Yes, growing bean sprout is easy with a small bucket and a small straw mat. For east coast sailing, the passage of 10 to 15 days is not bad. But for the west coast sailors, their voyage is 30 days of more. It is nice have some greens besides from the can.

The romance and the reality tend to be the only thing that crunches!

After weeks at sea we had oour first fresh meal of sprouts.... about half a bite each!

Below is a photo of our Mushroom Farm - you can buy a box of mushroom spores in compost and they hatch and out pop mushrooms... Well thats the idea!
After a few weeks of diligent farming the photo shows our entire harvest and me dividing the spoils between Nicolle and me for dinner...

Well, it is a beautiful mushroom. I guess if you can't enjoy quantity, you can at least appreciate the quality!!!

Re: The definition of I can cook

Quinoa: Looks and tastes a lot like millet, canary seed. It was "rediscovered" as being a fairly nutritious alternative to rice and corn for folks who can't tolerate gluten. Personally, I find it has no flavor appeal, it works best if boiled in broth and seasoning, not plain. Sort of like a small bland buckwheat or kasha.

Dave, if you're cooking gluten-free you'll have to learn how to bake with the non-toxic grains which often are found in the "ethnic foods" shelves. Rice flour, potato flour/starch, tapioca flour, bean flour...and then there's the trick of baking it. GF breads are becoming commonly stocked in supermarkets, but even in Whole Foods it is a lottery to find out what is on the shelf, and how long it has been there.

The really old classic cookbooks like Joy of Cooking and The New Settlement Cookbook can usually still be found used or online, and they date back to a different time so they're actually quite handy on a boat. Like, no mayonaise? No problem, you've got an egg and some oil, right?

Anybody gives you grief over using a recipe, you just stick it in their sandwich. (G)

I like to serve my quinoa with small diced reconstituted dry fruit like apricots or figs and toasted almond slivers or pignolia nuts

Re: The definition of I can cook

I can still cook, bit I'm really gettin lazy about being creative. Last night I sauteed fresh-caught mangrove snapper fillets in butter flavored Pam, sprinkled on a little old bay, cooked some Italian flavored stewed tomatoes and had some left over potato salad. Washed it all down with a Green Coconut Margaretta. Desert was a couple Mint Oreo cookies - love them little rascals.

Cheers,

Gary

Re: The definition of I can cook

Nothing wrong with using recipes for cooking, but to cook successfully, one should understand recipes are guidelines, used with good judgement which comes with experience that may include some training. My suggestion to take some cooking classes was primarily made so one could get some professional feedback. Then you should understand where your skills are. Many people are good cooks, many think they are but in reality they are not...I see it everyday as a chef instructor.

Re: The definition of I can cook

Gary, there's lazy and there's lazy. I guess butter-flavored Pam has a use on a boat if you can't preserve butter (G) the list of ingredients varies from can to can, depending on the flavors inside. Ain't so hard to just use the butter and olive oil, is it?

Or course if you use one of the green ceramic skillets, they really ARE remarkable. No butter, no oil needed, except for flavor. Well, that's not quite true, they tell you to oil & season them twice a year, cast iron style.
