I was reading that it's best to stock up on tuna canned in oil instead of water. Why is that?
NEVER drain your tuna?!!?!!? you need to EAT that oil!they already hit it regarding the calories...and also, even if you don't eat the oil with the fish, it's a resource. Might not be pleasant, but any food oil can be used for some other cooking aps. the fish water is worthless.
:beercheer: that is awesome! :2thumb:Several years ago we canned 300 pounds of Albacore tuna.
Bought the tuna off the boat.
We packed it in olive oil and pressured canned it.
After that it was hard to eat store bought.
Tuna in oil is hard to find.
Here, in Ky, tuna in oil is always at Dollar General..more so than in water.Outstanding point. I do take a lot of fish oil pills, but why waste a resource.
The part that sucks is it's now hard to find tuna in oils...especially on sale. This 'health' kick that some are on is making it harder for preppers.
We do buy our milk at the grocery--it's Amish...whole milk; pasteurized, not homogenized...still has the cream on top.You're fortunate in your areas...the 'healthier' options they're foisting on us are going to be bad for preps and the prep company folks use it to short cut and rip off consumers. Would you rather have whole milk or 2% for a famine or fat free? They're not throwing the milk away, the processors are selling that and what you're getting is a by product after that extraction.
From their stores, we get honey, jams, jellies, and I get to reuse the jars.We have an Amish store outside of town a ways..been there a couple of times with my father to buy cheese..and they have an unbelievable selection comparedto Walmarts..think its about time to hit that store again
