Amen brother. That's a philosophy I can get behind.

Re: Best Boat Snack

RobGallagher beat me to it, but +1 on doing the corn in the husk. That is one of the only things I miss about living in Jersey, the fresh corn, they don't know how to grow it right over here in Pennsy. I have never soaked it in sea water, when I am in a rush I don't even soak it, though I prefer to, but it still comes out great!

Re: Best Boat Snack

The cream cheese with hot pepper jelly is great (and mentioned above).

A good variation is to spread goat cheese on a good cracker and put a dollop of hot pepper jelly on top. Lay them out on a platter and they disappear. Sweet, spicy and savory. Slug it down with your fav drink. Sugar, fat, salt and alcohol are the four basic food groups aboard our vessel !!

For cheater deviled eggs..... hard boil and cut lengthwise, leave the yolk in, apply a small dollop of sour cream and another of salsa on top of the exposed yolk. Hit them with a little cayenne or tabasco if you dig it.

Re: Best Boat Snack

Ummm.... am I the only one who rarely eats cream cheese??? Actually our go-to snack is usually cheese and crackers (we like triscuits) but we usually try and source interesting cheeses. You know, the kind where the mold is supposed to be there.

I'll take a stab at a cream cheese recipe though since they seem popular.

Take a brick of cream cheese and put it on a plate. In a separate bowl melt another brick of cream cheese and stir in the contents of 20 Lipitor capsules. Pour melted cream cheese/Lipitor mix over brick of cream cheese. Sprinkle a handful of low-dose Bayer asprin over the top for crunch. Serve on top of doughnuts.

Re: Best Boat Snack

For us we eat this stuff by the gallon, recipe from back home in Texas with a bazillion variants. I have added corn, kidney beans and all sorts of stuff to change this around. My favorite change is to roast the peppers and or tomatoes with a small torch. But this is the basic recipe.

10 Roma Tomatoes (or similar)
1/4 Red Onion
1/4 White Onlon
1/4 cup cilantro
2 cloves garlic
5 or more Serrano peppers or other hot peppers depending on your constitution. I have been doing habeneros lately as well.

Grind all this to your desired consistancy. A blender or food processor makes it easy.

Stir in juice from 1 lime, 1/2 cup chopped green onions (or chives) and one tablespoon of olive oil. Add salt, pepper and cumin to taste.

Also, up here in AK I have a great supply of Copper River Red Salmon and we smoke tons of it. Great with many cheeses and on crackers and keeps really well.

Re: Best Boat Snack

Wow, I am getting hungry!
To tell you the truth, when I read the title of this post I was thinking a good snack for, say, the Maltese Falcon would be a West Wight Potter

Re: Best Boat Snack

All the food ideas here sound very tasty for sure, any thoughts on the risker "soft" foods aboard regarding food safety aboard?

The reason I ask is I know more than a couple of cruisers who maintain less than land standards on their overall galley cleanliness - stuff like washing only the tops of plates (gotta save that water after all), reusing cups and utensils after washes in cold bay/sea water finished with a quick cold fresh water rinse, etc.. Also wondering about the soft cheeses, deviled eggs, wet white preps involving mayo and and the like regarding boat refrigeration and the naturally humid environment of boats... ?

One of our favorite snacks aboard was (any) hard cheese that wasn't finicky on temps, pepperoni that could handle a room temp, and good crackers and mustard. Also loved canned boiled peanuts to go with, as well as a good trail mix.
