Sun Cooked Breakfast
Monday, August 30, 2010
Look for the Global Sun Oven booth in the Be Ready Utah event area.
Watch for my Fair Deal Special on the purchase of an oven. See me at the fair or check back here at fair time.
Remember, September is National Preparedness Month!
A Sun Oven is a great item to add to your preparedness items.

Here is a yummy recipe.
Easy Rhubarb Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
2/3 cup sugar
3 cups chopped rhubarb
Mix up cake mix as directed on the box except use only 1/2 of the oil and add the 2/3 cup of sugar. After mixing, stir in the rhubarb and bake in one 9x13" cake pan or divide it between your two 7x11" cookie pans. You can stack the two 7x11's criss-cross in your Sun Oven. (You may need to leave the bottom one in a few minutes longer than the one on top.) The cake is done when it reaches a golden brown.

I had a busy day the other day with little time on my schedule to prepare dinner, but the sun was out so I took advantage of it. I pulled a 2 pound pork roast from the freezer, put it in a pot, smothered it with about a cup of BBQ sauce and put it in my oven outside about 10 a.m. After running errands, I went out to work in the garden around 1 p.m. and could smell the roast cooking. About 3 o'clock I brought it in the house, removed the cooked roast and shredded the very tender meat. Then I returned the meat to the juices in the pot and put it back out in the oven to keep warm until dinner time. We had the tasty pork on hard roll buns with a potato salad. Very easy, very yummy.
Go ahead, amaze yourself with how easy it is to cook with the Sun.

The colder temperature, along with the boiling liquid in the pot, created quite a bit of condensation on the oven glass. To cure that, I just ventilated it a bit by placing a Popsicle stick between the glass and the rubber gasket. This probably takes a little bit of the heat out of the oven, but not nearly as much as the fog on the window blocking the sun out.
Simply Delicious Beans
5 c. soaked, cooked beans, drained. (About 2 c. dried)
2-3 c. water
2 T. dried onion
1 1/2 t. beef bullion
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. ground cumin
1/8 t. pepper
Pinch of ground ginger
Pinch of garlic powder
Combine all ingredients; bring to a boil. Simmer, covered 20-30 minutes. Serves 4-5
Variation 1: Add carrots or any other vegetable. If dehydrated, add additional water to rehydrate.
Variation 2: Add 1 t. honey and 1 c. salsa. Serve over rice.
*Recipe from the book "Emergency Food in a Nutshell"
Note: Soak beans (3 c. water to 1 c. beans) over night. Drain, add fresh water for cooking. OR: Bring water and beans to boil. Boil 2 min. then turn off. Soak for 2 hours. Cook in fresh water. Discarding soaking and cooking water helps to reduce the gas digesting beans causes. Eating them with rice makes a complete protein and helps with the gas also.

Some folks have asked whether you can use the SUN OVEN indoors or not. Well, here is your answer! Yes, it does work. Not as well as outside, but it works.
I have a South facing picture window in my living room. This time of year we get lots of sun coming through the window, so I decided to try it out. I set up one oven outside and one oven inside to compare. My front window has 2 panes of glass, plus a storm window with 2 panes of glass, some of which I believe is low-E.
The results? Even though the outside temperature was cold (around 40 degrees), the outside oven heated up faster and hotter than the one inside. I got about 300 degrees outside compared to 250-270 degrees inside. Not bad indoors, still hot enough for a slow cook. I put some cookies in and they cooked fine. It took them longer (almost twice as long) at the lower temperature.
Another good option: My garage also faces South. When I open up the garage door, I get about 6-8 feet of sunshine on the garage floor. I moved the car and set the oven up in the garage. This works well to protect the oven if the wind is blowing some outside.
Try your oven out for winter cooking. I'm finding things take a little longer because; (1) the sun is furthur away in the winter (make sure you adjust the leg all the way up to tilt the oven as the sun is also lower on the horizon), (2) there seems to be more haze in the atmosphere especially if we are experiencing an inversion.
Also the day is much shorter so plan carefully to get your food cooked before you lose the sun.

Part of my goal was to not use my house oven at all during the summer. I have only had to turn it on once when I was baking pizza outside and we lost the sun. My pizza was only half baked and could not finish, so I had to bring it inside to finish it up. My kitchen has stayed cool this summer which has saved on our cooling bill. That's a good thing.

I knew my primitive little cooker could be greatly improved upon, as it had some definite limitations. As I continued to gather information, I came across the Global Sun Oven. I was intrigued and eventually bought one. And I am glad I did! This little wonder has proven to be all it claims to be. I have had a blast cooking all kinds of things. Now it's to the point where if on a sunny day I don't have my oven out and cooking something, I feel like I am wasting the sun energy. That's the conservationist side of me.
