LOL LOL LOL - some very interesting answers!! I guess I was thinking, if you were limited to only 15 ingredients for all aspects of cooking for a long while, which would you choose....

If I were in a true "Castaway" situation, I would have chosen to add a goat. To me goats are AWESOME! They produce great fibers, you get milk and cheese, they eat almost anything, so you don't have to worry too much about feeding them, and push comes to shove, they have tasty meat.

Oh, and the reason I capitalized CHOCOLATE is because, although I put it last, I could live on it alone for weeks and weeks and weeks!!! YUM

If you have eggs and flour on your list, don't put pasta on it, you have it. DO put a plentiful supply of fresh water. No, that stuff around the island probably is salt water and undrink-able.

I must have read Robinson Crusoe 20 times when I was a kid...loved that book.
I have fantasies about my own "special island", and it looks a lot like a smaller version of Maoui, which hardly qualifies it as a desert island, but then, it's my fantasy
So...I'm assuming that I have fresh water on the island along with assorted flora and fauna, and that I have salvaged a few pots, pans, knives, an ax, shovel, machete and fishing equipment from the shipwreck, as Robin did.
Here's what I'd need:

1. pepper
2. cornmeal
3. salt pork
4. baking powder
5. baking soda
6. sugar
7. rice
8. beans
9. flour
10. tea
11. powdered eggs
12. powdered milk
13. powdered cheese flavoring
14. granulated garlic
15. Spam
