Just wondering Byron.... do you ever use electricity? Do you use electricity at home?

Even though we camp, we still love the up to date electric items.. that makes it easier for us to enjoy camping. We still boondock and love it too....

We think[b] everyone should camp whatever way is best for them. Propane, electric, dutch oven, or just over an open fire.. just love what you do.

Microwave, TV, video, vaccuum cleaners.. if it's what you want to do... enjoy!
I really do agree with you that everybody should camp in a manner that's best for them.
Do I use electricity at home? Not very much. My house runs on natural gas where ever possible.

Use electricity camping? I used a woodburning pen once while camping and plugged in, does that count?

Hi Rosemary,

I have to admit, I'm scared of pressure cookers - I think my mother drilled this fear of exploding pressure cookers into me. I need to get over it and get mine out. I bet the seal is all dried out and I should replace it before I try to use it.

I recently purchased a cookbook software called Cook'n. I really, really like the organizer for this software and all the recipes I've tried have been good. (One can add many different cookbooks of recipes to this software.) I noticed that for $19.95, they have a cookbook called

Cook'n Under Pressure

Side Note: Their website is a bit confusing (I think). It looks like one has to buy additional software to run this cookbook but that is only for those purchasing a download. If you buy the CD, the organizational software is included.

Nancy

I do hear that often when I talk about my pressure cooker to people who don't use one. Seems mothers of a generation ago must have had some experiences because people often mention food on the ceiling after an explosion. I have never had a problem so perhaps designs have changed. I used to use mine a lot when I was working and had kids at home who needed dinner on the table, then got out of the habit. I have recently started using it again and we really like how it cooks cheaper cuts of meat and fried chicken done in it is sooooo tender it falls off the bone. I tried spareribs as well and they don't need the pre-simmer that a lot of recipes call for -- the pressure cooker really makes them tender. Anyway, enough food talk, it's making me hungry. But I will ask for that little camping one for Christmas -- Mountain Equipment Co-op here in Canada has it in their catalogue. I hope I have encouraged you to get yours out again Nancy and thanks for the link.

Rosemary

I really like the way a pressure cooker makes food taste (alot like a crock pot only way faster) I am still using a pressure cooker that is 65 years old and it does make me a little nervous when it hisses and jiggles so i may consider a new one........ not sure yet.
This following site is nothing but pressure cooker recipes and the majority of the recipes are FREE.
(By the way I made Lima Bean soup which i can't stand for my wife....but when done in the pressure cooker it was really good and now i like it.....Go Figure!)

Pressure cooking while camping saves time for fun, not to mention, propane. When you can "pre soak" the beans in 5 minutes, and cook them in 10 you have saved a lot of propane.

Keep one permanently packed in the trailer.

Lora and i have had a pressure cooker that regulates the temp. automatically for about 25 years.
it was built by Louis Nye in Oakland/Alameda, for canning (in cans). he is a master at all things
in canning and nutrition.
so we have canned a lot of albacore, salmon, beef, chicken, etc.
we also have 2 or 3 other pressure cookers for use at home and in the trailer. recently we bought
a smaller one for the trailer.

I have a small camping pressure cooker (REI model) - so far I've used it for rice and old-fashioned steel cut oatmeal. It works great - although it is very small (and not quite as cute as Byron's).

Rosemary I inherited a "brand new still in the box" old presto pressure cooker....I have the original cookbook that went with it and would be happy to loan it to you for you to go thru and pick out the reciepes you might want to copy for your own..drop me a quick line if you want me to send it off to you Its about 3 x 5 and has 127 pages ranging from soups, veggies, meats, combination dishes, desserts, steamed breads and even dressings and sauces. I have to add this when I went looking at the reciepes I came across poultry and "game" in it there is a reciepe for squirrel (probley tastes like chicken)..The book is very informative and gives alot of info with time tables for all kinds of food.

Only if you show me how to use mine I have yet to use it because I didn't want to blow my house up..I have seen my great grandmother use one but other than that I have no experience. I will go make a few copies that way I can pass a few out. Will trade copies for helpful trailer advice or a good beer .
