    You can't beat that. Saves you all the trouble. Just check the dates.

    I buy a case flat of the jarred name brand stuff when it goes on sale for a $1 - the sauce is just a natural go along with the buckets of pasta ....

    Spaghetti sauce is one of my basic preps. I put up sauce in 1999 for the Y2K crisis, and used it as late as 2006. It was fine. The high acidity makes it a long-storage gem.

    For long term storage keep in mind that some members here when storing tomato paste long term have seen the acidity make the can leak after many years. Don't just buy tomato paste/sauce and expect it to be in the can after 10 years. I think 5 years is safe but don't just bury the can where you could never rotate it.

    most of the cans from the better brands should have the poly liner now - but I stick to the glass jars for long storage - the metal jar lids have been protected for decades now with either a liner or an enamel coat ....

    Correct. I buy in glass only. None of my jars showed any type of corrosion on the coated lids after 6 years in storage, however, so the new coatings are working well.

    Every year here, the local store has case sales. We try and stock up on veggies, sauces and some other stuff. Last year, they had a sale on Hunt's spaghetti sauce for $6 a case (12). The tomato sauces (12) and pastes (24-7oz.) were $5 a case and stewed tomatoes (12) for $7 a case. Not a bad deal. We use the paste and stewed tomatoes for my canned chili.

    Well it could be used on any kind of pasta, and instant mashed potatoes... you do store away instant potatoes don't you, one of many food items that gets overlooked but goes with everything, and easy to raise, potatoes!!!
