Welcome to ZS!

I, too, have found your work to be well done and exceedingly helpful. Thank you for your contribution and for encouraging preparedness and self-reliance. I eagerly await the new edition.

BUMP

There is a new version of the LDS preparedness manual on the http://www.ldsavow.com web site. Just downloaded it and am beginning to review it for updated information. It is dated 1 Jan 2011, lists as v5.03 and is subtitled "Member Edition".

The last version I had was dated in 2008 so I thought I'd resurrect this thread to let folks know about the new version.

Thanks Persistent Nomad. For the record, in a revived thread, this is not an LDS website. A lot of that content comes from LDS materials, but the website and the manual are not LDS materials put out by that church (take a look at lds.org for comparison and materials there - art and stuff is similar, but lack of copyright, subscription thing, and many other components of this make me feel this way). Please don't make the mistake of thinking this is what Mormons teach, discuss, live, eat, and breathe. It's thought-provoking material and I think it has a place for those of you thinking about food storage and whatnot.

15 years old is still young for Spam... from their website:

"What is the shelf life of a Hormel Foods product in an unopened can?
The processing techniques utilized by Hormel Foods makes the canned product safe for use indefinitely if the product seal remains intact, unbroken and securely attached to a can that has been well maintained. It is suggested that all canned products be stored in a cool and dry environment to keep the flavor adequately preserved. For maximum flavor it is recommended that the product be used within three years of the manufacturing date. After that period of time, the product is still safe to use however, the flavor gradually declines."
Insert witty quote here.

Oh yeah, I totally forgot about the Spam taste test with the cans I bought when I first moved to Maryland in 1996. I have 5 large cans. Last family camping trip, I took one and used it as a meat additive to chili... y'know, to make the chili more meaty and substantial. It worked. The kids don't like chili anyways, but the other adults all ate it none the wiser. No one had puking diarrhea. I suppose I'll give the other cans a shot in another 15 years. :lol:

Don't all canned goods have a nigh-indefinite shelf life if the seals are intact, though?

No. Many vegetables (tomatoes in particular) definitely spoil.

Just found this thread a few days ago and made my way down to the 'Bishop's Storehouse' in my AO. No proof of membership was required or asked for. The white haired workers (volunteers?) were extraordinarily friendly and helpful. There was a bunch of teenagers working while I was there. The older people in charged called them 'young men and young women youth' like it was a title or something. I was fairly impressed as these kids were hard working, clean cut, and helping out on a Saturday when I'm sure they could be doing other things.

Anyway I bought a whole bunch of dry-pack wheat (gallon buckets), 5 gallons of honey (in quart cans), powdered milk (gallon cans), rice (3 - 50 pound bags), beans, sugar, oats, and some empty food-grade buckets. I would of bought more but it was so cheap I felt like I was taking more than my fair share. I will be back next month. I could not be happier with my experience there or my purchases. Once I get everything put away and organized I will post pics in the "food porn" thread.

Thanks for the info.
