Long Term Food Storage Containers: The Bucket

Long Term Food Storage Containers: The Bucket

The five gallon bucket and its little brother the two gallon bucket. They hold hands on bulk storage of foods. Some people will use the five gallon bucket to store large quantities of grains and beans. I like to use them to store meals. Unless you are trying to feed a small army. I can’t imagine ever needing to store beans and rice in bulk quantities like that. Some things can be grown and a pound bag of pinto beans will plant a lot of beans! The plants that grow from that many beans, will make more beans than you can store. So I use my five gallon buckets to provide a second layer of protection to things like meals in Mylar bags. This also lets you grab a bucket and run out with a large amount of prepared meals instead of fifty pounds of rice.

Five Gallon Storage

Long Term Food Storage Containers: Part One

Everyone has an Idea as to what is the best storage container for long term food storage, and a lot of the time, that idea is based in personal preference. Other times it is purely, what’s the best tool for the job. I have a preference for the  Mylar Bags . They come in huge sizes to small sandwich bags you can even get a size to line a five gallon bucket so you can stack protection functions. I like to prepare my long term storage meals in small portions seal them and then store large quantities of these in bigger storage containers, that way I can open the bucket, can, or jar and pull out what I need without effecting the shelf life of the other food stored. Mylar Bags are an amazing way to store long term dry foods like beans, rice, and freeze dried foods. Take any  Mason Jar Meal Recipe and just put it in a Mylar bag and you have a meal that is tough and packable. Continue reading

Where and How to Store Your Long Term Food Storage

Food storage is a big topic. Lots of people talk about what to store, how much to store, how long things store for. What about, where in the heck are we going to put it? I have yet to meet a home maker that has enough kitchen cabinets. Even the normal house with the nicest kitchen, always seems to run out of space. You have to have a place for all your “every day” food, then there is the mixers, the bread maker, popcorn popper, coffee maker, and on and on. Just storing your cooking utensils, plates, dishes, cups, and glasses, takes up so much room and we haven’t even started on the pots and pans yet. Continue reading

 Vegan Recipe For Long Term Food Storage, Another Over looked Prep

       I had an epiphany today. I was browsing face book and saw a recipe for Pinto Bean Quinoa Sloppy Joe’s. It is a Vegan recipe on a vegan sight. I am not a vegan, but I love to see different ways to use foods to make different recipes. So I went and started reading. pinto beans, quinoa,  some olive oil, onion, green pepper, crushed tomatoes, chili powder, paprika, now that sounds good! I mean I would eat that, and it’s made with beans and quinoa other veggies and some spice. So I clipped the recipe and stored it. I noticed at the bottom of the page links to other meatless burgers and looked at a few of them.         Continue reading

How to Create a Deep Pantry, Full of Food You Eat and Enjoy.


Food is often an over looked idea when it comes to personal responsibility. I think almost everyone is guilty of thinking; I will just put some cans of green beans and the like into the deep recesses of the pantry shelving for a rainy day. I wonder just how many people know what is actually in their pantry or food storage. Continue reading

 We Discuss a Bean stew recipe I found for food storage on a Wonderfull webpage Seasoned Citizen Prepper.

My small change to the recipe is to cut it in Half so that a smaller pot can be used

Measure out

Add 3-4 quarts of water.  Add bouillon or salt to taste.  Then add any other meats, vegetables, potatoes or seasonings you have on hand. Bring to a boil and then let simmer for two hours.  You should have enough to feed 4 people for one Meal.  This is thick and hearty.  You will be warm on the inside and full with one large bowl.  Kids usually eat half a bowl.
