Crisco will store indefinitely unopened, and is important for making doughs. (And frying, too.)

Lard: The other oils will go bad in a short time (8 months to about a year) lard keeps forever if stored right. I melted mine and then ladled it into sterilized canning jars that were heated in the oven to 250 and then put on simmering lids. They sealed immediately. Just fill them to about 1/21-1/4 inches from the top of the rim. Lard has a bad reputation but it is animal product and better for you than some of the other oils. It has the added value of being satisfying to the stomach and will help fill up the family. Of all the oils (except bacon grease) it is the best tasting in a pot of dry beans.

Wrap butter and margarine in foil. The cardboard boxes can absorb odor and make the butter or margarine taste off. The ziplock bags are permable. You can also take the sticks out of the box and stored them in the freezer in jars with lids. (Source: Unknown)

Fats & Oils-General Information

From Alan's Stuff: Prudent Food Storage

Fats and Oils
http://athagan.members.atlantic.net/PFSFAQ/PFSFAQ-3-2.html#Fats

All oils are fats, but not all fats are oils. They are similar to each other in their chemical makeup, but what makes one an oil and another a fat is the percentage of hydrogen saturation in the fatty acids of which they are composed. The fats which are available to us for culinary purposes are actually mixtures of differing fatty acids so for practical purposes we'll say saturated fats are solid at room temperature (70ºF, 21º C) and the unsaturated fats we call oils are liquid at room temperature. For dietary and nutrition purposes fats are generally classified as saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, which is a further refinement of the amount of saturation of the particular compositions of fatty acids in the fats. --- CONTINUED at LINK, above ---

Storing Oils and Fats
http://www.preparedpantry.com/index.asp?PageAction=Custom&ID=14%20

The human body requires the intake of six types of substances for survival: Fats, carbohydrates, proteins, water, vitamins, and minerals. Certain fatty acids are essential to our health and fats and oils are important components of our food and their preparation. Fat is responsible for much of the texture, appearance, and taste of our baked goods. Since fat is both required for human health and an important part of our diets, we should include fat in our emergency preparedness plans--some combination of butter, margarine, vegetable oil, olive oil, and shortening. (Oils are liquid at room temperature; fats are solid.) Though we need to store these foods to maintain our lifestyles and our health, they represent a particular food storage challenge. As oils and fats age, they oxidize. Oxidation is the process that turns fats rancid. Rancid foods not only taste bad, they are unhealthy. As fats and oils breakdown, they become toxic. These oxidized oils promote arterial damage, cancer, inflammation, degenerative diseases, and premature aging.1 So it is important that we store fats properly, use all fatty foods well before they become rancid, and discard those foods that have been stored too long.


So what is the proper way to store fats and oils? Three conditions accelerate the oxidation of fats: ... --- CONTiNUED at LINK, above ---

Image Here's a link to the shelf life of many oils:

Shelf Life of Vegetable Oils and Butters Weights and Measures Conversion guide
http://www.soapnuts.com/shelf.html

This chart should be used as a helpful guide, please ask your supplier for more information or to find out the type of oil you are buying.
Shelf life can vary greatly depending on storage containers, location, opened, etc.
Most oils can successfully be frozen for longer storage.....you may also add natural anti-oxidants or preservatives
(I prefer to refer to them as extenders) to increase your shelf life, some examples are mixed tocopherols, ROE, wheat germ oil.....

(To see Shelf Life Chart, go HERE: http://www.soapnuts.com/shelf.html )

Shelf life of Crisco

Image
How long can I keep Crisco products on my shelf?
http://www.crisco.com/About_Crisco/faqs.aspx#faq_crust

The shelf life of a shortening or oil product depends a great deal on how it has been stored and handled. For the best results, Crisco products should be stored in a cool, dry place away from strong odors, direct sunlight, and sources of heat (stoves, dishwashers, and refrigerators).

How to Store Oil Safely

Image
http://thesurvivalmom.com/2010/04/08/how-to-store-oil-safely/

Polyunsaturated oils can turn rancid before they actually smells that way, and rancid oils lose much of their nutritional value. There's evidence that rancid oils contain free radicals, which can be a health threat. What's a fried food lover to do??

Oil can be stored safely but will never have the long shelf lives of our other long-term storage foods. Keep in mind the four main factors that affect shelf life: --- continued at link above ---

Storing Oils
http://selfrelianceadventures.blogspot. ... -oils.html

Our bodies need oils and fats in addition to other nutrients to be healthy (hey, I'm not a health expert, I don't know all the details, so don't expect a scientific research paper here, just know it's true). Oils make our food better looking and better tasting. Sure, you won't need oil or fat in everything you cook, but how are you supposed to make chocolate chip cookies in your solar oven without a bit of fat to go in them? Okay, I know you can substitute applesauce or ground beans for the oil, but it's not the same, you know it's not. If you're making chocolate chip cookies, I'm coming to share them with you, and I like them with fat!

Fats are solid at room temperature like shortening and butter. Oils are liquid at room temperature like olive oil and vegetable oil. Some oils are better suited for storing than others. The best liquid oils I have found for storage without spending my childrens' inheritance are --- Continued at link, above ---

I tried putting lard in the mason jars like Readymom suggested and they sealed just fine . I also stored a small un opened tub of lard and while I was at it I vacummed sealed some cooking oil in pint jars . I don't know how it will be when I open it . I am scheduled to open it in December of this year , that will be 2 years stored .

Health Benefits of Coconut Oil
http://www.organicfacts.net/organic-oils/organic-coconut-oil/health-benefits-of-coconut-oil.html

The health benefits of coconut oil include hair care, skin care, stress relief, cholesterol level maintenance, weight loss, boosted immune system, proper digestion and regulated metabolism. It also provides relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, HIV, and cancer, while helping to improve dental quality and bone strength. These benefits of oil can be attributed to the presence of lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, and their respective properties, such as antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-fungal, antibacterial and soothing qualities.

Coconut oil is used extensively in ... ---CONTINUED at LINK, above ---

Storing Fats & Oils

Fats and Oils in Food Storage
http://apartmentprepper.com/fats-and-oils-in-food-storage-2/

Image

When first getting into food storage, the main things that come to mind are canned goods, staples such as flour, sugar and salt, meats etc. Most of the time, fats and oils are left out of the initial food storage effort. However, fat is an essential part of our diet, and a great source of calories at a time when a high calorie intake may be required, or if the diet consists of mostly grains and beans. Fat is also necessary in maintaining the taste and texture of food.

The main challenge in storing fats and oils is the relatively short shelf life. When stored for too long, fats get oxidized, which causes it to get rancid. Rancid fat not only tastes bad, it becomes toxic and blamed for many ills such as heart disease, inflammation, atherosclerosis and even cancer. Let’s look at commonly used fats: --- CONTINUED at LINK, above ---

Includes:
  • Butter
  • Ghee
  • Shortening or lard
  • Coconut Oil
  • Olive Oil, Peanut Oil and Vegetable oils
  • Tips for storing oils

Shortening aka 'Crisco'

Image

http://everythingunderthesunblog.blogspot.com/2011/02/fats-and-oils-are-difficult-to-store-in.html

Fats and oils are difficult to store in a long term supply, but your body needs them to stay healthy. I've exchanged oil with shortening in my storage because shortening has a much longer shelf life.
In January of 2006 (5 years ago) I bought vegetable shortening in 3 types of containers;
1) a hard metal can with a metal lid that had to be taken off with a can opener (which I don't think they make anymore)
2) a soft cardboard type container with an aluminum lining inside and an aluminum peel off lid protecting the product
3) a soft plastic container with a soft, white peel off lid protecting the product.

The shortening in containers 1 and 2 were ... CONTINUED at LINK, above ...

Shortening

Image

FOOD STORAGE TIPS
http://everythingunderthesunblog.blogspot.com/2008/11/book-2.html

Shortening: I have substituted shortening for the oil in all my recipes because of the longer shelf life. Oil has about a 2 year shelf life, unopened shortening has 10+ years. If you can still find the hard lid shortening (not foil lids) they have an indefinite shelf life. Store shortening in a cool, dark place. Opened shortening has a less than one year shelf life. After opening shortening, melt it in the microwave or solar oven, pour it into mason jars and vacuum seal it for a longer shelf life.
