long term storage

  1. Food and water
    Back in 2012 I scoured this forum and took some advice on long term storage of nuts. General advice was they don't last more than a year, however if you read through enough posts from MikeK and other find enough exceptions, there were some gold nuggets of "well, you COULD do this to maximize...

    Several years ago there was some controversy in how much oxygen was in Wise freeze dried pouches. Does anyone know if that issue has been resolved? I have been doing taste test videos and was wondering if I should do some on Wise pouches? Here is the playlist for my Mountain House videos -...

    Lately I've noticed a number of online ads and suggested products on Amazon from "Bannock Outdoors" offering what appears to be camping/LTS food pouches. Anyone know more info about them? Most search terms I could think of just yielded a bunch of hits for Bannock bread. Though I did find their...

    The importance of long term food storage is increasing as one may run into natural disaster or emergency. If you are preparing for the possibility of a food shortage or disaster, you need to have the necessary materials for long-term food and product storage. Long term food storage requires...

    I don't know wether to post this here or in the religious section, so mods, please move it to wherever you see fit. I've recently gotten into the idea of prepping, and I would like to start soon. I read somewhere on this site that the priorities should be water, food, shelter, so I bought around...

    I came across this website, that says you can store this bread long term. I am curious if anyone has tried it and how it faired after a period of time? http://www.joscountryjunction.com/totally-amazing-bread-in-a-jar

    I just tried my Provident Pantry potato soup mix for the first time. I got this from emergencyessentials and I honestly thought it might not be that good because it isn't a big name brand. Fortunately I was pleasantly surprised! I cooked it according to the directions (add water, whisk, boil for...

    So I am very new to dehydrating and long term storage of food and water. Anybody have any tips to all those beginners out there like myself that are spending way too much time on the internet trying to find good information?

    I've seen a lot of threads talking about spam, or various other canned meats, and they can be found all over the forum. I thought with this thread we could make a central place to post reviews of the various canned meats and be able to find them easier (since I'll make this a sticky)...

    OK, I've been keeping a months worth of regular food in my house for years. I've done the mylar and 5 gallon bucket thing with some stuff. But I have never bought one of those package deals. You know, "3 months food for two, in big cans." One worry I have is menu planning. Do any of the...

    Need some help preppers. What items (in powder) beside cheese and eggs can I purchase in bulk to store. I already have pasta and elbows so Id love to have some cheese and even eggs in powder form. Anything else in powder form I can get locally (sams) ? Thanks, New Prepper.

    I was able to make a run to the LDS cannery in mid-March. But I could only get a partial fill of my bulk order (I have my own long term storage equipment). I called canneries in Greensboro NC, Columbia SC, and Knoxville TN and though very nice and polite the managers were very clear that I was...

    In designing a food storage room, the idea came to me that I really have no idea what the volume for 1 years worth of food is. So I decided to figure it out. But first I had to make some assumptions. - 1st Assumption: Caloric intake would require extreme activity for one year - 2nd...

    I am ready to start storing some larger (for me anyway) containers of food, beginning with rice and beans. I think that what I want are the food grade 5 gallon buckets. I have reviewed some previous/similar forum discussions, and I know that many members state that they are able to get these...

    I'm working on my long term storage stuff and am wonder how people maximize their plastic 5gal pail storage when packing more than 1 item inside. For a single item stored in a pail, it's easy. Use a big 20x30 mylar bag, full it up, O2 absorber, then seal it (maybe even vacuum it), then close...

    The time may soon come that I have to bury guns and ammo. ***ATTENTION MODS, I AM NOT SUGGESTING THAT I AM LOOKING TO BREAK ANY LAWS, NOR AM I ASKING FOR ADVICE ON HOW TO DO SO.*** I have come to the conclusion that mylar bags inside 6" PVC pipe and fittings is not the most user-friendly way to...

    I'm all about pinching pennies and this video has some great suggestions I hadn't thought of. Taught me four new things in just over three minutes!

    i have my seeds in mylar bags in the freezer.......was wondering if i should also vacuum seal them? would like to hear other peoples methods?
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have read a lot of questions concerning the storage of food preps. I understand the need to store canned goods and freeze dried food in metal cans and under cool dry conditions. I built a storage pantry in a back bedroom and storing them under normal house climate conditions is absolutely...
