don't restock for a couple of weeks.

They have some great deals on their food at Walgreens...just have to watch the flyers.

This same size product is on sale at Walgreen's, this week.......for $2.50. (Up from the $1.99 sale price the previous times it was on sale.)

You can read their weekly ad, starting every Sunday, on their website. www.walgreens.com

If you sign up for their Walgreens store card, you don't have to fool around with clipping coupons for sale items. Just let the clerk ring up the card, and you will get all the weekly sale prices on the items you are buying. (If you don't like the idea of a store tracking your purchases, just fill out the application in the name of "Frequent Shopper".)

They don't have a big food section. But, I agree that they run good sales.

If you do this, be sure to also pay in cash as they often track the card you use as well. this is how you can do receiptless returns at Lowes/Wal-Mart ect. Cash is king.

I have 15 - DAK 16 oz. hams in my preps, got them at CVS on sale for $2.50 each.
CVS has them on sale about every three months. They don't stock many at a time so I had to get a rain check for the balance they didn't have. Took me another three trips to get all of them.

I see canned hams. They're everywhere. They don't even know that they're canned hams.

Hi, first post here.
How close to expiration date do you wait to use your stored food?
Does your family like it?
Also, do you practice recipes that you will use in a disaster setting? By that I mean when you may not have (after a week or so) bread, fresh milk, cheese, veggies, like onions, and such.
Great site.

I forgot to say that here in NC the Dollar General stores often have canned ham for $3 or less when on sell. I can't remember the brands.

Not in El Paso we don't. I have to head east for many hours before I start running into HEBs. I wish we did. Or Aldi.

Great site.
Canned and dried foods last a very long time past their "best by" date. Think decades for cans. Since they're sealed and sterile, they don't ever actually rot as long as the can remains sealed. Over time they will lose flavor and texture though.

The recipes I'll use during a disaster are the sames recipes I use today. Part of food storage is storing what you eat and eating what you store. I'll be using more rice and beans and stuff, but I've been cooking with those for so long that using them is like second nature anyway.

The hard part comes from the fresh things you'll run out of, like you said. Bread is easy enough to make. For veggies and stuff, I'll use dehydrated or canned.

Like most I have the smaller canned hams, I am looking for a few of the larger 5lb ones when I can find them.



In my perfect world, I would like to have about 100 of these in a can

Hah, the one in the can ain't gonna look nothin' like the one in the bottom pic. That looks good!

The only time I see the 5 lb canned hams, they're always refrigerated. To me, that's just weird. If it has to be refrigerated, why not just vacuum pack it to save money on the can and show the customers what they're buying? What's next, refrigerated canned soup?

Get most of the little hams at Walgreens, always watch their ads, and always pay cash-no matter where I buy preps

Default I was going to recomend Hormel Black Label.

This is a great ham and will store well. The cooler the better but I have eaten these hams 3 years out of date.
