What are the best long term foods to store that I can go to the grocery store and get today
Im cycling my long term food storage. I am going to buy what I traded out as the exp date approaches. (still going to eat the foods I cycle do not like to waste) So now im wondering what does everyone recommend for long term storage. Several conditions. Must last 2 years, easy to make, and has to be in an average grocery store. Any suggestions are appreciated. I have been doing this for years but always like to think of new things I may like for long term disaster preparedness.

Have that, thinking more along the lines of what long term comfort foods more or less. Rice will go a long way, have the canned meat, wondering about other long term foods.

powdered milk and crisco.
salt, hot sauce, vinegar (many uses)
powdered drink mixes.

the beauty of first and third lines is you will NEVER use them until you absolutely need them. Unless you like reconstituted milk (ugh!) or countrytime lemonade (also yuk) BUT they will not go bad if left sealed. I also keep hefty amounts of yeast, both because I am a bread baker and because it can be stretched to infinity (sour dough, wine, beer etc.)

Salt has no shelf life. It lasts forever until used.

Stock up on all the salt (iodized or not) and let everybody else feed you because you added salt to their food/soup/stew.

Oatmeal and beans are good keepers. Besides canned meats, I have canned beef stew, soups, and chicken and dumplings. I mark the expiration date with permanent marker on the tops of all of them so I can see at a glance which should be used first.

According to many of the paranoid yib-yabs on this website, you are already WAY too late OP! Think about it: if you rush out NOW and buy bulk candy bars, cheap vodka, worse instant coffee, tiny canned hams and 'hand lotion', you and all the other Pockclypse minded compatriots can locate yourselves somewhere underground for a caffeine, pork and sugar fueled circle jerk, and who cares if the world ends! Seriously though, I wish you the best in your long term storage plans, and always remember, never eat anything from a can that spits at you when you attempt to open it!

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 48363511


I agree with this but also would add sugar.

Salt leaves the shelves quickly in the UK during a cold snap so i buy during the summer. Vice versa with sugar, I buy in the winter.

The importance of these two items are two fold. They have no use by date AND both are used for preserving food.

If you have these you can preserve your own food, or trade with others.

I have two 220 liter food grade bins filled with 1 kilo bags

My own little "odd" quirk are peppercorns.

The term "Peppercorn rent" comes from the time they were that valuable that they were exchangeable for a full years rent.

PLUS, i like peppery soup lol.

I have 5 kilos which i reckon will see me out.

Raisins. I know many hate them, and so did I month ago or so. They are very nutritious and they can be stored for a veery long time.

Hi OP, If i understand right the fact is that if food stuffs have not been canned correctly they are going to rot and give off gas. This causes pressure to build up in the can and so "spits" as you pierce it.

A LOT of cans and jars now a a notice on the lid saying "if you can press the lid down" DO NOT EAT IT. This can has also gone off BUT worse than that, the seal has broken and even more bacteria has got in.

Hope that helps

I have found the best thing for long time storage, whether it be because of civil unrest, or becuase of laziness for not wanting to go out when it is cold. I bought a dehydrator. It can dehydrate everything. I haven't tried water yet.

I can dehydrate fruits, meats, veggies, almost anything, and then store in airtight bags. They have never gone wrong so far and I have been using it for over ten years. I even have an old freezer that died and I keep it outside, filled with several hundred pounds of dried foods, all locked up, and availible when needed.

That way, you don't have to worry about storage life, or storage room.

How about all different sorts of baking mixes for comfort foods? The ones that just require water. Cakes, muffins, cookies, brownies, breads and others.

Re: What are the best long term foods to store that I can go to the grocery store and get today
Brown sugar and maple syrup are also great for enrgy and fuel sources. I have a friend who hunts a lot in Alaska and he carries brown sugar with him in a baggie for energy.

Something else that is FANTASTIC to always have on hand is Moringa leaf powder. I buy an Organic Moringa leaf and mix it with applesauce or sprinkle it on various dishes...Moringa contains 7x MORE Vitimin C than Oranges,
4x more Vitimin A than Carrots
3x more Iron than Spinach
4x more Calcium than milk
3x more Potassium than bananas

Moringa is called "the miracle tree".Nutrition wise it has no equal. You can even grow your own Moringa!
I purchase mine from a place in India. It seems to be the only place I could find that actually sends you authenticated and time stamped documents on the product. 8-10 pages every time you order from them certifying that your Moringa is really Organic and freshly made/potency.

For anyone that may be interested, this is where I purchase it from; www.organicvedamoringa.com

I would NOT suggest purchasing from the company ilovemoringa.com
When compared side by side to the OrganicVedaMoringa, it is a very pale green with a lot of white specks in it which tells me this is a very poor product. The OrganicVedaMoringa is a beautiful, pure bright ,dark green. Almost fluffy in texture. It is a fantastic Antioxidant, immune booster, and gives you incredible energy without any jitters or shakes.
