Re: Basic Staples ???

onboard, we don't use commercial block ice or bags of ice cubes- we use rubbermaid wash bins that we fill with water and freeze. It keeps the ice melt contained, lasts longer than blocks, and zero cost. Others have recommended soda bottles filled with water and frozen, but I like the bins because they ft the ice block tray in our side loading ice box, and no worries about a round object rolling around.

Re: Basic Staples ???

I agree with you. But I've used dry ice in the icebox onboard when planning on being away for awhile.

Re: Basic Staples ???

I agree with you. But I've also used dry ice in the icebox when I'm going to spend more than a couple of days away from the dock.

Re: Basic Staples ???

Whole wheat flours, yeast, wheat gluten and a pressure cooker. Very decent bread can be made right on the stovetop in a pressure cooker.

We have a breadmaker aboard and the wife loves to use it. Always a great addition to have fresh bread. It's also really nice to have a pressure cooker. Lots of single-pan meals can be thrown together in them.

We also have a slow cooker that does not take all that much power when you keep it on low. I like to throw things in and let them cook for dinner. Always great to have a hot meal waiting for you after sailing for hours.

Re: Basic Staples ???

I have a bread maker at home that I've used so much it's about worn out. They really are great. Running one on the boat though w/ a couple of solar panels would be way above my watt/hr. maximum. Wish it would work because I'd take it with me on the boat in a second. It's a job doing mixing and kneading by hand. I was surprised at how well it works, baking it in the pressure cooker. It's just time consuming.

Re: Basic Staples ???

Agreed on the power needed. I just installed a wind generator to add to our solar so that we could run the additional toys.

Think I'll try the pressure cooker as an alternative.

Re: Basic Staples ???

I won't leave the dock without Boxed soy milk (esp. choc.) and cheerios. I make bread in a coffee can on the stove top. A 12 volt blender is abs. nec.

Re: Basic Staples ???

I am adding the bullet to the list as well and added artichoke heart for adding to pasta, some pate and assorted crackers, for more fresh, pita bread and hummus, and more dried legumes and fruit, looking into the soy boxed milk.
pressure cookers will get a look at as well, never used one.
