I would recommend getting a pressure cooker, remember they were the first microwaves (kindly) and they keep food good for years. I have started to believe that I need to can a lot of stuff this year; especially since most things are easy to just can and forget. One other thing to consider is to make an industrial style food dehydrator... simple as all get out and gives added life to all kinds of food. There is a reason that there is some beef jerky that has been found that was still good years after it was made.
