Split Pea and Ham Soup from Preps on the Rocket Stove

Shot a bit of video for you guys last night as I whipped up some split pea and ham soup on the Jamaican Coal Pot and the Dutch Oven.   This was the first time I used the coal pot with a dutch oven and it really excels for slow simmer cooking.

I did want to do this in the solar oven but as you can see in the video it simply wasn’t possible.  This is a good example of why having multiple cooking options is a great idea.

  1. Your podcast productivity has been intense this week. Thanks!
    It’ll take me a while to get caught up but it appears that when the Honorable Wife is out of town, more goodies come through the magic interwebs from Jack. Good luck with your move to TX. To borrow a line from Rush, it doesn’t matter where ‘here’ is, so long as you are with us.

    Suggested future episode: The logistics and costs, etc, of moving and things to think about most people get surprised by.

  2. Jack-Does you wife know you have this much fun when she is out of town? :)

  3. Hey there. Really enjoying your videos and reviews. I’ve bought a couple of bits and pieces you’ve recommended and am thrilled with my purchases, especially the Eton Scorpion. I did somehow manage to break the swivel off the crank, but being an engineer means it was quickly repaired…

    Very informative and well put together.

    Thanks,

      From the Hormel website FAQ:

      The processing techniques utilized by Hormel Foods makes the canned product safe for use indefinitely if the product seal remains intact, unbroken and securely attached to a can that has been well maintained. It is suggested that all canned products be stored in a cool and dry environment to keep the flavor adequately preserved. For maximum flavor it is recommended that the product be used within three years of the manufacturing date. After that period of time, the product is still safe to use however, the flavor gradually declines.
