Raising vibrations to help humanity

Storage food is food that has a longer-than-normal shelf life.  It is usually grains still in their original shells/hulls (like Hard Red Winter Wheat or oat groats) and dehydrated or freeze dried.  Olive oil and honey have natural long shelf lives.  Does that mean you have to invest big bucks into Mountain House or other long-term-survival-food products?  No.  There is plenty you can get at your local supermarket and lengthen its shelf life yourself (such as placing in plastic buckets with oxygen absorbers).

There are other foods that you can get your local markets to order if they don't stock it or order from Walton Feed or beprepared.com or other suppliers:  large bags or pails of wheat (hard red winter and spring), honey (super-long shelf life), and other grains. 

Here is a list of long-shelf-life food items available at places such as Wal-Mart or your local supermarket:

Milk, powdered

Potato, flakes

Pasta, all (including Ramen noodles)

Macaroni & Cheese (contains powdered cheese)

Rice, white

Flour

Corn meal

Grits

Oatmeal

Sugar, white

Oil, olive

Peanut butter

Jellies, Jams, Preserves

Beans, dry, various

Vegetables, canned

Meats & fish, canned

Meats, jerky (you can also make your own)

Fruits, canned

Jello

Puddings

Baking items:  baking soda, baking powder

Salt

Boullion cubes

Gravy mixes

Cake mixes

Spices

Hot chocolate, tea, coffee

Drink mixes (Tang, Lemonade, Powdered Tea)

Popcorn (cheap filler / bulk)

Note:  You can get larger sacks of things like flour, sugar, popcorn, etc. at "big box" stores like Sam's, Costco, etc.  Many grocery stores that cater to a Hispanic population usually carries 50-lb. sacks of pinto beans.

 

Prepare menus for one week. Make your menus from long-term-storage food.  Look at every ingredient you will need to make those meals.  Prepare a list from the ingredients.  That's what you should have on hand for one week.  Now, start collecting those ingredients until you have a week's worth.  (Take into account some things like boullion, salt, sugar, oil, etc. will last longer than a week, so your first week will be higher in cost.)  Now, work on your second week's worth of food. Keep doing this until you have as much as you decide you need.

You can also grow or buy fruits and vegetables in season and dehydrate them inexpensively then vacuum ziploc them for long-term-storage.  You can "can" your own butter, cakes, jello, hamburger easily.  See www.endtimesreport.com (Manna Meals). 

Also consider inexpensive barter items such as salt, tea, coffee, ramen, hygiene items, tobacco, etc.  Use these to exchange for other things that you need.

Exactly Mary, just toss it into the bag, I recommend vacuum sealing or at the very list a metal can with lid....

Comment by Bill on March 2, 2011 at 1:37pm
For canning if having a hard time with reusing the lids you can pour hot wax on top of like jelly so it will be sealed shut!

Alex; dumb question; I'm guessing we would just put the pamelo leaves or a clove of garlic in with the rice? Sound like a great idea! (never heard of pamelo leaves - time for an internet search lol)

Only problem with weevils is that they are known to cause food poisoning....not really the type of bug you want to eat under any circumstance.
Comment by Kim B on March 2, 2011 at 12:50pm
Weevils or no weevils, if hungry it doesn't matter.  It's just a bug.

Love the information, thank you for the post.  Weevils in rice.....I recommend using either pamelo leaves or cloves of garlic either will deal with the issue.

Comment by Kim B on March 2, 2011 at 8:49am
depends on what you store the white rice in.  Weevils can't get into certain sealed tight containers.
Comment by paul kawsek on March 2, 2011 at 5:57am
storing white rice for 6months will subject it to weevil infestation and hence keeping quality suffers over time

Thanks Cheryl, I see a few things I didn't think of.

Thanks for the list as this is helpful for those who have been hit hard by the stinking economy.
