Three Ways to Store Dry Foods Long Term



A couple of summers ago we invested in a Food Saver Vacuum Seal machine and then after hearing so many good things about the usefulness of the jar sealing attachments we decided to go ahead and purchase them too.  I'm so glad we did!  On quite a few things, this little machine has replaced oven-canning in our home (there are still some things I oven-can)

So now I have the ability to store dry goods long term in three different ways depending on what it is ...

 (1) oven-canning

 (2)  vacuum sealing

 (3)  place item in freezer for approximately 10 days, remove from freezer, let come to room temperature, wrap in plastic wrap and store in a tub, etc. 

Knowledge is powerful when it comes to stocking our pantries and knowing how to preserve our food in more than one way ... is priceless!

You can follow me in the additional following ways; each has something unique to offer:
