Default Lds Dry Pack Cannery List

Does anyone have a current list for the Dry Pack? I have never been before and would like to see what they have available before I go. I know that they are in the process of re-doing the items they will be providing. So I am aware that they are discontinuing several items as well as introducing new things-- but any list will do. Any help would be greatly appreciated at this point. Also if anyone has any really good recipes they would like to share using the food storage items--I would love to try some. Or if there is a thread already covering this same topic please LMK. TIA

Does your ward have a cannery specialist? They should have a list. If not, the cannery has one, just stop by and grab one next time you're in ogden.

Go to http://www.familyfoodstorage.net/con...MAY%202006.htm to check out a list for the Lindon Dry pack. The list should be the same. According to that location, what I had heard about potato pearls being discontinued is not true, but who knows?

Thank you for the link. I was able to get an order form from a friend to look at. We were told yesterday at church that the current potato pearls are being discontinued due to the fact that the shelf life is not long enough. But the good news is that they are replacing it with potato flakes instead with less butter. I guess by Jan 2008 all the changes should be announced.

Default Pouch v Can

Does anybody have a preference between pouch or can? I have very limited food storage space for a family of 6. I already have 13 or 14 cases of canned #10 items and have run out of room so I was wondering if the pouches took up less space.

I was also wondering about how you close a pouch after it's been opened. Cans come with 2 lids per case so I was wondering how I would close something such as a pouch of powdered milk if I were to only use a cup or two at a time.

Let me know.

BTW, does anybody like the refried beans from the cannery? We love refried beans and I was wondering if it's a good way to save space (powdered beans v refried beans like rosarita).

Thanks for your help,
Becky

Default POuches

I like the pouches because they hold more and are flexibe so I feel like I can fit more in the same space. I'm not positive but that's how I feel... they are also slightly cheaper for the packaging which makes them a better deal IMO.
When I open them I put them into a tupperware container up stairs. I think you could maybe use giant chip clips to close them but it would be hard to seal them up again. In that way cans are an advantage. But I hate round things and I keep everything in Tupperware modular mates so pouch or can when it's open I dump it into it's own container and upstairs it goes. HTH

Default Question regarding Sealing Mylar Bags

Could you use a "food saver or "seal-a-meal" type device to re-seal the mylar bags?

Thanks

I had a friend who had mice chew through her mylar bags, so just be sure you have a good mice-free place to store them.

I personally prefer the cans. That way I'm not worried about mice, puncturing, tearing, etc. They also stack well.

It's probably something you'll just have to try and then decide for yourself.
