Default bug in food

I started this thread once but I can't find it so I'm assuming my phone is junk. I'll try again. I work at a plant that makes peanut butter and I can get it free. How good is peanut butter at keeping someone alive. I can get several large jars a week, so s he nutritional value decent?

peanut butter has lots of vitamins, and minerals in it, and seems to last forever. In a crisis, you could always barter it for something else. I'd stock up on it for sure if you get it free.

Concentrated source of energy (fats) as well as proteins. Shelf life about a year beyond that "best used by" date. Eating nothing but PB will play hell with your potty habits.

Also look for recipes that use PB as an ingredient.

Default Food Value.................

A lot of the charitys today are sending mass amounts of peanut butter to third world countries. It seems to work faster on starving children at puting on weight. If you can't stomach rancid peanut butter you can allways use it for bait...............

You can significantly extend the actual shelf life by storing it in a very dark, cool, dry place (like a root cellar). If you are getting fresh and newly produced PB (rather than stuff that expired so they can't sell it) I would take as much as they would allow. Keep storing it up as you get it and then as the exp. dates come up you can sell it at the flea market, thereby rotating the stock and turning it into cash (or trading it for something else you need).

I had a significant number of long expired MREs that I sold for $5- $10 each with the buyer fully aware of the exp. date.

PB will last a very long time if properly stored. years even.
it has so much calories and protein I have already made it part of my preps.

I haven't verified this, but I was told to store peanut butter upside down to give it even a longer shelf life. Can anyone confirm this for me?
