Desperate for sloppy joes but knowing I can't use canned anything, I threw this together for my husband who has, literally, no sense of taste and no sense of smell. His life revolves around mouthfeel and memory rather than smell and taste.
Well, I am quite the opposite - I can taste everything because I have lupus and sarcoidosis. It MUST taste similar.
CANNED foods are downright bad for your health. BPA (and OTHER BPs that aren't even regulated) are STILL TO THIS DAY lining cans.
The TANG you taste in everything canned is the liner. Not one of these ingredients came from a CAN.
Petroleum is the main constituent of 99% of all canned goods.
I eat it al la naturale it plain, it has most if not all of the taste that the canned does without the petroleum liner (!) - Only Eden Foods and a few local intrepid canners aren't lining cans with petroleum - ask them. Soda to chili, tomato sauce to tuna - get away from CANS! DEMAND GLASS or better!
