By Gaye Levy – Backdoor Survival
One of the very first things I learned to do when I started to prep was seal food in Mylar bags. As simple as this sounds, you would not believe the gyrations I went through to make this happen. Holy moly, I used plastic tubing, a FoodSaver vacuum sealer, a yardstick, a straw, and iron and ironing board.
Yes, it all worked but it was a bit tedious in that four hands were required to get the job done. I also have to tell you that there were a lot of laughs during the process as the pinto beans went flying everywhere!
