I actually read that whole thing.

I'm the queen of cooking huge meals just so I can store the leftovers in vaccuum seal bags. I store them in single portions and in the morning before I walk out the door for work, I grab one....whichever I feel like having that day.

Actually those bags are a lot thicker than your average...have to have a manual seal button to use them.
I bought spools of them...probably 5-10k bags.

That's what the pressure cooker/canning is for. Vaccuum sealing makes food last longer, but nowhere near the amount of time canning does.

Yes canning is next for me. I have emergency food/water and the vacuum sealer, so canning is next to be purchased. I hope to master that quickly so I "CAN" get to it!

I need to learn how, and DO IT.

Re: Make your own MRE's...it's easy!!!!!
I'm being serious....I have bought pressure cookers, the big pot thingies to boil bottles, and bottles, lids etc.

I just have never canned anything before....but it's a great thing to learn...one of these years.

You start and then you can't stop.

Just a little precautionary warning.


ETA: And I'm still scared to death of that pressure cooker. I am constantly flinching thinking it's going to explode.

Canning is not that complex. Easily self taught by following the instructions in any one of scads of sources. Just do a batch. Nothin' to it.

Well I never have had a blown lid or a broken jar...I only meant that it scares me because of the sound...and knowing that it is a "pressure" cooker, is all.

I've been canning my whole life ( grew up helping old farm women)...it isn't that difficult.
For fruit, you don't need the Pressure canner, a hot water bath canner is fine.
Tomatos are the same way...
Fruit and maters have enough acid on their own to destroy any pathogens.
You only have to use the Pressure canner for low acid foods, like green beans, corn, meat, taters...

I love to can apples ready to "fry". I don't know if you are a fried apple lover, but it sure is nice to just have to dump a jar in the skillet and add a lil butter and sugar.
The spices are already in with the canned apples.
I also used to make homemade pie fillings out of the fruit.
A Hell of a lot cheaper than buying it, and it tastes better too.
Be sure to use " Clear Gel -A", for the pie filling, it dosen't break down in storage like the other thickeners, like flour, or tapioca.

I wish you luck with your canning...:)
...and thanks for the laugh this morning! LOL..I truly laughed out loud when I saw the pics of what you've been storing in your vaccuume sealer...esp. the pistol..;)
That really isn't such a bad idea, esp. if you would be having to cross water...I'd put some bullets and matches in there too though... ;)
