Cooking under Pressure,Bread ????

I have researched the forums and have read some interesting information about pressure cookers. I have two questions, maybe three. What kind and what size pressure cooker do you prefer? I saw a few recommendations for the cookbook, Cooking under Pressure, can you recommend any others? Last and most importantly I'm looking for bread recipes that can be made in a pressure cooker. I've seen lots of bread pudding recipes but nothing for regular or whole-wheat bread. We do not have an oven so we have been making cornbread in a cast-iron pan. This works well but does not work for baking bread. Oh, I might have a fourth question. Has anyone tried a solar oven? The last time we cruised extensively we had considered one of these, but could not find anyone who had actually used one. Thanks for your help!

I like the Fagor brand of pressure cookers...as for size, it depends...if you're just sailing alone or as a couple, a four or six quart is probably all you'll need. If you have more people, an eight quart is probably the way to go.

To use a pressure cooker as a stove top oven, you need a trivet and a baking pan that fits inside the pressure cooker. You don't want the baking pan to sit on the bottom of the pressure cooker, and you don't want a trivet that will transmit the heat readily...so no metal trivets.

I have a few good cookbooks, but they're on the boat, so I can't say what they're called.

Solar ovens aren't all that feasible on a boat...the wind tends to rob them of their heat...so they don't really get up to temperature all that well.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Colman Camp oven

You might try a Colman Camp oven, they are completely collapsible, so are easy to store without taking up much room, open up to a useable size that will accept your every day pie, casserole dish, small cookie sheets etc. set it on one of your stove burners an watch the temp gage on the front. It also has an adjustable backing rack. I purchased mine at Wally world for around $30 I think.

Kennya-

Cool suggestion, and not one I've heard before.

Insta-Start Camp Oven

In the past we had taken a look at the folding stovetop ovens. It is something to think about. I look them up to re-familiarize myself with them. And found that Coleman makes a propane oven now, it's called a Insta-Start Camp Oven I think that it might be a possibility. But I'd still like to investigate the pressure cooker for canning and conch.

As far as recipes are concerned, with all the slow-cooker cookbooks around,( there must be hundreds), all the slow-cooker recipes are ideal in a pressure cooker. Just remember the safety tips in Cooking Under Pressure and experiment with the timing. As far as bread is concerned, Sailing Dog has aleady said it. I prefer the shortbreads, like cornbread, bisquits and rolls rather than the pan loaf breads.
