    I taught organic chemistry for > 20 years and worked with many compounds much more moisture sensitive than sugar. Some would decompose just exposed to air.
    I've heard it from reputable food storage sources I trust (from LDS) that you can keep it in your attic or your garage.

    Honey! Yes I agree honey is much better than sugar cane granules. It is more expensive by far but it is superior.

    I have around 60 pounds of honey...I also brew with it so I’m not just a Pooh bear...

    Yes honey is much better! It can be used as an antiseptic to treat wounds, and ingested has healing properties.

    I've brewed with it, but not mead. I add it to a hard cider ferment I call "cimead".

    I've thought of getting some hives but don't want to deal with the bear problem (electric fencing).

    Most of those LDS #10 cans are supposed to be good for at least 25 years if you don't put them in really warm temps.

    Bears would be an issue, but you could elevate the hives so the bears couldn’t reach them. No need for electric fence then.

    Do you mind sharing your Cimead recipe?

    he white flour's good for 10 years they say
    "White flour can be used in breads, baked goods, and more. Each case contains 6 no. 10 cans. The estimated shelf life of this product is 10 years if stored in a cool, dry place. See nutritional information in Details tab. "

    Annie, I always thought that "white flour" was more for cakes and cookies. Does it have a superior or long term usage for prepper storage?

    Ya know, I'm trying to stay away from refined carbs. But my family really, really likes my French bread. So I do make it every so often. Two loaves (the size of a pound cake) will probably be nearly gone by the end of the day. In an emergency, I'm sure warm bread fresh out of the oven (or solar oven) would be a welcome thing. If you're using strait up all purpose flour as opposed to bread flour, you need gluten. The recipe calls for bread flour, salt, sugar, water and yeast. That's all. No dairy.

    Flour's also handy for tortillas.

    This might sound odd, but I've never seen any packaging marked "gluten." I'm not even sure what it is.
