I've posted this video before, as it changed the way I approached long term food storage of staples... it is long, but LDS are the pros... I now vacuum seal my staples in quart canning wide mouth canning jars, with a jar adapter....

my short term supplies are rotated through their shelf life, and donated to the local food bank as they near best by date... in 2004 I discovered that the "chunky" soups and stews could be heated in a water bath (two families used the same heat source) and eaten directly from the can so hot water other than the heated cooking bath was not needed for clean up

the vacuum canned jars are replaced in their original shipping cardboard boxes and stored under my bed
