Re: What Food to Buy Without Refrigeration?

Probably already mentioned somewhere…..

You can "can" your own meats. A little time on the net. A few videos and a pressure cooker ……. and you are on your way.

Works great.

Ah yes...the thread hyjacking....welcome to the world of Internet Chat rooms where you give birth to a topic and toss it out for the world to tourture. I didn't post on the thread orginally because I think it's crazy to go cruising without refrigeration in the fist place. And having personally brought down two Engle refrigerators to cruisers in Mexico that bailed on the idea of cruising without refrigeration I'm a little jaded...plus I like cold water to drink.

There...thread now hyjacked to "can you cruiser without refrigeration"

Sure you can...but we wouldn't have lasted 4 yrs in Mexico without it, just too much like camping.

Re: What Food to Buy Without Refrigeration?

Thought nthe whole point of the existence of Engels was so you could take refrigerators "camping", as their principle use is in 4WDs and RVs.....

So why should boat owners be any different. Go camping. Take the fridge.

Without even thinking hard I can think of 8-10 cruisers we sailed with in Mexico that used the Engle as their deep freezer. They would load it when in good cheap provisioning ports and then turn it off once their stash of ice cream, steaks and chicken was gone. For someone without refrigeration..the price and ease of an Engle is damn hard to beat.

Re: What Food to Buy Without Refrigeration?

We are looking at the Engle for our boat as we have a tiny ice chest only. I think that having at least some non canned/dried products for the special occasions is worth it. We are meant to be having fun no? They seem to last the best and if opened rarely I expect we can get 10 days out of it. Other than that careful storage and lots of reading of some really super blogs! The boat galley is a great one to get you started.

Re: What Food to Buy Without Refrigeration?

I don't at this point know all that has been said in this thread. Obviously many packaged survival type products available. Now the question is do you have a microwave? Or other means of heating foods? If so there are now many excellent choices in the grocery store. We keep a lot of Hormel Compleat (Yes that is how they spell it) in our pantry and cupboards. They don't require refrigeration. Some excellent full meals although small meals.
