...and that's what I'm doing research on at the present. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I'm wanting to move on beyond just guns and ammo, I have a couple of months of grocery store food and freeze dried survival foods each as part of my desire to take care of the wife and myself. Food, water and equipment are as important in there own right. While at a store where bulk items like beans, rice, flour and pastas can be purchased, the thought struck me as to how do you store a large volume other than a 3 to 5 gal bucket with oxygen absorbers and then have stock that could go bad before you can use it. As every one using this part of the forum already knows, the newbie dumb guy just discovered that there's a wealth of info online and especially through U-Tube on the subject. Hope you'd bear with me on asking questions as right now my primary goal is learning about canning dry goods and hoping that it will be an avenue to get the wife interested in what I'm doing.
