  1. This sounds great and I’ll try it next week. Is there any way to print off just the recipe? When it prints it does the whole page including the THERMOS COOKING heading and ends up printing 3 pages. That’s a waste of paper. Thanks!

  2. There are two ways of printing just the recipe:-
    (I) Use your mouse to select just the text that you want and use ‘File’, ‘Print’ and print ‘Selection’.
    (II) Use your mouse to select just the text that you want and then ‘Copy’ & ‘Paste’ it into a Word-Processing package such as Open-Office (which is free) and then you can ‘Save’ it or ‘Print’ it.
    I tend to just save whole pages to my hard disk and refer to them when I want to use the recipe. That way I don’t use ANY paper or ink. By the time you’ve used a recipe a couple of times you probably know it well enough to not need to refer to it (unless you are baking in which case you have to have precise measurements).

    Great site by the way.

  3. Awesome! Never even thought of thermos-cooking, and I thought I was an expert at fringe-living (no electric, no running water, living in vehicle, ect). This technique sounds like great way for someone living in a van, with limited Sterno or propane camping stove, to prepare decent hot meals with very little wasted energy.

  4. Scoob I’m in the same situation, (just stumbled on this site myself… not the fringe-living part!)

    Does the thermos need re-filling with hot water during the 35-40 minutes?
    My 16oz Food jar doesn’t seem to keep water at piping hot temperatures for that long..
