Ship Provisions

Ship’s Provisions

My shipboard cooking display includes typical provisions on a sailing vessel.  From left to right in the picture is front row-a box of tea, dried beans and rice, dried apples and raisins; second row- a gill cup filled with coffee beans, salted cod, and dried beef.  There is a bowl of pounded ship biscuit at the back of the table.  From these staples, ships cooks would create a variety of meals.
