    Great thread thank you BB.. twa on your question. Those seal a meal machines are great for preventing or delaying freezer burn on foods. One of two things are needed to create freezer burn, air or moisture or both. Sealing food in those machines eliminates the air, moisture can still be their but it needs the air to burn and destroy the food product.
    They also eliminate the air, which bacteria need to get too your food, in a non freezer setting. Now not good for anything that contains moisture to start with, but great for rice, beans and other dry products so moisture does not get too them.
    Putting items in your freezer they may sit for a bit, so take a sharpie and date them for good rotation.

    How Many Calories Do I Need?

    May 18, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin



    When planning how much food for your SHTF survival kit, or the amount of food storage in your home, or even the vegetables you might grow in your survival garden — in addition to general nutrition you need to understand how many calories that your body needs to survive and how many calories are in your food plan.

    Default Black Blade..

    You mentioned your relatives have a food vacuum machine? I am surprised you do not have one with all your great prepping? Air is the enemy of food and all things we store. No not in of of itself, but combined with damn moisture. If food is stored minus the air, long term storage can be accomplished.
    Just got a gift of "Smoked Salmon" in "Cryovac Sealed Containers" from relatives in Alaska. Expiration date is a bit away. Air, the enemy of stored food. When putting food up for freezing, it can take some moisture, but not moisture and air, freezer burn, yuk. One has to be eliminated. Eliminate the air and your food will last years.

    Sprat true. I just ate smoked salmon from Alaska, sealed in a vacuum bag and smoked slightly. Oh my God it is good. Yes, take air out of the equation and your food will last for quite a bit.
    Now smoke and salt have been a bit covered here, but we always need a refresher. Ancient remedies besides drying, to extend food products. Jerky and Pemmican type products kept them their mountain Men and their kind alive. God almighty plus the nomadic tribes moving everywhere.
    Food preservation, keeping the bugs out. They need air to reproduce, not their fault. Hell they have to eat. We just have to stop them and live.

    Sell-by, Use-by, Dates

    May 29, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin



    While “expiration” dates are rarely found on canned foods, most canned food products have a “use by” date stamped on the top or bottom of the can.

    Ever wonder what that actually means?
