This three-page guide will teach you how to store food for years.
To prepare dry (10% or less moisture) food for long-term storage, oxygen should be removed from or replaced in containers. There are four kinds of containers that can be used:
1. #10 metal cans
2. Heavy mylar pouches
3. Glass canning jars
4. HDPE plastic buckets
All four kinds of containers should be stored in a cool, dry and dark environment for the longest shelf-life.
Because food grade HDPE plastic buckets are oxygen permeable, dry food must be packed in one of two ways for long-term storage. This guide will teach you the proper methods. Keep your family safe and learn the basics behind how to store food for years!
