50 pounds of pinto beans.
Some lighthearted prepping advice coming your way in the midst of the sporty events of the last several months.
Just went to Sam's Club last week and picked up 50 pounds of pinto beans for long term storage. I'll be storing it all the same way I stored the white rice a while back, which is in one gallon Mylar bags, with a few 1gm oxygen absorbers tossed in each bag. The bags will be sealed with a hair straighten iron, bags labeled with the date, and place inside food grade (HDPE 2) five gallon buckets with sealing lids. The buckets protect the bags and the bags keep the environment out.
My research indicates this should keep the beans good for over twenty years. If I find anything that would indicate otherwise I'll let you know. If any readers have input, please comment.
