Interesting. Too bad the people are so enamored of YourTube. Not convenient

Blending broccoli for soup before it is cooked seems inconvenient with my stick blender. I do like the idea of adding mustard powder or wasabi at the end of cooking. Wasabi-broccoli soup ... MMMmmmm. We carry wasabi in tubes already.

We eat a lot of raw veg anyway, and there are broccoli sprouts growing as we speak for sandwiches and salads. *grin*

One source I read discussed how those stranded with emergency rations were more likely to succumb to scurvy than those who for lack of provisions resorted to eating things like pine needles - which you won't find at sea.

Another source discussed the number of people who, due to bad diet, live on the brink of scurvy.

However with sprouting trays and a supply of seed scurvy is no danger at all.

Re: Search for One Can Meal, Part Deux

canning your own is certainly the way for the perfect one can meal....
but the best one I've found off the shelf is garbanzos....
just add herbs and olive oil/ vinegar to taste...
balsamic, malt, red wine...add whateve
can heat or eat cold.
but yes..... have a canning session as part of provisioning.

Canned Couscous, canned cod livers, and dried prunes or figs. You could literally live on that combo. Just make sure your toilet flushes properly before you do.
