The quantity of herbs and spices will depend on how much you use. How often, for instance, do you need to buy salt, or pepper, or oregano? Salt is the most used "spice" so you would need much more of that. For instance, a family of 2 adults uses approximately 8-10 pounds of salt per year.

Spices: Long Term Storage

FOOD/SPICE STORAGE longterm

:?: ":meemo"

Curious on what is the best thing to store in my mylar bags and food grade buckets for long term SHTF scenario. -snip-
Also spice/sugar/tea/SALT storage suggestions. Whats the shelf life if i do in mylar bags?? Im thinking of long term nnutrient levels too.

:arrow: "MikeK"

Whole spices last longer than ground, so it's always best to buy them that way. They last pretty well in mylar with O2 absorbers. They might lose some of their initial fragrance over time, but when you grind them, you'll find that they retained a lot of it inside their structure. If you buy them from online bulk suppliers, they sometimes come vacuum packed and they last a long time that way also.

I've used 10 year old spices that were just fine. You might need to adjust the quantities, but that's why we taste as we cook anyway.

Also remember that you can grow a lot of your own herbs quite easily. They're usually decorative too, and would make nice landscaping plants.

:arrow: "goose3"

As far as spices, I've put away a lot of dehydrated onion and dehydrated garlic in mylar bags with O2 absorbers, in smallish bags in a 5-gallon bucket.

I've also stored a lot of peppercorns (I like pepper), about a pound and half. You can buy 'em in bulk at places like Sam's. I've also prepped 5 small pepper grinders of the type you can get at Aldi for $1.69, and stored the peppercorns from each in their own mylar bags; I figure there's some barter value there.

I have a lot of other spices, oregano, basil, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, a bunch of others. Smallish packages so I can break them up into different buckets which will eventually let me put them into separate places.
