General

Most of the PEP sand badge works in an apartment, except for the rocket and solar bits…  So we adjusted the list and added a few more BBs to compensate.

In other words, by completing this badge, you are about 70% of the way to completing the PEP sand badge and have a bit of a dent in the straw badge too!

Just like in PEP, the following are strictly forbidden:
  - Aluminum cookware
  - Teflon and similar materials
  - Microwave ovens
  - Plastic touching the food, including cooking utensils and zip lock bags

Sand

Cook at least two cups grain (or pseudograin) in four different ways
  - Multicooker or pressure cooker (required)
  - Boil on stove and finish in haybox cooker (required)
  - Rice cooker
  - Stovetop
  - Crockpot

Complete the following PEP BBs:
  - Cast iron skillet (select one)
       - Fry an egg so that it slides around
       - Vegan option (do both)
            - A stack of ten pancakes
            - Hash browns that fully cover the skillet
  - Vinegar brine pickle something
  - Salt brine ferment/pickle something
  - Canning (select one)
       - Water bath canning
       - Steam canning
  - Cook stir fry
  - Make soup / stew / chowder
  - Make pizza
  - Bake 2 loaves of bread
  - Make two dairy foods
  - Make two condiments or salad dressings
  - Dry 6 different types of things - each type only once

I can try most of the the sand but I am not a coffee drinker.  I do drink tea...

Also no chili are allowed in my house due to allergies can a sweet pepper be used instead?

This is one of the PEA badges that is still being finalized, so details may change. I think when this one comes up on the roster for discussion, brewing method is probably more important than the brewing content. As to the sweet pepper vs chili, again it is more about understanding the methods, so I could see it being considered fine as long as you were prepping it in the same manner as the hotter variety.

I am thinking of one of the sweet frying peppers that I will be attempting to grow this year.  So they could easily be treated like you would a hot variety.  DH and at least one of our sons reacts to capsaicin in even small amounts and trips to the ER because they can't breathe are not fun.
