Week 31 of the 2011 Food Storage Challenge

$10 Plan
Store 4 cans corn

$20 Plan
Store 4 cans corn and 2 cans peas

We're storing tinned veggies now.  These veggies require no pre-cooking.  They're ready to go.  If you don't have the resources to heat them up, they can be eaten straight out of the can in a desperate situation.  Of course, in a 'normal' situation you could use them in a Tuna Mornay, in a Risotto, a meat pie/shepherd's pie, in savoury mince, fritters or in a soup.

Cans last longer than frozen vegetables if you are without power.  Personally, I have both.  I don't use my canned veggies as much but I am glad they are there.  They will lose nutritional value over time, just as all canned and jars of food will do so it is a good idea to keep rotating your food storage.

If you don't like these canned veggies, you can always store something that you will use.  There are so many alternatives; carrots, mushrooms, beans, capsicum, baby corn, creamed corn, beetroot, asparagus etc.
