Re: Basic Staples ???

For main dishes that can be stored I like canned tuna, salmon, chicken, chili and crab meat. With these I can make tuna sandwiches, salmon patties, chicken salad or chicken ala king, chili dogs or nachos, and crab cakes or stuffing for fresh caught fish.
I also like rice, risotto and dried noodles for side dishes. Then canned veggies and fruit.
If I have those aboard I can just add some fresh veggies, mushrooms, salad greens and fruit like grapes, melons and apples. I buy meat fresh when I can and sometimes freeze it before bringing it to the boat.

Re: Basic Staples ???

So I added a presto 5qt pressure cooker and test sailed it last weekend, I'LL tell you what... I think I made one of the best pot roasts ever with some carrots, onions, potatoes followed the directions and made a meal that was just awesome ( So a BIG THANKS to the recommendation for one).
Also added a spice rack made from wood and installed it along side my bulkhead shelf.
The plumbed in a propane line to the stove that took those little bottles and put a 10lb in the stbd hatch for storage and it sits on the seat at the moment when in use.
A more permanent solution will be done over the winter to store outside along the push pit.
assorted canned fish has been added and a rubber made filled with crackers to hold crumbs and protect from crushing also.
I also have nasi goreng spice added for rice and pasta dishes which is great and got some fish fry tossed into the mix as well.
This has become the best season for variety and tastyness of meals cooked onboard.
The other day I was making eggs benne's on the hook and ended up making a few more for the boats that were in sniffing distance as they began to spy my meals in the cockpit and offered up supplies to be added for a potluck.
An awesome season so far, thanks to all for input and keep the ideas coming.

Re: Basic Staples ???

We've been playing with the pressure cooker a lot recently (we're on the hard, and just a tad, shall we say, restless?) Anyway, found this fascinating site: hip pressure cooking - pressure cooker recipes & tips!

There's even a recipe for pasta in the pressure cooker: Farfalle all'Arrabbiata - Angry (spicy) Butterflies
- the secret to al dente pressure cooked pasta! | hip pressure cooking - pressure cooker recipes & tips!
which just blows my mind. Between the large amount of fresh water needed, the fuel to heat said water, and the steam, we just didn't make pasta aboard until we found this.

Re: Basic Staples ???

That's it. I'm buying a pressure cooker. Maybe I'll finally be hip.

Re: Basic Staples ???

I can vouch for the pasta recipe, we've done it three times since we found it. Used Barilla pasta and the cheapest generic tomato sauce once, and it STILL came out delicious. The next time, we used fresh tomatoes from the farmer's market and the results were, well, amazing. Next, I want to try her bread recipe, and the pressure cooker learning series on that site.

But a pressure cooker is not what you need to be "hip" -- ALL women who sail are hip! (And BTW, like the new avatar!)

Re: Basic Staples ???

Lately I've been using my pressure cooker, almost exclusively. Mine's electric (at home use) and it's a rice maker, browner and 2-speed slow cooker, and warmer. Very quiet.

Need to get another stove-top Presto for the boat. Gave my Presto to a live-aboard when I got the electric (Fagor brand). Gotta try making bread in it.

Edit: Just added a 4-qt Presto to my wish list. It'll be perfect for the boat.

I make awesome stews, soups and bean dishes in the pressure cooker.

Fresh herbs here include: Thai basil, lemongrass, coriander, curry leaves, chilis, ginger, spring onion, fenugreek, star anise, cinnamon,cloves.....etc.

Try a lamb curry in your pressure cooker, ummmmmmmmmmmmm good!

Re: Basic Staples ???

Cant go wrong with pressure cooker. Grandma cooked 4 decades with this technology. Absolutely infuses flavors for a taste like you've been cooking all day.


edit: no more posting from iPhone, until I get used to the little keyboard.
