RE: butter, you can buy Butter Buds or Butter Bud sprinkled at most groceries. Stores well and comes in smaller containers but I don't know how the cost compares to canned butter.

Re: Non-Perishable food suggestions
Can we discuss the shelf life of all of these foods?

I've already slowly started acquiring beans/rice and other foods each time I go grocery shopping. My main concern is...I've been expecting WW3 for like 6 years now and it hasn't happened yet. I want to know if I'm storing this food that it's not going to go bad after four or five years.

Let's discuss shelf life and vacuum seal methods. So far I plan on purchasing Mason jars and a vacuum pump sealer from www.pump-n-seal.com

Here is a great link giving the approximate shelf life of stored foods:

Does anyone know the shelf life of those really BIG cans of tomato sauce?

The ones I have must be at least a 4 pound can.

For those that are expecting .. or for family members with infants & small children :
Meyenberg Goat Milk
Goats milk is the closest milk to human breast milk. Its easy to digest.. excellent for colicky babies as it is highly digestible. Its sold powdered and also as a liquid evaporated milk. I found the powdered container at a local health food store.. and have seen the evaporated cans of it in some grocery stores along side cans of evaporated milk.

It is also a healthy substitute for cows milk in recipes.

Honey is a great item...just remember NOT to feed it to children to 1 yr of age!

'Unsulphured' 'Blackstrap' Molasses is another great item to keep on hand.
Use it to make baked bean. You can also mix a a little bit with some granulated sugar to make your own brown sugar. Add a little water to your homemade brown sugar and simmer to create your own pancake syrup. Its great in homemade cookies & gingerbread. It's a good source of minerals & vitamins. Organic varieties are available in some stores. Keep in a cool dry place. Unopened is usually good for 1 yr. & up to 6 months after opening.

Canning butter or any dairy yourself at home isn't safe (google that)

Moonshine.

If this is accessible around your area(you can make or buy it.... ILLEGALLY), get some. It can be used to clear wounds because of its alcohal content, and can be gargled like mouthwash for the same reason. moshpit (just added that 'cause it looks funny. Disregard.)

Re: Non-Perishable food suggestions
I know this is a bit off subject(though I suppose this still falls under non perishable) but have you considered any defensive options. Also, and I already know this is rough, but have you thought of your neighbors? No reason to go raiding your own store if someone else can cover the bill...

Some of my friends and I debated the hell out of this during this last deployment.
