Sun Oven Solar Cooker

Off-Grid Food Prep

A first try at solar cooking
Saturday, August 31, 2013, 11:55 AM

Today, I want to switch gears from my usual fare and discuss something a little different. Each month, I want to try and accomplish a routine task completely “Off-Grid.” This month, special thanks to a decent little garden, I wanted to do an article on a project that includes as close to exclusively as possible things that I’m growing myself.

Because there are so many more qualified and experienced speakers on this subject, I rarely veer into the realm, although it’s one I enjoy very much: Cooking. » Read more

5 easy sun-oven recipes
Saturday, August 18, 2012, 9:26 AM

We hit 108°F this week in the Sierra Foot Hills of California.  It's too hot to do much of anything, but it is definitely too hot to cook in the house.  We have used our sun oven all summer, but this week we were particularly thankful to have an outdoor cooking apparatus, something that requires no electricity, charcoal, or propane.

The following recipes are fool-proof, easy, and reliable recipes for cooking in your sun-oven.  You don't have to own a sun oven or solar cooker to use these recipes; you can easily use these recipes in your electric or gas oven as well.  However, I highly recommend a sun oven.  They are efficient, easy to use, and help to keep the heat outside on hot summer days. » Read more
