    Hello All: I opened some white rice and red pinto beans, which were stored 6 years ago. They were in sealed mylar bags inside of food grade 5 gallon buckets with sealed lids. I had also put oxygen absorbers in both bags. There were no bugs or contaminants in either bag. The rice looked...

    I couldn't believe it. My favorite was the 25 pounds, assorted types including rice for $150. I have just taken it for granted because my Walmart has been OK but WTF?
  3. Food and water
    I searched for this on this site, but found nothing. I've watched a few You Tube videos about fake plastic rice from China and read some about it not being true. I don't know what to believe! Anyone have any realistic knowledge or info about this? :confused:

    I am building an addition to my home, and I have the foundation poured but haven't built the floor yet. If I were going to hide a lot of stuff in the new crawlspace, now would be the time to do it. I'm considering putting 450 pounds of rice and beans in there. That is about 80% of my total...

    For those that may be interested in what happens if you store rice in a bucket without a mylar bag.. In going through our storage we came across an old 5 gallon bucket that we had forgotten about, that had white rice in it with no mylar bag. It was 8 years old, it turned a tiny bit brownish...

    Hey guys. I'm obviously new here, but I've been researching long term food storage and am up to date on most of the basic techniques for doing so. I'm in the planning stages of getting my food ready. I have to acquire my buckets and pick and store the foods that I want to keep until I get...

    Is plain rice as opposed to rice mixes (like rice a roni) preferrable? I know the cost is lower, yet I always read that we should serve what our family is used to. There's also the issue of convenience of a rice mix. Storage of smaller mixes is also a factor. I looked in the forum, but...

    So lets say I am going to fill up my dehydrator with some veggies and when they are done I place them in a zip-loc bag, after squeezing out all of the air. So this method gives me a year or so of storage time? What if I was to place multiple zip-loc bags inside of a Mylar bag with an Oxygen...
