Oven Canning for Long Term Storage

Oven canning works great for prepping dried goods to stay fresh for years. Baking them in the oven kills any insects or eggs to prevent contamination. As the jars cool, the lids will seal, preventing moisture or bugs from getting in and ruining your food. I haven't kept any of my oven canned goods long enough to test this, but some sites report that oven canned dry goods will last for 20 to 30 years. Heck, that's a pretty good time frame for those prepping for TEOTWAWKI!
