Bread that lasts two months! Yikes! Might as well stock up on Twinkies, they last forever.
We make bread every couple of days, whole grain wheat and a small grinder, no bread machine.

I'm still amazed how long it keeps, I have no good rexplanation for it. I buy a loaf, put it in the icebox (no ice), and it lasts. I just threw away a loaf the molded in the last ten days, but it's been aboard for four months. This time of year the bread has effectively refidgerated or frozen much of the time. But I first noticed this effect when I returned from my delivery trip in May '09. I was still using bread from that trip in the summer. I put a fresh loaf aboard yesterday, marked it with the purchase date. Generally I just judge by the expiration date. As I posted previously, this is mostly all natural wheat bread.

Maybe It's the double wrap packaging on the Hearty breads? I love the "Oat Nut" or "12 grain" and I also find they last a lot longer than any regular white breads.

The Potato bread doesn't last long...

I found my short list whenever I get near a port is bread, drinking water, some fresh vegetables and meat. I find myself craving salads and fresh fruits after weeks of canned and cured products. Am putting in a fridge so things may change a little - it will be nice to add dairy back to the diet.

Yep, we're going to install a conversion kit for the same reasons. We're getting ready for an extended voyage and have found that we can use refrigeration to keep-fresh those things that are perishable.

If we pull into port and are able to buy fresh vegetables and fruits, we will need to freeze them so they will keep. If we catch a large fish here and there, we will need to be able to freeze the leftovers so they will last.

Refrigeration is renewable, in that if you have solar panels and/or wind generators, you can renew your batteries and perpetuate your power supply.

Just back from a 3 day trip. Favorite provision item; screw top box soup, a great snack at the tiller.

Air temp was 90 deg F no need to heat the soup , but maybe just set the box in a pot of hot water, like KTL's boiled cans.

I have not been able to find UHT milk in my area, but Costco has cases of soymilk packaged the same way. It's tolerable and you can stack those brick-shaped things anywhere. Long-lasting bread: sourdough.

We had some success growing lettuce but you have to be careful since some countries don't allow you to import plants or soil. How strict they are varies from wink-wink to tally serious about the prohibition. Seems to be more of a problem in the South Pacific than it was in Eastern Caribbean.

Heading back to Lake Ontario for this summer. Ainia is back in North America for the first time since 2010. Currently in Long Island Sound.
