I'm skeptical of using part salt water. Particularly beans -- the salt slows the beans ability to absorb water and makes them tougher and take longer to cook. (That's why you don't salt them until ready to eat). So, save water but use more fuel? I'd just use pressure cooker. Besides, where we're sailing now, WAAAAY too polluted to use the water for anything like cooking or washing!
Like PB, we use a lot of ramen too, with antiseptic - boxed tofu (needs no refrigeration) for protein. Oh yeah, and a squeeze of lime for scurvy ;-)
