Hiya guys and gals!
I have been reading over the posts and something occurred to me that I have not seen addressed and I am curious as to your thoughts. So here goes:
This year I started a garden because my goal is to can and set back as much food as possible for my family of three. I am of course storing store bought as well until I reach my goal. Eventually, I want my garden to produce enough veggies and stuff to have a year's worth of food stocked up.
I have decided based on the amount of food that we eat per meal that I will be canning using smaller jars. I will do it because I am a stickler about wasting food.
NOW....the big question: For all the items like 10# of rice or beans or whatever, when these are stored and the SHTF, let's say you open one of those 10# pkgs. How long will they last once opened? How do you store the other 9 pounds until you use it? I don't know if I missed this answer somewhere, but I didn't see it specifically addressed and my OCD is demanding I find the answer
