Survival water equipment

The Holy Grail of Self-Sufficiency

Things like this can last years or decades:

  • Hard Grains (wheat, corn, kamut millet, dry flax spelt, triticale) 15--20years
  • Soft Grains (rolled oats, oat groats, rye, barley, quinoa) 8 years
  • Rice: White rice will store for 8 10 years. Brown rice will only keep for 12years
  • Beans (soy, adzuki, blackeye, garbanzo, kidney, great northern, lentils, lima, mung, pinto, etc.) 8--10 years
  • Dehydrated vegetables (broccoli, carrots, celery, cabbage, onions, peppers, potatoes, etc.) 8—10 years
  • Dehydrated fruit 10--15 years
  • Dried dairy (powdered eggs, powdered milk, whey powder, cheese powder, cocoa powder, powdered butter or margarine) 5—10years
  • Flours and ground products (All Purpose Flour, unbleached flour, whole wheat flour, white flour,cornmeal, cracked wheat, gluten, wheat flakes, mixes, etc.) 5 years
  • Pasta (Macaroni noodles, spaghetti, etc.) 10—15 years
  • Pure honey, salt, sugar, and sorghum molasses can be kept indefinitely as long as they are kept free from moisture. (Make sure that your honey does not contain additives. Sometimes water or sugar are added to honey. Pure honey will crystallize when stored for a long time. Impure honey will not.)
  • Garden seeds or sprouting seeds will remain viable for 23 years (The exception is alfalfa, which will keep for at least 8 years.)
