What NOT to Store!

  • Home Canned Butter, especially unsalted, canned butter. (Why? - unsalted canned butter has NO protection from botulism, salted, home canned butter has no science-based process to can safely)
  • Petroleum jelly covered raw eggs. (Why? - there is no protection from microbial contamination. This is a major foodborne illness risk)
  • Milled Grains (Whole wheat flour, Cornmeal, Cereal, Granola) (Why? - quality deterioration)
  • Oily Grains or Seeds (Nuts, Brown rice, Pearled barley, Sesame seeds) (Why? - quality deterioration)
  • Home canned Quick Breads (why? - these foods are not safe for home canning)
