#10 cans

  1. Food and water
    I checked back a bit on threads, sorry if I couldn't find this and its out there somewhere.=) I'm trying to find out the brand of #10 dry canner that the LDS use? We're thinking of starting a little food processing coop, and considering the Mormons have been using canners for decades, I might...
  2. Food and water
    Looking for a list of brick and mortar stores, (aka Walmart, Costco, Sams Club, Bjs, Target, Mom and Pop, etc...), who sell Augason Farms products or other brands in store. I am fully aware of ordering them online but I like to handle a product before I buy it online. Stores in eastern Pa, Nj...

    In your opinion if I have to feed 2 adults how many real servings will we get from a Mountain House #10 can. I'm thinking one decent meal. Thanks.:)

    Sorry if this is a lame question but I am looking to diversity some of my food supply and have been browsing the Mointain House website and have some odd questions. 1) The MH site shows the servings per #10 can but how big or what are the approx dimensions of the cans themselves? 2) If you...

    Hi All Sorry if this is in another post, I cannot find it. Me and the wife are finally about to make another long term food purchase. I remember coming across a different supplier at one point, and reading that their stuff costs a bit more than beprepared, but is higher quality. I remember the...

    Newbie's 3rd post here. What are the groups thoughts on the above subject. Personally, if there is a situation of water to be purified, MRE would be my choice. Only down side is they tend to "bind" you up if eaten daily. There has to be a happy medium, so what's the word. Thanks for the...

    Safecastle posted on their facebook page that Mountain house price increases are in the pipeline. I quote, http://www.facebook.com/Safecastle This means we have 2 months to buy mountain house before the price increase scheduled for July 1. Food - I would "love" to buy some more #10 cans...

    So I'm looking to buy some pre-made food for SHTF storage. What brands of food and mre's are the best for the price on the market right now? I was looking at the wise grab n go buckets. Mainly because of the easy storage. But im wondering if their is anything else that is on market at comparable...
  10. Food and water
    Ok did a search here and I find info on both items but nothing comparing the two. I've found a non member friendly LDS cannery that sells bulk items or you could can the food in #10 cans. I like the idea of the number 10 cans because of the small quantity that can be used to help with...

    Hi all, Newbie here. Just signed up a month ago and have been reading almost non stop. Man my head is spinning! I just got started on my long term storage. So far I've put away 50# of white rice, 10# of Pinto beans, some elbow macaroni , some oatmeal and grits. All in 1 gallon sized Mylar...

    I would like to stock up on some food and then be done with it... It seems like freeze dried food allows you that option with a 25+ year shelf life on the #10 canned items. I am wondering who has the best quality out there. I have seen some called Mountain House.... Are they good?

    First, I don't work for them, don't know them, etc. Ok, so much for the disclaimer...lol. For those of you who do like the product, and I realize that's not everyone, just got notice from Costco that, and I don't know how many weeks it'll last or how many "kits" they have, but the offer is...

    I was looking at some of the preps we have put away along with some recent experiments of items and have came to an interesting conclusion. While some items in #10 cans are great (Wheat)... others are less then wonderful. Powdered eggs - there are about 94 "egg servings" in a #10 can.. and...

    I noticed at my local Walmart that the Augaston Farms #10 cans have been moved to the camping section. It doesn't look like they are ordering more and the shelves are less than half of what they were a month ago. They have not marked them down though. Just wondering if anyone has noticed the...

    I just saw a post here about storing Cornbread mix in boxes, and it reminded me of something that happened with my #10 cans of Cornbread mix... I love cornbread, being from up north, we aren't too familiar with it, but ever since having it in the Navy, I just love the stuff! So, in my preps...
  17. Food and water
    Hello all. I am new to this forum, however I have been into Self-Reliance/Survivalists for about 3 years now. I have questions about storing food and thought that maybe you all can help. I have a number of #10 cans I purchased online of a variety of foods. I have opened a few to test them...

    Hi all! I'm definitely buying some Mountain House food to add to my prep. My concern is the serving sizes. I see, for example, their beef stew will serve 'about 10'. We are a family of 5, so, can I use half the can, and then save the other half for later? I dont want to make the whole thing...

    I'm going to be stocking up on some Mountain House #10 cans and was wondering what is your favorite flavor. I'm going to get a few different flavors and would also like to know which to avoid (if any). I'm going to pick up some of the small packs and try them myself but wanted to see what...
