IamZeke Just pay a bit extra to get the mylar that has a zip close seal on it.

That way when you slowly work through your mylar stored food you end up with handy spare bags.

You can make your own O2As by mixing Kaolin clay with Vitamin C powder.

Ascorbic acid absorbs O2 and makes some water as a result. The clay will soak up the moisture.

Of course, you'll need to make sure your clay and C are scrupulously kept dry.

Premade O2As are cheaper than using this mix, but down the road when you can't buy them and you can't seal up unused O2As to keep them from triggering then this mix should work well. This is also how medical and low oxygen O2A's are made. You would need something to fashion packets of it with, though. Empty tea bags perhaps.

GrizzlyetteAdams The parfleche worked great for the First Americans who lived in low-humidity areas.

But in high humidity areas, the rawhide needed to be waterproofed or at least made water-resistant.

Here are some ideas for doing that:

Here's a rundown of how to waterproof fabric for food use. One recipe calls for beeswax. The "vegan" recipe calls for pine resin & jojoba oil.

Dried food storage

So, I'm just starting to get to the point that my storage is an issue (used to be jerky (As an example) never had a chance to mold in a plastic bag.

Some did this year, so I'm looking at cloth or canvas bags for dried meat, grains, fruit etc.

Indians used the parfleche

I'm probably going to try some pillow cases.

Open to ideas/discussion. (Yes, milar, a vacuum and a small packet of rice would probably work, but I'm looking at the more.... Primitive ways.)
