    You do scare me how you heat tins without opening them or piercing the top!

    Roger Taylor in his Corribee like to sail in the high latitudes – not something I would care to do. Have a look at this -http://www.thesimplesailor.com/articles.html. You will see in these articles how he used carpet to insulate his cabin.

    Keep up the good work.


    P.S. Used the link to Amazon from your site to buy Christmas presents – sadly for you only about £42.

    The idea of a local butcher shop that does what you are able to partake of is not to be found anywhere I know. I know where there are some sorta kinda butcher shops but the meat is prepackaged mostly and heaven forbid if they actually made a “PIE” other than prepackaged fruit it a gumming pie shell.
    Also, next time poke a hole in the tin of potatoes (pre-cooking) before it blows up in your face. Photogenic as you sort-of are, you won’t be long living on the edge like that.
    Hope the weather clears for you soon. Glad to hear about the Wind Guru. That’s a new one for me.

    thanks for your concern vester

    but read this thread


    I was attacked by a well known journalist for promulgating dangerous practices in my films

    it seems that cans never explode as long as they are kept below 100 degrees C

    as in boiling point – and in a saucepan of boiling water they cannot get above 100. Its direct heat that makes them explode.

    So – give it a try – it really really works – is safe – and saves on the washing up

    KTL gives it to you straight

    Hi dylan (this is the other Paul)

    The cans can reach more than 100C (aka – pressure cooker) but if you let them boil dry it could be a problem!

    One of the problems with Gas cooking is the condesation as the gas burning creates lots of H2O.

    I think the local pies are preferable to the ‘Fray Bentos’ you cooooooked a while ago.

    Keep up the good work and improve on the food hygene – or – drink mor beer :)

    Thnaks Paul, I promise not to let the saucepan boil dry – artly because I need the hot water for washing the plate and cutlery in.

    the condensation is pretty awaful – – but the hatch is always open a bit when I am cooking.

    I rather like the traditional mushiness of the Fray bentos though

    Next safety worry….

    How do you feel about running with scizzors?

    could I ad these threads



    hang on – what am I saying – this is KTL – I am holding the tiller

    however, some Brits and some Australians who would rather cling to their beliefs than to good clean, clear science
    they are both a great read

    read the threads, interesting. my wife has been boiling cans of sweetened condensed milk for a sweet treat all her life ..never a problem

    some people did get a bit heated at me though. One chap caliming to be chef said it was dangerous because the contents of the can were not sterile and if not heated right through I could get ill – so the sailnet thread was great fun

    got three new subscribers off the back of that thread

    Many years ago while a teenager camping in the Catskill Mts in New York with my two buddies, unbeknownst to them, after supper I placed a large can of Del Monte green beans in the middle of the huge roaring fire we had built. We had had a very strenuous full pack hike that day, set up camp, put up our tents, collected firewood, and cooked and washed up supper. As we luxuriated and dozed on our backs near the warm fire (I having the good sense to stay a bit further back than my friends), suddenly the can exploded with much more force than expected, knocking over our pyramid of burning logs, sending sparks and glowing bits of green bean all over everything in a 20 foot radius! This included my two friends. They immediately jumped up as I took off into the dark woods with them in hot pursuit. Being largely unscathed, I outran them despite laughing my fool head off. I sensibly waited a little and returned, to see the flecked clothes and faces of my pals. Hysterical. You need to be seventeen to really appreciate it, but I still laugh when I think aboiut it now. Quite a good laugh, but probably a bad camping practice! Needless to say my pals took a while to see the humor. –Ray KYC New Jersey
