Sugar beets, sorghum, honey, spruce honey, maple, birch, there are plenty of sweetener sources, but few salt sources. Salt to ferment veggies, and preserve meat. That is a tough one.Statistics: Posted by sageprice — Tue Nov 28, 2017 2:34 pm

This brings back memories, lost a bet to a long bow buddy. He bet me that he could hit a target with his bow I couldn’t hit with my rifle. He placed the target on the ground behind a rock then lobbed arrows up high to drop behind the rock. I couldn’t …

Wood bums of the forties made do with just a 22lr. They are quiet, stealthy, and deadly. Even if I could afford an AR15 I would still have it chambered to a 22. Spraying the woods with lead is just wasteful and excuse for well placed shoots. You worr…

I just posted about this on another thread.

I have a BS in Food Science.

Canned food does not go bad on the pull date. That date gives an identifier, should something have to be recalled, as well as indication of when something should be replaced, but it doesn’t mean it’s no good the day or week after it expires.

Having said that, food degrades from the moment it is picked. It can be preserved to last longer, but it is constantly degrading, softening, darkening, losing vitamins, etc. The fats go rancid with time.

Have I eaten food past its due date? Yes. Do I eat things 5-10 years after? No. Whether it looks or tastes fine isn’t the issue. It’s whether the food still has much nutrition left in it. And that is on a continuum. From the time it is harvested on, the food is degrading. It may not make you sick. That doesn’t mean it’s good for you.

And, just as an example, about a year ago I got some gluten-free pasta out of my stores. It was well past the due date, but I used it anyway, because I figured–what could go bad with pasta? The next day I woke up with bloodshot, puffy eyes and other symptoms of having eaten something that wasn’t good for me. I’m pretty tuned in to how my body reacts to things (need to be after having celiac.) Twenty years ago I might not have noticed the reaction, but I did have a reaction, even though the pasta looked/tasted fine.

Sorry Anita, but when you are starving, you just want to make it till the next planting season.

This is why you keep a low profile. Try not to look to fat and this is a time to diet. Remember those hungry hordes will be dead with out water and shelter. HMMM, no tap water, no heat, no narcotics, and they have to walk to get to the next town. No food is the least of their troubles. :gunshooting:
