There is a way of having a lot of excellent food that does not need refrigeration but I guess you would have more problems finding it on the New World than in the Old World, and I am talking about the several delicious old ways of preserving food, I mean long before the refrigeration was invented. All old countries have their particular ways but mostly involve dried food, smoked food or food that retards the oxidation maintaining the oxygen out, mostly having the products inside olive oil or animal fat.
Portuguese used for centuries this kind of food in their boats and even today one of those products is probably the favorite Portuguese meal: Dried cod fish.
Were you have about a 1000 ways to prepare it:
Receitas de Bacalhau à Moda Tradicional Portuguesa
with a google translator I guess you will not have a problem.
Dried cod fish has to be put in fresh water before preparation at least a day (to lose the salt) and that water should be changed 3 times. That's the only inconvenient but the variety of different dishes it can provide is amazing.

|JanetGroene||This isn't a self-serving plug because my books are now out of print but I continue to write about, practice and develop recipes having to do with provisions. I post a Pantry Recipe of the Week on my Boat Cook blog and am happy to answer questions here. Most important tip: observe use-by dates. They vary greatly. Canned fish has a very long shelf life; tomato products less long.|

1 cup oil , any oil but use olive for the best flavor
Put all in bowl and beat with wisk.
This ain't figuring out the genetic make up of polisulfides or even trying to get the space shuttle into orbit. just grab an egg oil and wisk. add flavors you like. Poof ! MAYO

The beans need to be rehydrated overnight, but planning ahead is what sailing is all about. If you have the rice and beans as one meal it is a 'complete' protein (my wife is an herbivore ).
You can bring canned beans, of course, but it is more weight and space.
Yes, you'll need water to rehydrate the dried ones, pick your poison.
My grandmother never refrigerated mayo, never killed me.
I'll find and post the recipe for Rice and Beans; it is quick (once the beans are ready for cooking), cheap and tasty. Best with fresh onion and parsley but I guess dried would be ok.

I've learned the hard way, the perils of cardboard, water will get in the settees sooner or later. Plus I need a means of stowage that complements the odd shape of the settee lockers. I put the jars in naked for now, but will probably go with socks.
The filling in twinkies is one polymer bond away from plastic.

|newhaul||also as far as storing canning jars you can go to a moving company and get what is called a glass pack. for packing and moving glasses and jars. most mini storage places sell them as well.|
