Long Term Food Storage Basics - How to Pack Rice, Wheat, Beans and Dry Goods

I've seen, as I'm sure you have, the rising food prices in the grocery stores. It's time, now, to begin to prepare for not only higher prices, but outright food shortages as well...

Tess Pennington of Ready Nutrition demonstrates some best practices and a multi-barrier process for packaging food for short and long term storage in mylar bags (or large food grade buckets) with oxygen absorbers, a vacuum seal, and a heat seal. With proper storage techniques the shelf life of your food preps can exceed 20 years for most dry goods like rice, wheat, sugar, beans, oats, wheat and pasta.
