Decide on a storage method based on the amount of dried food you have and where you plan to keep it. Plastic bags with zip locks can be sealed
tightly, as well as jars with rubber rings and metal locking mechanisms. If you are storing the food in the basement, however, be aware that plastic
bags will not keep out mice or insects. In that case, place the food inside metal containers with tight-fitting lids. Cool, dark and dry places are
the best for storage...
1.Pack the food in the container as tightly as possible, after you are sure it has been thoroughly dried out. Glass containers are practical for
storage because you can easily see if moisture has built up inside.
Check your dried foods regularly to make sure they are not moist, moldy or being invaded by animals. Storage times will be affected by the conditions
in your house. In general, if the temperature is around 60 degrees, then vegetables will keep for six months and fruit for one year. If the
temperature is 80 degrees, then those times will both be cut in half.
