      If you are trapped on a deserted island... salt surrounds you.

    2. French Bread, Cheese and Chicken

      1. Shoyu and whole pigs. And I'd trade the third ingredient slot for more pigs.

          what is SHOYO?dont think we get that down here.

          1. re: brady73

            Shoyu is the Japanese term for soy sauce. As for me, Flour, yeast, and salt.

                I know that I've not come up w/ my own list yet - b/c I keep being stymied by the lack of a cooking vessel - my first thought - I'm sure b/c of the water/fire reference - was pasta - but I finally realized that I'm not going to have a nice big pot to cook it in. So, I'm wondering, what would you be doing with your flour, yeast and salt.

                  you could probably still make bread....ham sandwiches anybody?

                    Well, I'm assuming that with the ocena all around me I can always acquire good sea salt... maybe my third ingredient should just be whole boar or whole duck or whole cow (I'm just too much of a carnivore). As for flour yeast and salt I can make all sorta of bread over an open fire... I've found I can just eat bread all day long.
