greyhat: Don't forget to keep all those empty bottles and cans for those that live near recycling centers. 10 cents a piece adds up, so does a few cans of beans here and there!

Anyone found any decent cheese for mid to long term storage or do you just dehydrate/can your own? Own your own goat/cow/camel...?
Found a place to buy cheese power from and another recent Australian seller of freeze dried cheese cubes but so far as I am aware not much on the Australian market and the Kraft (or whatever it is called now) cheese tins are not for sale in Australia.
Watched a few videos on creating cheese from powdered milk but would rather try for alternative and leave that for a plan B.
Depending on what you want to spend; there are cheeses that are improve with age like some wines do. You'd have to own a cellar to keep them properly though. They'd basically be investment grade cheese ... buy them young from artisan makers and increase their value by careful aging upto 10 years. Then eat them if they aren't needed for other reasons. It's a win-win if you have the coin to do it.

I think Bega also has a canned cheese. Kraft cheese I think is now called Dairylea. I still see the square boxes of plastic foil wrapped cheese, the mini wheel of triangles & the cheese slices/singles but no tins/cans available in Australia.
Had a quick search for the red feather butter, will have to keep an eye out for that but don't recall seeing it in local IGA.
