Why can't you make pop corn on your stove. I tried my air popper pop corn seeds making it the old fashion way just a week ago and it worked great. A small amount of Canola Oil at the bottom of the pot, between a 1/16 of an inch to 1/8th of an inch of oil over the bottom. Heat a bit, add seeds, shake gently, and cholesterol enhancing butter, too much salt... eat.

My wife loves her new Force 10 oven. Cooks Roast dinners, bread, bakes muffins and does great curries. She reckons she is going to write a cruising cook book.

Please remind your wife that not all cruisers have (or choose to use) an oven, and that she should include some stove-top recipes (including one-pot) in her cruising cookbook.

I tried that 1st season with this boat and the result was not good. Could have been I had the wrong amount of oil and/or popcorn though.

I am surprised that Whirley-Pop will not ship to Canada. Haven’t those guys heard about NAFTA? Do you suppose that Homeland Security had determined that American technology this sophisticated should be kept out of the hands of rogue nations like Canada?

We have a 3 burner w/ oven propane fueled stove. We like to get prepared frozen foods from Trader Joe's which require some heating and perhaps mixing with rice and a nice tossed salad. We do pasta w/ on board prepared sauces... chops and potatoes.. soups and more or less whatever we eat at home. A favorite meal is to buy a huge steamed lobster and have it with corn and salad.

Bringing a bunch of frozen foods also keeps the frig colder.

I had a BBQ which got icky and I decided keeping it clean was too much a bother. Who knows... maybe a BBQ is in our future?

Damn - I looked at the survey five times - and not once did I find a choice titled: VERY very carefully.

COOKING ONBOARD `TSUNAMI' CAT

I haven't read many notes from Australia so I thought I would add my two AUcents worth.

My cat has twin gas burners, no oven and did have a microwave, which I stowed ashore due to its wieght and the fact it sucked the gut out of the batteries (through an 1800 watt inverter) when one tried to use it.

I do have a gas barbecue on the stern (as with most Aussie yachts) and this is used when mates and partners visit ... otherwise, due to its large size, I cook a couple of trays of chicken pieces at a time, refrigerate them and eat them cold whilst sailing.

Lori, you could always have Whirley-pop ship to a straw dog purchaser in the US who could just throw a new label on the box & hand it back to the postman.<G> The USPS will even let you buy postage and print labels online, so you'd be able to email the prepaid label to your straw dog purchase.

But Real Men know how to cook on the exhaust manifold of an engine. Wrap the popcorn neatly in multiple layers of heavy aluminum foil, sprayed lightly with corn oil on the inside, and allowing room for expansion. Light the diesel...and cook the popcorn while you're motoring.<G>

Don' need no steenkin galley!<VBG>
