Re: What is your boat bread recipe.

For a boat without an oven or during the summer when you don't want to heat up the cabin, it seems to me the best bread would be a flat bread that can be cooked on a grill with a baking stone. All of the Indian and Middle Eastern breads along with English Muffins are candidates. Really good crusty European style bread really needs an oven in which you can control the moisture, and a long rising period to develop the flavors. Whether using a natural leaven (sourdough) or commercial yeast, breads that take five to six hours to rise and bake at very high temperatures are not well duplicated in a pressure cooker. So try some flat breads for a change, one big hunk of humanity exists on flat breads.
