Extending Shelf Life

We all want our food storage to be the most effective it can be. We have the basics covered. We have things that will help us use our basics. Baking Powder and Baking Soda are essential to so many things we cook.

That is why the subject keeps coming up here and here. Well there is one more thing I wanted to mention.  Get those oxygen absorbers ready because Baking Powder and Baking Soda are great to can! Wow!

In fact the shelf life is the same as those basics we store, such as wheat, rice, and beans. The shelf life is 30 Years! Of course, it is best if you have one of these...

These amazing containers, when used with oxygen absorbers, will act as if you resealed your #10 can closed! Amazing! That will help extend the baking soda and baking powder after opening the large #10 can, since we use only small amounts at a time. The use of these two products will turn any "just getting by" emergency situation, to the ability to make satisfying, comforting foods!

Many preparedness stores carry them. Very useful for any canned items!

Just DO NOT put them in the dishwasher as my duaghter accidentally did - they will be destroyed. :(

These jars are called PETE jars.
