Cape Cod Meals Aboard A Whaler

The staple dish on some whaling ships was a thing called Lobscouse—a stew made of hard-tack and slush (fat), boiled with molasses and water. Potato Scouse was the same thing, with potatoes substituted for hardtack.

Dandy Funk was a pudding made of powdered hardtack and molasses. Fu-fu, or mush corn meal scalded with molasses was served every day. Occasionally they had fish and potatoes. Salt horse (salted beef) and salt pork were staples. Sometimes there were whale scraps, or porpoise meat, or shark.
