Ordinary Canned Food For Preparedness

by Ken Jorgustin, Modern Survival Blog:

So often when considering long term storage of food for survival preparedness, people think of bulk rice & dried beans, buckets of wheat berries, and other such dry goods. Another additional consideration should be ordinary ‘canned food’ from your local grocery store.

Why? Because they don’t ‘expire’ as most people think they do, they’re easy to acquire (and often on sale), and you can buy just about any food ‘in a can’ these days…

First let me say this: A good long-term food storage inventory will be well diversified. Part of that diversification should be regular canned food.

The first thing you need to be convinced of is that ‘canned food’ from the grocery store does not ‘expire’. Nine out of ten Americans say they have thrown food away based on ‘the date’, because they are afraid that it’s not going to be safe.

Canned food does not ‘go bad’ on the date printed on the can. Instead of re-writing the justification for those statements, I invite you to read the following articles written awhile back. Then you can come back to this article and continue 😉

Okay, back to the topic at hand… ordinary canned foods for your preparedness…

So first you’re going to diversify your overall ‘deep pantry’, a part of which might be canned foods. But within the canned food category you’re also going to diversify (there are so many choices). However one of the unique advantages to ordinary canned food is that you can buy ‘canned meat’ (protein). While you can also purchase freeze-dried meats for your storage, it’s expensive! Canned food is more cost-effective than that…

Canned Chicken (e.g. Kirkland Signature Premium Chunk Chicken Breast)
Canned Beef (e.g. Kirkland Signature Roast Beef)
Canned SPAM! (Related article: SPAM® For Food Storage!)
Canned Ham (e.g. Hormel Smoked Ham)
Canned Tuna (e.g. Kirkland Signature Solid White Albacore Tuna)
Canned Salmon (e.g. Wild Alaska Pink Salmon)

Chili
Beef Stew
Canned Sardines
Canned Bread (‘Brown Bread’ – great with Boston Baked Beans!)
Canned Butter

Note: Be aware of the calories. Check the total calories per can,
(#servings x #calories-per-serving). You might be surprised how few calories there are in some canned foods (especially vegetables). Having a case or two of canned vegetables may not add up to that many calories (lots of water instead). So choose wisely, especially if you don’t have that much storage space.

You get the idea… So let me ask you a question,

What are some of your ideas specifically for ordinary canned food for ‘preparedness’?
