Keystone canned meats

Has anyone cruised with Keystone canned meats aboard?
Some people have said they last for 15 years. But so far the cans I ordered off Amazon will be out of date in just three years. I know there is a bunch of scamming going on with dehydrated meats. But Keystone canned Hamburger makes great chilly. I just don't want to buy a case then have to toss some of it later.

Keystone canned meats

Been trying https://brinkmanfarms.com. Tastes good, and for someone who uses very little salt, I find thy need salt!

Not sure about shelf life.

Question- are the Keystone pork chunks - chunks or more like a pulled pork?

Thanks

PS check sailing anarchy. Started a thread there on a canned meat and got good info

Re: Keystone canned meats

Could be an Amazon scam. There are a lot of them. Many, many products on there are not what they seem. This seller may have got 10 year old cans of keystone and are selling them at full price.

Some people go shop at Walmart or trader Joe's and then sell the things for a markup on Amazon.

This is what's known as having an Amazon "business" these days.

I just was Emailed that five years is the Keystone shelf life. That means the people selling on Amazon sell two year old or more cans of meat. The fifthteen year shelf life is some Prepper retailer selling a product that looks like the Keystone lable, but it's not.

I am going to order a case of Keystone hambuger from the factory. See if I can get some cans out the factory.

Re: Keystone canned meats

I would point out that SPAM is sold with a "use by" date that is three years out. Of course, we all know that it can be kept far, FAR longer than that, and still be good to eat. Like, you hear stories of people opening cans that are 40 years old, and saying that they taste just as good as the new stuff.


So, it may be that Keystone puts a five year date on their stuff, but the reality could be that it is good for much, much longer than that.


In fact, there are a lot "prepper" foods out there that will last virtually forever, but the law requires them to put a "use by" date on it and so they do.

I don't think I've ever heard "be good to eat" and "Spam" used in the same sentence before...

Re: Keystone canned meats

The other alternative is to preserve your own meat by "canning." Where canning can be cans or glass jars. It is not rocket science, one just needs a decent pressure cooker. Some inexpensive jar grabbers and such make it a bit easier.



In the US, county extension offices hold classes on food preservation but I just bought a pressure cooker, read it's manual as well as a publication put out by a university. It really is not hard.


Later,
Dan
