Re: Sea Water Cooking

Cast iron rust.. yeah! You think your stainless got rusty - you haven't seen anything until you bring cast iron aboard.

Ok. That's what I thought. I'll pass on the cast iron. Plus it is just plain HEAVY.

Re: Sea Water Cooking

Salt water is evil...
My happiest day was getting rid of the salt water galley foot pump and all my galleyware has thanked me for it...no rusting galleywear or cast iron pans aboard THIRD DAY.

Re: Sea Water Cooking

We never use salt water to wash anything but the deck and then only if we have to! Here in the Med it dries very quickly and leaves salt crystals everywhere - yuck!

However , I'm assuming the salt content is what makes the sardines and mullets so tasty over there .

Re: Sea Water Cooking

we usually wash dishes/pots/utensils in fresh water. but if they get especially dirty or lots of 'stuff' left over on them, we'll give them a salt water wash in a bucket first, then do the fresh water. probably saves a bit of water...

Quite possibily. But I seriously recommend that people don't boil their pasta or potatoes in Med water!

I'm looking forward to reaching places where we can swim in less salty water - we won't float so effortlessly though!

The difference floating is huge! I was amazed when I dived into the Med for the first time.

I wash our dishes in salt water, but give them a fresh rinse (nice being able to wash with copious amount of salt water). I have a foot pump for salt water in the galley.

Fresh water has never been so short on board this boat that I have needed to cook with salt, but previously I always used sea water for boiling eggs.

NornaB, we are on our way to meet up with you on Thursday. Thunderstorms seen and heard in your direction. Hope we are snuggly anchored before they hit .

It sounds as you need to google seasoning a cast iron cook ware.

Well seasoned won't rust, nor stick.

Don't use soap.

Re: Sea Water Cooking

For pans all we use is cast iron and we have had no issues with rusting.. To answer the question above, God no we don't wash it in salt water, as a matter of fact we don't "wash" it at all. When we are done cooking we wipe the pan lightly, add coconut oil, smear that around and put it away. The pan doesn't rust, is very well seasoned, doesn't stick and I swear everything tastes better!

really don't have to worry about rust if you use titanium cookware . . .

I think there is even some evidence that a little bit of the iron ends up in your food (iron is a good thing) and if you cook with aluminum, a little bit of it ends up in your food (aluminum has been linked with Alzheimer's) The aluminum may be an urban myth, I'm not sure
