Simple Sailing Recipes
I wanted to share some of the recipes that I regularly use while out cruising. I can't claim them as my own but I have adapted some of them to suit us. Some of these recipes have been shared from other cruising families from a wide variety of countries. While baking these recipes I have been heeling heavily on the yacht and still managing to get a good result! If I can do it anyone can!! I hope you enjoy them.
Over night fridge bread
1 teaspoon of salt.
800ml of flour
2 tablespoons of dried yeast.
500ml tepid water
Mix all ingredients together. Place in a greased baking tin. Place in the fridge. The cooler your fridge the less amount of time needed in it. Once the mixture has risen place in a pre heated oven for approx. one hour. tip out of tin and place on a tray, place back in the oven upside down. cook for a further 10-15 minutes.
Is lovely eaten warm, eat within two days. The texture is quite moist with large air holes. This is quite popular with yachties as there is no kneading involved!!
6 oz Butter
4 oz Sugar
6 oz Plain Four
Mix all ingredients together. Roll into balls and place on a greased baking tray. Press down with a fork. Pace a small piece of glazed cherry on top or a chocolate button(optional extras). Bake at 180 degrees until golden brown.
Our children love these. They can be cooked a little longer to make them quite crunchy.
