Did you know rice has a shelf life of 25-30 years?

Rice Shelf Life 25 years

Rice is cheap, easy to prepare and can last a long time when stored properly.   Rice is a global food staple and a great source of nutrition.  White rice, in particular, is a must add item to your food storage preparation.  It is high in caloric value, can be added to many meals and even flavored for variety.  Consider storing 30 – 60 lbs of rice per person for a years supply.

Store rice in a tightly sealed container. Food safe plastics (PETE) containers, glass jars, #10 cans (commercial size) lined with a food-grade enamel lining and Mylar®-type bags work best for long-term storage. Use food-safe oxygen absorbers [Bj5] available from food storage supply stores to preserve rice quality, and protect from insect infestation. #10 cans will hold approximate 5.7 lbs (2.6 kgs) of polished rice.  From USU.

Action defines a person. You are labelled by these actions. Those who witness these actions label you. Those who are around to see most of your actions have a better definition of you as a person. You are the only one around to witness all of your actions. So how do you define yourself? What if you do nothing, how then would you be labelled? With this in mind, I guess you could say that I am many things to many people. I am a Boy Scout, Father, Husband, Soldier, Clerk, Survivalist, Entrepreneur, Dork, Dweeb, and many others, but what I like most is being a writer. I love to create things that people enjoy. In the end, I hope I am labeled as an all around good guy.
