long term storage of cake mixes
« on: February 02, 2012, 02:22:47 PM »
I pick these up on sale for our pantry but I rarely get around to using them by the expiration date.  What's the procedure - should I empty the contents into a mylar with 02 absorber or just put a small hole into cake mix pouch and then into mylar with absorber?

I simply remove the commercial cake mix inner bag from the box, collapse the box and cut off anything on the box not needed (I leave the front label to tell me what it is, and the ingredients and directions, losing everything else), and then vacuum seal the whole shebang in a Foodsaver bag and then store that in a mylar bag - or just in the bucket. I have muffin and cake mixes that seem to be just fine after 2 years.
