Default What did you do to prep today?

I saw a similiar thread on another site and thought it would be good here as well.
I picked up 6 case of quart jars for canning today.

Discovered that www.mredepot.com now sells vacuum-sealed brown rice in #10 cans!

Ordered some to see if this solves the rancidity problem.

Thanks for posting the MREdepot site. That's the cheapest I've seen for #10 cans of anything!

my understanding is that the rancidity is because of the oil in the germ
that goes bad with time. Nothing, including removing the air, will help that. at least that is my understanding. Ask momof23goats...she's one of the profs here.

Nope. The website said the rice will remain good as long as the can seal isn't broken. IIRC, the cans are nitrogen-flushed, and include an oxygen absorber, which should retard oxidation of the oils in the rice.

I've never had a problem with anything I've ordered from www.mredepot.com, but will report to y'all when I start opening the cans.

Right now, I store vacuum-packed jars of brown rice in the freezer; sure would be nice to reclaim that freezer space!

Furthered my professional education (new skill makes me more valuable and less likely to get cut as cuts begin).

Ran 3 miles before going to work. Exercise = #1 prep thing you can do.

All because those mean ol' Tea Partier's made the gubberment shutdown. And then zerocare will be here for your great-grandchildren.
