Taste a little different, but really good when you ain't been in port for several weeks and all fresh food is gone except the fish, the shrimp and anything else that happened by. Get a pressure canner.

Are you talking about canning with Mason Jars? I'm a country boy, and I'm use to canning that way, but I was thinking that on a boat you don't want glass (or at least some people don't). I'm new to sailing, that is why I'm asking. Also where/how do you store such?

Re: Cooking Without Refrigeration / Microwave

Mt2Salt, this is an older thread but it doesn't hurt to ask. We keep glass canning jars on our boat and have crossed both the gulf stream and the Atlantic and no breakage. We keep them in socks or neoprene cozies or an old piece of towel even, in a storage locker, upright. As long as there is no movement in the locker it works great. That goes for all lockers, no matter what you are stowing. We use towels, clean rags, and lots of rolls of toilet paper and paper towels if we have excess room. Hope that helps!
