Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

It's not my video - just a good example. Sorry I forgot you mentioned you already use the food saver. Personally I wouldn't use a O2 absorber in the jar if you already use the vacuum sealer attachment - overkill and extra cost - and as long as the jar is sealed - it's sealed. I have never had a jar ...

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

I love canning jars :) I have a bit of an addiction! Did yiou know you can seal the jars - for dry storage only - with a vacuum sealer? Very cool - no O2 absorber needed and you can seal and unseal at your convenience as long as you have electricity. Here's one of many video's on the subject. Vacuum...

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

I see how you could take that comment both ways - sorry. You can store sugar in a glass jar but if you add an O2 it will get REALLY hard and you might not be able to get it out. Sugar without a O2 is fine. Sugar won't go bad - it just needs to be protected from heat, humidity and bugs. Vacuum sealin...

Re: 10 Most Comon Food Storage Fails Infographic

Yum - all of those sound good. In a long term situation you would have to make any and everything from your own wheat. Instead of storing it away we all best get on with learning to switch over our regular meals - it will save money and be much healthier. I love my hand powered grinder but I have an...

Re: Ask a leader food storage questions here

Hi Goldie :) Welcome! You are correct in that the standard size lids are cheaper and as long as you are storing items that flow easily - pasta, rice etc. you will be all set. I like using wide mouths for actually canning certain items better but I can't think of anything in particular that would nee...

Re: Stupid Simple Cooking Stove

A friend just mentioned that the bricks will break in no time because they are not made for that kind of heat. I am guessing if the bricks were wet it might even be worse. I am interested in what you find out - I'll let you grind out the H block and tell me if it's worth it :)
