Canning Breads and Cakes: NOT!

Recently I went to a food storage class offered by a “pro” at our local grocery store. One of the things that she was teaching was that you could “can” sweet breads or cakes and use them in your food storage. Hmmm. Sounds good, right? WRONG. I went to the food experts at USU extension (my favorite resource), and this is what they said:

Food Safety Bulletin No 008 (2007)

Scary! I like the dry mix alternative! A lot of crazy ideas are floating around that simply aren’t safe: Canning butter, waxing cheese, storing eggs smothered with mineral oil, etc. Lets remember, we are trying to prepare for disasters, not make them.
