blueshoes: I was wondering, my EDC is probably just a typical mum-handbag but it's moderately extensive. Should i unpack my EDC - it's a backpack! - and list off what's in it? It's my go-to for being ready for anything but it hasn't got much classic 'prepper' gear

SA Hunter: blueshoes-pack what you will need-your needs will be different to mine, and most other preppers-and, yes, would be curious what you carry.

What’s your favourite way to store dehydrated veg?
- I’ve been using vacuum pack mason jars but I’m thinking of changing to vac pack bags to save space and to put in bucket so more easily exclude light - I’m also wondering if they need some sort of moisture absorber? I do dehydrate for about twice as long as normally needed so it’s very dry!
I dehydrated cherry tomotoes, kept them in a mason jar in a cool dark place, and they were good to eat 2 years later. The dehydrated banana and apple only lasted a couple of weeks until the mrs found them.
I know that you’re only suppose to store what you use, but if you usually use fresh veg and want some veg available in case fresh isn’t available, it’s harder to keep rotating through it. Most of my dehydrated veg are done purely for storage rather than to preserve excess (I generally prefer other storage methods for that). And my preference is to build up a LOT of dehydrated veg. Problem is how long to keep it before replacing.
