Coating eggs with mineral oil is less messy than Vaseline. Mineral oil is edible and won't go rancid like Corn or Olive oils.

They sell a plastic egg carrier in sporting goods/camping stores, it allows you to turn the eggs over every few days and they won't spoil as fast. If eggs are left sitting on 1 end, they spoil faster, so that carrier makes it easier to turn them.

As far as canning goes, get "Ball's blue book", it tells you the correct procedures to follow (like newhaul said, it's very important). Most fruits and veggies can be simply water bath processed. Meats and seafood's MUST be pressure canned for the proper times or you can kill someone w/ Botulism.

I've done many relish's and Jams over the yrs. w/ the water bath method, but not the pressure method. So, I just got a Presto 4 qt. Stainless steel pressure cooker to try and do some meats etc.. (WalMart has it online only, w/ "ship it to store" free shipping)

Coating eggs is really just to seal them since the shells are porous. From what I've read, it's best to seal them pretty-much straight after laying. I don't know how you do that these days, but I'm guessing that the stock in most supermarkets hasn't taken too long to get there from the farm.

You could always pack lean beef-steak/pork/lamb in salt like they used to in the "good old days" - rinse off in salt water to rehydrate before frying.

The key to keeping mayo without refrigeration is to always use clean utensils with it... that helps reduce the chance of contaminating the mayo with bacteria or mold. It is generally acidic enough to not require refrigeration to stay unspoiled, if it is not contaminated with bacteria or mold.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Stick with the sardines. Here's my shipmate, age 94, who eats a can a day. And a bit of dark chocolate for dessert.

We use mayo that comes in a squeeze bottle, works great. Just do not touch the top of the bottle to anything, and we have kept it aboard all summer with no issues.

Ask around and find a local small farm that sells them. We have them all over here in the PNW, all though few advertise as they are typically just small part time operations.

Getting them before they are refrigerated is important to, for maximum life, and preferably not washed (not sure if that was mentioned yet).

Tinned sardines...indeed tinned fish in general....one of the few tinned foods I really enjoy eating. More in salads and on sandwiches than for a main course but not bad.

Mind you when available give me fresh sardines, grilled, mmmmmmmmmm yummy.

Hey..I was going to say I hope I look that good at 94....then the Wombet reminded me that I didn't look that good at 54.....ouch !!

Another good option.

I have only been to the US once to fetch my boat but I have to say this surprises me. In all of San Diego, we were unable to find eggs in the stores that were not refrigerated. We eventually found a local resident who took us to a small local producer who sold us unrefrigerated eggs.

It doesn't take much Vaseline. We take a small amount, rub it into our palms then rub the eggs, there is never any mess or residual Vaseline on the shells, just a shiny shell. And with turning every week, we have kept eggs in the tropics for 6 weeks or more.
