Real food does not come in cans.

But for emergency usage I do keep a supply of black olives, Chow Mein vegetables, Water Chestnuts and Salmon on hand. that I do sample almost daily.

Like you, we eat very few canned foods. We do keep canned soups, both for spoiled brats lunch once in awhile and to use as sauces. I also keep tuna, salmon, and a few canned veggies like corn, maybe beans and beets. I guess, if I had to pick a favorite it would be canned beets.

oh, I forgot about olives, but we usually only have them at holiday time or maybe in a salad. I do keep tomato sauce and canned tomatoes, in case I run out of the home canned ones before the next canning season. I use canned beans only for bean salad about once of twice a year.

I recently read an article urging people to eat more vegetables and stating to buy them either fresh, frozen, or canned.

The article stated it was a myth that frozen vegetables and canned vegetables were not good sources of needed nutrients.

A MYTH, that is perpetuated by internet posters.

Whenever I make my homemade spinach & artichoke dip, I ONLY use quartered artichokes (in water, no oil) in a can. My favorite brand: Reese! Yum. So flavorful.

Before the logistics advances in the past thirty years, most people canned their own foods to last through the winter months. Otherwise, they had to deal with the very limited selections in the produce department of the supermarkets and corner markets.

That only applies to people that do not do home canning and live in areas in which there is no supply of local farm fresh goodies.

While canned and frozen have the same nutritional value. Real food is when you can harvest it yourself or know the guy who did.

We do keep a minimum of 6 months worth of canned goods on hand, because of our long harsh winter. but definitely look foreward to the the ripening gardens when we can get stuff we pick our self. For some reason there seems to be more satisfaction in a zucchini I raised myself than one pre-sliced in a frozen package or canned.

Okay, I confess (I'm whispering), I like Spam, sardines too, but only King Oscar sardines in tomato sauce, for some reason they don't taste the same in olive oil. I like Bush's original baked beans and Chef Boyardee's ravioli.
