Re: provisioning for a 400 mile passage..

When I go out on a boat I follow the "remember the Minnow" plan, a short trip may turn into a very much longer one LOL. I have never had to tap into the reserves due to an emergency, but I have had shorter trips turn into much longer because I did not want to return....

The next time I leave I am sort of planning just to stay indefinitely, or at least as long as the money lasts....

One method ( not exact) to test if an egg is spoiled before cracking is to put it in water and seeif it floats. If it does. toss it.
A very light coating of a vegetable cooking oil does it perfectly and the eggs can be hung in a basket in the cabin. They will last about two to three months like that, and should not be going bad even then, they just get a little stale.

There's also Bannock Bread (probably goes by some other names as well). It's an old back-country mix people make up before heading out. The kind of stuff you just add water to make the dough then cook it up. You can bake it, pan fry it (one of my faves), or even wrap it around a stick and put it over a flame (on your grill, stove, or blowtorch). If you add cinnamon last minute it's great for breakfast or with apples (wrap around apples for a baked tart). It's definitely hearty. It's a good base to play with for different recipes. I'm sure chef2sail would have some great input/ideas.

Here's the recipe:

1 cup flour (white or a mixture of white and whole wheat)
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 cup dry milk powder
1 tbsp. shortening (I just use vegetable oil)

I mix it up and keep it dry in sandwich-sized zip loc bags and use as needed.

wrapped around a stick. hahaha straight out of the boyscout handbook. funny the things you rememebr.

....forgot to mention... I usually put a dash of sugar in as well... brown sugar is really good with the apples!

A note on eggs: If you turn them every day they will last quite a while without refrigeration. Turn the whole carton, not each individual egg as one of my crew once that she was supposed to do. Fresh eggs that have never been refrigerated are rumoured to last longer.

Take pipas, the green young coconuts. They are good with the tops sliced off and drunk straight from the hull. A straw helps! They keep with out a fridge and are naturally cool.

I would take eggs stowed low in the cooler part of the bilge. Just open them one at a time in a separate container from what your are cooking in. You will know if there is a bad one. Excellent protein and opens the baked goods repertoire! Egg salad sandwiches with a little minced black olive is good.

Cabbage and pineapple make good slaw with mayo.

I bet you have a BBQ. Make your own dough and take cheese and cherry tomatoes. They keep well and make a great little pizza. Then it's fresh ; -)

Have a good sail and turkey day!
