    I had to share this. I see folks here ask how long canned foods will last. In the case of this lard, an amazing 64 years. LOL! Don't try this with most foods or you'll probably die, certainly acidic foods they say can get botulism. A reminder of our fathers generosity in that they fed the survivors of our worst enemy after some of the worst bubblegum nastiest most devastating fighting anyone has ever seen ever.

    That’s not the right question. How long can canned food last when stored and canned right.
    If you store it in a cool dry dark place it will last as long as you will.

    I can't get past the idea the guy ate LARD on bread like it was butter or something. LARD thats like not as refined as Crisco right. Oh wait Oreos are Crisco and Sugar. Never mind.

    Crisco is all vegetable oil Hydrogenation to make it solid. Very handy stuff if you want to make a pie at fishing camp take some Butter Flavored Crisco. No Refrigeration easy to measure.
