We threw out some cans that were getting ready to pop open. That is bad stuff to eat!
If it is just out dated, we will boil it up to kill what ever is in it then eat it. Not going to be picky when these kind of cans are the last ones left.
For cheaper water purification, you can either use standard household bleach or regular iodine drops. It's a lot cheaper than the tablets.
Canned foods last about forever as long as the can hasn't been compromised. Fruits are safe. Nothing that can grow on fruit can harm you. It either turns to alcohol or fruit mold. While fruit mold is quite disgusting, it's not harmful. Veggies are a different story. If their bulging toss them for sure. you can't boil away botulism toxin.
