How long canned food can last at room temperature AFTER it's been opened?
This is a discussion on How long canned food can last at room temperature AFTER it's been opened? within the Food, Health and Fitness Survival forums, part of the Survivalist, Prepper, Bushcrafter, Forest Rangers category; Wow. Back on point:
I don't have long term food stores per se, but I don't think you can go wrong with a few cases ...
Wow. Back on point:
I don't have long term food stores per se, but I don't think you can go wrong with a few cases of MREs and some freeze dried Mountain House, Augason Farms, Wise etc. I have been watching videos on Youtube about eating various MREs from different countries and older Korean, Vietnam era C rats etc. Makes for good viewing if nothing else. I have even been watching somebody named Emma eating Balut, Century eggs, bugs etc. I'm amazed at some of the ways different cultures preserve and eat things I would never consider.
Last year I was stuck out at the farm. It was raining so hard I would not let my wife drive out to pick me up. The camper was comfortable, warm and dry but my food was dwindling fast. By the time she got there after about a week, I was down to Ramen noodles. Water is never an issue with the MSR Sweetwater and the Katadyn Pocket filters but I also had 10 gallons of fresh in my Aquatainers. From now on, before hunting season, there will be plenty of mres and dehydrated food stashed in the camper.

Yep the danger zone is surely 40-140 thanks for bringing that up. Things like jelly and other foods high in sugar can usually stand being held at room temps. Ketchup too..but its the low ph which helps it I think. Heard opened jars of Mayo is fine to store like that..but never put it to the test.
buy smaller cans of spam, beef stew, etc
if you can not finish it and can not keep it cool... feed it to you pigs, chickens, of wild game...
I would not trust mayo passed an hour or two..thats just me
