GRAIN & BEANS COOKING WITHOUT ELECTRICITY

 

THERMOS COOKING

  • Wide mouth, *insulated, stainless steel thermos

  • Funnel

  • Long handled brush to clean

 

* Make sure the thermos is well insulated, as that keeps the temperature hotter longer and keeps the food from spoiling.

 

ABOUT ADDING SALT

It takes longer for the water to boil with salt, because water boils at a hotter temperature with salt.  It takes longer for the beans and grains to cook with salt, because the salt interacts with the starchy coating.  If a bean is soaked first, salt does not interfere with cooking time.

 

DRIED VEGIES FOR FLAVOR

  • 1 T dried onion = 1 onion

  • ¼ ts of celery seed to 2 T water = 1 stalk of celery

  • 1 part dried carrot to 2 parts water

  • ½ cup dried cubed potatoes to 1.5 cups water

 

  • Laying the thermos on its side allows the food to soak the water evenly.

 

  • Can use a hobo stove to boil water.  They are fueled by pinecones, sticks, dried dung, leaves, etc.
