I have an unconventional question.... I was thinking about the thousands of dollars I'm putting into food prep, and how food lasts much longer at colder temps.... as described in the table, here: http://survivalacres.com/information/shelflife.html
Well, unfortunately, I don't have a nice cool basement to store stuff in. And I'd hate to spend thousands of dollars every 5 years or so, replacing the majority of my stash.
SO... I was thinking: My mom has a large chest freezer she would like to sell....
I was considering putting my most sensitive food items in there, such as freeze dried and dehydrated fruits/vegetables, mostly (in #10 cans). But maybe other things too (powdered milk, powdered eggs, potatoes flakes, pasta, etc).
Do you see any problems with putting #10 cans of freeze dried or dehydrated foods in there? Will get they freezer burn?
Aside from canned goods, which I'm not planning on using for long term food storage, is there anything I shouldn't put in the freezer for extremely LONG periods?
Thanks a ton,
