Has anyone tried out those canned meats from Werlingandsons? (www.werlingandsons.com) I''m looking for something tasty and semi-healthy that will store well. They say these will stay for up to two years. Just curious if anyone knows about them or any other long-lasting foods that don''t need refrigeration and don''t taste like cardboard.

Thanks,
Shar

Do try them out BEFORE you eat them as many people are allergic to or soon develop allergies to the preservatives.
I really like canned bacon from Hungary.

Sharlyn,
I haven''t done any extended cruising so I can''t comment on your question. I do however race/deliver usually for 5 to 7 days at a time and wonder if you have any experience using a pressure cooker? If so, do you have a favorite cookbook?

Thanx, Eric

Just hearing about pressure cooking. Heard "Pressure Cooking for Everyone" by Rich Rodgers & Arlene Ward was pretty good so I''ll try it out. Any ideas on a good pressure cooker?

thanks,
Shar

One of my neighbors here in the marina said that he has a "ZEB" that is stainless steel and he has had it for some time and swears by it.

We want to get one too, but I can''t find a source. He brought his from CA...so he doesn''t know where to get one. I guess we''ll have to wait for the St. Pete boat show.

Shar,

That book is fantastic. I love it. The ingredients are in everyone''s locker and the recipes are delicious. I''m looking for other ideas, too. I use the Fagor "Splendid" 4 and 7 qt models. They''re great. What I like about them is that they are simple to use. They only have the high pressure setting in which 99% of recipes use and the pressure weight is firmly installed. You don''t have to search around in the drawer when you want to use it. I find the 4qt model perfect for a crew of 4, any more you''ll have to use the 7 qt pot. I''m going to also, buy the 2 1/2 qt. model to cook risotto and smaller dishes like vegatables.

You can buy them just about anywhere. I like Chefs catalog. You can find them on line at www.chefscatalog.com. They can also be found at any home store like, Bed, Bath and Beyond, The Home Place, Linings and Things and of course all of the fine department stores.

Are you planning an extended cruise? What are you sailing? I live vicariously through the magazines and the stories of those of you that venture off.

Good luck.

Eric
If you''re not sailing you''re wasting time.

Eric -
Thanks for all the info. I''m dreaming of an extended cruise. I too live vicariously through magazines. I don''t own a boat yet, just renting on the weekends. Hoping to buy something after Christmas. I sail with friends in Marina Del Rey on a Newport 30. Hoping to accomplish a two year plan to leave the shores behind and head for the Caribbean. I''m trying to gather as much information as possible now and try out different things on short-term trips.

Thanks again, everyone, for all the tips!

Shar

Shar,

I found articles on the galley, pressure cookers and such in Sailnet. I found it in Her sailnet. Kind of sexist isn''t it? This infor is good for guys and girls.
