Prepping Success (and Failure)
What's worked for you?
What hasn't? And why?
Four years ago I repackaged roasted peanuts in vacuum sealed mylar bags with oxygen absorbers. Last night I opened a bag. The peanuts were indistinguishable from fresh. The bag was still hard-vacuum sealed when I cut through the seal. As far as I am concerned this was a big WIN.
I have tried similar efforts with saltine crackers. For some reason, I just cannot get them to store past six months. Somehow they go "bad" with a foul, chemical sort of taste. I've tried it more than once, so I know it wasn't just one batch that didn't turn out. Anyway, I've since had to renounce gluten (lived in denial for years, finally had to face reality) so it's not an issue for me personally anymore. Never did figure out why, but probably not a lot can be done about it.
In a crazy world, it's the crazy man who can get by - and it's about to get cray-cray up in here.
