Same danger in canning green beans--gotta be pressure cooked and gotta have salt (and maybe a touch of vinegar).

Canning is a great way to save money once you get your system down and you take advantage of sales on meats. The initial costs, a good pressure canner and lots of jars are quickly recouped.

Be sure to box your canned goods and keep them in a cool, dry, place out of direct sunlight for longest life.

But, like all things, preparation (practice) is key. So! does anyone know how to preserve grain(s)?

Go to an LDS Bishop's Storehouse. They will sell you grain in #10 cans. Some even let you go back to the drypack area and can it yourself. They have the machines and show you how to do it. Alternatively, put it in food grade 5 gallon buckets with a 5-6 deoxygenator packets and throw a gamma-seal on it or a regular airtight lid.

Put dry ice in a container, fill with grain, attach lid loosely for 2 minutes or so (till dry ice almost gone) cover with airtight lid. Bugs can't live (or hatch) in CO2.

That's a neat trick, we used to bomb the grain silos with chemicle canisters and if you hung around too long you would end up with the mother of all headaches. grin
