Some of the best long term storage treats that we have found are the dehydrated potatoes and onions for restaurant style hash browns. We also like the freeze dried pineapple chunks, apple slices, and MRE cookies and cakes. The MREs are reasonably priced and store very well. I've had five year old MRE cookies that are still good to eat, especially the Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake!
If you catch the hash browns on sale from Emergency Essentials they are actually priced better per ounce than the hash browns that you get from the grocery store.
Sweetheart likes the freeze dried strawberries slices, but we have been disappointed by the amount of strawberry dust at the bottom of the can. About half the can is dust, and I guess we could use it for strawberry pancakes or other baked goods, but we haven't experimented with it yet.
You can find some excellent deals on freeze dried foods, which has a shelf life of over 15 years, and incorporate it into your everyday menus.
Question for my experienced readers: What and where have you found great deals on long term storage foods? Leave a comment...
