    I am looking for 20 or 25 lb bags of dried black beans to store in the traditional mylar/o2/5gal bucket. I find it is cheaper to buy them local and do my own storing vs online like emergencyessentials.com for stuff like this. Its hard to pay $65+ shipping when I believe I can do it for $20...

    Found an interesting set of pages at Bulk Basics | WholeFoodsMarket.com. While their comments about grains and such only storing for 6 months is fiction we all know we can discard, the soaking and cooking times and such might be worth printing. Most of the cooking guides are in the menu on the...

I got buckets from a local bakery and they have a cake smell, peanut butter smell, etc. I washed, I baked in sun, nothing gets the smell out. I dont want...

    I have been checking around for wheat and grains locally but have not found a dealer or feed and seed that knows what is what. :scratch Probably use costco for the sugars and rice... but whole wheat? When I ask about what variety it is the common answer is "brown" :confused: Is there anyone...

    I'm looking to buy bulk wheat berries, and there are so many sources... The closest LDS canning center is a bit far away for me to be able to get there, so I'm looking for online sources. It's hard to compare apples to apples (or, wheat berries to wheat berries, eh?) when some prices include...

    Any suggestions for a place to buy some bulk beans? I found wheat for $8.50 per 50lb bag and rice for $14, but only found small bags of beans. I like the northern beans, but I am open to something else ( as long as I don't hate them). I would like to find something local and save the shipping...
