This is the third installment of the mini-series about repacking food for your long-term food storage program.
I started this project looking for a way to repack food for long-term storage that was better than using the typical Mylar in bucket. I was looking for something that offered more flexibility and was more space efficient in storage. After trying several different methods, I determined that, while it wasn’t perfect, the Mylar in bucket method of storing was superior in some very important aspects.
If you’re storing for only a short period of time, other methods would probably work just as good, but when working with a large amount of food, for the amount of work needed to actually get the food to a point where it will be stable in long-term storage, storing in large buckets is the better option. Even with the sometimes hit-or-miss nature of sealing the Mylar bags, I still find it a better option.
