Good replies, whiteangel!

OP, if you get mylar bags, get the small ones! I got some huge ones, and of course I can't move them at all now that they are full. LOL. The smaller ones hold about 5 lbs each. Even a 13-year-old can move that.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33538514


I only buy the 1 gallon sized. I'm not a big time prepper that gets tons of buckets and filled them with the 5-6 gallon mylar with wheat. Too heavy and we just don't have the money to do what I would really like. Just do the best we can and over time, it is amazing what can happen.

dried beans and rice
 Quoting: Fist McKraken


But how do you store them? Soak eggs in mineral oil and they last for 20 years without refrigeration.
 Quoting: Genghis_Khan


Mylar bags. You can seal em up and they will last 20-30 years.

I agree with rice & beans...and honey.
 Quoting: GhostProphet


This. Also add Aramanth. Also it's very easy to make powdered eggs. You can also preserve your own meats with kosher salt or you can make a brine with salt, brown sugar, or smoke your meats.

Honey lasts forever and it is a good ointment for wounds as well.

Where do you find mylar bags? I know you have to get rid of the oxygen in the bags as well. I've heard you can buy oxygen absorbents, but heard you can use hand warmers and they work just as well.

I've bought from them and the bags are nice and thick. Great quality.

Free dried eggs up to 30 years. Pickled eggs will last about 5. Fresh laid egg in mineral oil stored in a cool dark space, maybe 6 months.

A self replicating flock of hens with land to grow their food will last you a lifetime.

find and join "Weed Walks"

Dried beans go "bad". When they get old (they donot keep more than a year) they turn into little stones that cannot be cooked soft, and too heavy to carry. They also take too much fuel to cook and too long to prepare.

Meat is the only thing i can think of. It can be dried, smoked, causing it to be light weight, and/or travel on its own legs with you.

From my understanding, all grains in the freezer for at least a week before you do anything with them storage wise.

If money is no object freeze dried is probably the best option. Lasts for decades and if you need to bug out you can carry a lot.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 45439626

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 66162669


So..if OP is a typical fat gutted merkan..that problems already solved.

I think thats why merkans dont include fat in their preps..they dont need to as each one of them carries enough blubber to last em at least 40 years.

I guess you can do nothing really.
Or do you know the future??
You dont have all the needed parameter to prepare yourself even for tommorrow.
The best you do is being yourself, every moment.
With this you get the right to do whatever you want.
Conciousness (yours to be pracise) will guide you and help you.
Just do your thing and you will be prepaired the best :)
Trust have faith hower they call it.

Re: What is the best Prepper food for long term storage in your opinion?
Also, FYI on the eggs:

Eggs can be kept un-refrigerated ONLY if they start out un-refrigerated! Once they have been chilled, they must be kept that way. My boat cruising friends taught me that. They buy fresh eggs (not chilled) and keep them stashed on the boat wherever they are least likely to get broken. I don't know how long they will last, though. I assume they will still go bad at some point.

For long term storage, powdered eggs are safer, IMHO (although I'm sure not as tasty).
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33538514


If you soak them in mineral oil they are rumored to last 20 plus years.
 Quoting: Genghis_Khan




sorry guy but I don't know who sold you that BS .... you'll get 6 months possibly 8 months coating eggs with FOOD GRADE mineral oil ... the longest preserving longevity is a year using the water glass immersion method ....

all preservation methods require cool, temp steady and no lite storage conditions ... I have pop coolers that are currently used for cushioned & protective storage for critical tools and supplies .... the coolers will be my egg storage containers

being unrefrigerated is not near as important as being FRESH and UNWASHED .... store bought eggs will not store worth a damn because of machine scrubbing at the egg factories

20 years if you go with canned dehydrated eggs .... buy in #10 cans .... don't attempt as a DIY type job - you'll poison yourself

 Quoting: SPUD




just one of those idiotic urban legends that got started somehow ....

do you know what's happening right now? ... most of the grain in this country is in freezing temperature ... sub zero temps across the grain growing northern states ... and the grain will be in those conditions for months ....

guess what? .... all the insect larva/eggs will survive very nicely .... nature provides

no need to freeze prior to starting your long term packing procedures ... in fact you will be causing possible problems - freezing induces moisture .... you bring your food, to be packed, up to room temp and provide a humidity free environment (AC for summer months) ....

what keeps the insect larva/eggs from hatching and spoiling your stored food is the air voided conditions in the mylar bag/food grade bucket ... no air - no bugs .... just an added benefit to the modern food packing methods

Dried semen.

Healthy, nutritious, full of protein and easy on shelf space.

I ejaculated about a million times in BRIEF's mouth and beyond the plus point that he gave me tree fiddy a load, he now has about 8 years of prep stored in vacuum pouches.
