With liquor you must be careful of ultraviolet light. Exposure to UV will convert ethanol to a nasty aldehyde that will make you sick. Even though liquor comes in glass bottles, the glass does not stop all of the UV. Always keep liquor and wine in the dark.
Bread may only keep a week or two at best, but if you're up for baking your own bread, whole wheat flour will last a few months, and white flour will generally last about one or two years. Wheat and rye grain, when stored in a sealed container in a cool dry place will last indefinitely. If you're a survivalist, you'll want to have a flour mill in your inventory. Grind your own flour to make bread, and you can have fresh bread for years from your grain supply. :)
Honey. Antioxidants etc. This is just crap. Antioxidants in food is a fad that people squander there money on. Honey has no health benefits that why it is illegal to claim so on packaging. Once again you have regurgitated Internet tripe.
In the 80s I moved into an apartment in which the previous tenant had left a can of tomato paste sitting on top of the oven. Not wanting to throw it away, I left it there until after a long time (years, I think), the can exploded and left an indentation in the ceiling, as well as tomato paste all over.
My parents bought me pasta from Sams Club, more than once it was full of bugs and turned to brown stinky goo. It was disgusting. It must have been there a while. I found out they keep tires way too long and they have already started to rot a little when they put them on.
I make large amounts of hardtack for this exact reason!! I have heaps of old recipes from the 1800's that use it. I make mine in squares about 7cm across and about 2cm thick. I then package these in groups of 4 and wrap in foil. I then vacuum seal them and write the date of manufacture (not that it matters). I do the same thing with Pemmican but I seal these in bars of 140g and I seal them singly. Pemmican s the ultimate survival food other than hardtack!! If you want to make pemmican then please do not use store bought rendered suet. You really need to make it yourself. I do this and it's very rewarding and also a bit of fun. I found a huge butcher chain that processes whole animals and they sell suet at quite cheap prices.
I literally just moved and couldn't find my coffee creamer but did find skim milk powder that expired 2 months ago. Desperate times called for desperate measures and I used the milk powder in my coffee. I actually prefer it now and will buy it from now on instead of creamer as it is cheaper! I was curious if milk powder made this list, was very pleasantly surprised and relieved!
1)anything dry and isolated will not decay
2)only clean dry white rice will last, most has bug larve that will eventually hatch in your pantry
3)alcohol is multipurpose, medical, and currency
4)unless botulism, canned exportation dates are a consumer confidence advertising and sales tactic. It will loose flavor or texture, but not a health risk.
5)honey can kill babies because botulism
I was stuck on a FOB in Afghanistan some years ago, and we'd been stuck on rat packs for weeks. The news comes over that we're getting some fresh meat in the next resup. We were so excited until the 'fresh meat' turned out to be half a NATO pallet of Spam. Then followed 4 weeks of eating nothing but spam cooked in different ways. I swear if anyone puts a can of this stuff in front of me again, I will insert it up their fundamental orrifice.
