It is the way I always did it when I was in the Scouts. We also removed the labels and scraped the glue off the can so that we could make tea with the water. It did make using the cans interesting as there was always the chance you would get Ambrosia rice with your mince or beans with your plum duff. Very few of us are dead. And those that are died of natural causes, not bean-related.

Why? Would you use less fuel if you opened the can and put the contents in the pan. or are you trying to save on the washing up.
To save on washing place dishes into string bag and place overboard for the night. Fishes do all the work.

I always though that things like stew were put into cans at the factory raw and the cans were heated to cook the product thus ensuring no possibility of contamination / going bad. Anyone know if this is correct?
