25 Emergency Meals In A Jar
Be Prepared With These Easy Dry Ingredient Recipes
Putting together an emergency food storage is a great idea to ensure your family will be prepared and well fed during the event of an emergency. The following dry recipes stored in jars last many years and will require little preparation to enjoy. This is a great way to put those extra mason jars around your home to good use! This article lists 25 fantastic recipes for emergency jar meals that I hope you will be able to use and incorporate into your life.
Getting started on preparing and storing your own dry meals in a jar is not as complicated as one may think. You will however need a few staples to be able to get going. You will need to choose either a FoodSaver method or the oxygen absorber method. The FoodSaver is an appliance that is used to extract oxygen and preserve the food. For this method you will also need to purchase the mason jar attachment. The oxygen absorber method is a more simpler method that involves purchasing oxygen absorbers in bulk (Amazon.com has a great deal on these - see below!). With the oxygen absorber method you simply place one of the absorbers in the top of the mix before sealing your mason jar.
Though these meals can last 5-7 years on the shelf, it's highly recommended that you rotate out your ingredients such as flour, beans, and bulked goods every 2-3 years to ensure freshness and to maintain a strong level of food safety
