Lol! I thought they canned because there was no other method of preservation for the food grown--besides drying.

8 - 12. I keep months worth of various items on hand but not just for us, when stuff happens there are always neighbors in need. Several years back we had an ice storm and the entire area was pretty much stranded for a week plus. Our house became the super market (free of course). Here is a link to a really good sight to point you in the right direction.
Storage Duration of Food
Honey, Salt and Sugar should keep indefinitely if stored free of moisture. Watch out for additives in the honey. It is possible to buy honey with water and sugar added. This honey generally doesn't crystallize like pure 100% honey does when stored for a long time. If there are additives, there is no saying how long it will last.

Some people just love their sweets.
I think they sell dog food in the same tubs.
