Another quick tip: if you're using canning jars that are second-hand (nothing wrong with that), just make sure to run your finger along the top edge to feel for nicks. Discard any with nicks, as they can compromise the seal. Your finger is usually more sensitive than your eyes with glass.

I just remembered that a friend of mine, located in central CA, often goes to a local Mormon church canning place. You can put anything you want into #10 cans, not glass. Might be something to look into...

Thanks! I actually have a few cases of their stuff from their site, way cheaper than any other place and almost as cheap as wal-mart buying it by the bag!!

Hey Todd,

I've heard that the LDS advocate keeping a years supply of food on hand. I've been told to go to their website to buy some canned grain. But I haven't found where they actually sell that item. Do you know where they sell it?

also i did find this site. Does anyone know when you would choose "hard white" vs "soft white" vs "hard red" wheat?

I guess this is the place to buy it. Its in Utah, so I'm sure its an LDS group. They replied promptly and said:

"Thank you for your email. The hard red wheat has a nuttier taste and is a little heartier than the hard white wheat. The soft white wheat is a lighter wheat that can be used for pastry and such. If you have any other questions feel free to contact us. Thanks again."

Canned grain. Cool stuff.

Thanks for that. I found out that they do not charge shipping, so the net cost is .92/lb delivered. Compared to beprepared.com, seems like another LDS outfit, which is $1.17/lb for a greater amount.

The privacy policy also seems to be in order. Thumbs up for that. Pardon my cynicism but I had to check.
