So, my parents recently divorced and my dad gave me a bunch of his food storage (they don't have any kids at home anymore). I have several containers of salt, some opened, some unopened. I am assuming this is good indefinitely. I also have several large buckets filled with white granulated sugar. Some of it was stored in the garage of his Las Vegas home. Looks perfectly fine. Also have some buckets of hard white wheat. Dated 1998 for all of this stuff. I am assuming it is all good. What do you think? Only thing that really worries me is that some of it was stored in the garage and the heat in Vegas can be rather extreme, although dry. Thoughts? I'm thinking I will keep it all, regardless. If nothing else, I could use the old wheat as barter... it will still fill a belly even if it has degraded nutrients.
