Ofer, you can make ceviche with any kind of acid. Lemons and limes provide citric acid, vinegar is acetic acid. A flavored (red wine, cider, champagne) vinegar will be more flavorful than the cheap white stuff.

Lowride, since "ketchup" is just tomatoes with mainly onion and garlic seasoning, I'd guess that is one of the many "Barbeque" flavors we have in the US. But maybe "barbeque" as a concept does't sell as well in the Great White North?

No poutine flavor chips with fatty gravy and mayonaisse flavoring? <vbg>

One of my essentials is white vinegar. I carry lots of it. Some I use for cooking or salads, some to clean the head.

For Ceviche I use lemon juice, though.

"Bar-b-q" flavour chips are one of the more popular sellers up here; there are plenty of variations too - spicy bar-b-q, smoky bar-b-q; asian bar-b-q; even "Barbecued baby back ribs" flavour. IMO ketchup-flavour chips taste nothing like ketchup and are an acquired taste.

mmmmmm ketchup chips, fyi tastes nothing like ketchup its its own flavor. Also Id stock up on Clamato juice (clam-tomato) sounds gross I know, but you use it to make ceasers, a ceaser is a bloodymary but actually tastes good. widely popular in canada, fairly unknown in the us. it is possible to buy clamato in the super markets down there, but you might have to go searching.

I think it is Mott's (brand) Clamato juice in the States, and the stuff is in every supermarket, at least in the Northeast.

We save the clam juice for chowdah or white sauce, and tend to use real tomato sauce rather than just the juice with the clams. I guess the French went to Canada and the Italians settled just south of it, huh? <G>

The thought of Clamato doesn't gross me out, but it brings to mind "Gee...is that all that's left on the shelf?" You keep on enjoying those, and pass the single malts down this way. That'll work.

Ginger is a nice spice and fresh ginger tea is good for a queasy stomach. Fresh ginger will keep nicely (won't dry out) in a jar of potable alcohol. I've used white wine and vodka. The vodka tasted fine, too. If you're taking ice for the beginning of the trip, Heineken beer cans are strong enough to freeze, with the added benefit that you'll have to figure out.

BBQ as a concept sells anywhere in the world..get on a good bbq forum and see....it's just that we of the southern US have elevated it to a much higher art form than the rest of the pogues in the world.

Well, I've just finished reading this thread. Had to stop and eat occasionally. And sleep. Very informative. My favorite post was the "powdered milf" that all but me left alone. But think of the convenience for the solo sailor! I had to Google some things. UTH, for example. I cut and pasted many recipies, copied a couple of lists. My own cooking is quite limited but this thread was very helpful. Thank you.

If you want sauerkraut I highly recommend finding the German kind. The American sauerkraut is awful.

Why are you rinsing pasta?

Yum. I am not from the south but I love grits. Shrimp and cheese grits. Grits with scrambled eggs. Yum. Unfortunately, my husband does not like them.

If I recall, the former Kaiser Wilhelm II once commented, 'Gummie Bears are the only good thing to have come out of the Weimar Republic.'

Here's a bit of a twist. Fishing lures for trailing the boat under sail. Which lures work best on the open ocean for tilapia, tuna, Flounder etc...

Tilapia - any fresh water lure that works for a similar sized FRESH water fish.... you won't find any of them in an ocean.

Flounder - as this is a ground fish, your not going to be catching any trolling behind a boat.

Not trying to be rude, but you really need to understand your prey and the environment it thrives in.
