    Wink Vacuum sealing food

    Things seem to be getting kind of iffy out there. I just wanted to remind everyone that you can vacuum seal all kinds of goodies in canning jars. When poop hits the fan, having some comfort food might not be such a bad thing. I have lived the last 7 years on an extremely limited diet of about 10 to 15 foods. Food fatigue can happen when constantly eating the same food over and over again. You can also become allergic to it too. How I worked this out was to rotate my limited foods On a 4 day rotation. I would eat chicken and winter squash on day 1. Day 2 was bison and spaghetti squash, day 3 was duck and green peas. day 4 was elk and cow peas, I was able to eat rice or rice cakes daily. By waiting at least 72 hours between I would actually crave the meal.

    Anyway, a lot of people donít realize you can vacuum seal chips or crackers for years in canning jars and have them taste like fresh baked when you open it! I vacuum seal my brown rice too. I have eaten it 5 years later and could not tell ! The secret to storing brown rice is to get it fresh milled. If buying in bulk, it will have the mill date printed on the bag. You may have to call the company and find out what the mill date code is. But get the brown rice vacuum sealed in the jars ASAP! It does not work very well if you buy rice that has already sat on the shelf for 6 months.

    I have been known to vacuum seal Justin peanut butter cups in jars and hide them thru out my storage. That way you wonít be expecting them and they will be a total surprise!

    Other things that vacuum seal well is pancake mix. I buy a brand from Costco and itís made with gluten free type flour like cassava, tiger nut, etc. it says Paleo on the front. Costco also has a large tub of organic Ghee- Clarified butter. I remove it from their tub and put in canning jars and vacuum seal. It will sit out on the counter opened for at least a month and in the jars indefinitely. This is an awesome change up of foods. The pancakes only take water to make and the ghee can be slathered on! You can also vacuum seal real maple syrup in canning jars.

    My point being, the sky is the limit! Buy now and vacuum seal all your goodies!

    Hope this helps keep you from food fatigue!

    How do you vacuum seal the jars?
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.Ē ---C. S. Lewis

    You can vacuum seal by hand with a brake bleeder or with a vacuum sealer machine.

    I grabbed these videos off YouTube and have not watched them all the way thru.





    You will have the flat canning lid on the jar, then the white vacuum lid, turn on and it will suck the air out and vacuum seal the lid on...
    you can also seal in plastic bags but they are not mouse proof!

    Thanks Ima. I was wondering how oxy absorbers would work for a jar. I have used them for storing in 5 gallon buckets and they work remarkably well. The vacuum produced is powerful.
