I love my SUN OVEN. This is the most amazing way to cook! Great for emergencies, camping, saving energy, or just for FUN. Get excited about using the sun for cooking, then give me a call. Connie Mason, The Sun Oven Lady

Breakfast in the Sun Oven

This is taken from the blog at solarcook.net.  Excellent idea, I'm going to have to try this.

Sun Cooked Breakfast

Campers and preparedness minded folks often ask about making breakfast in a Sun Oven.  There is a way to adjust a Sun Oven to allow it to heat up with the first light of day. Early in the morning the sun is very low on the horizon and  the  reflectors block the sun from reaching the chamber. If the leveling tray is removed the Sun Oven can be turned on its back so the side with the adjusting leg is on the ground or table top. In this position the wall behind the thermometer becomes the floor of the oven. A trivet or small rack can be placed behind the thermometer and pots or pans can be placed on the trivet.

(Keep in mind that if the leveling tray is removed, pots and pans should be placed on a trivet, not on the floor of the oven. To cook evenly, there must be air flow all the way around the pot. A trivet will allow air to pass under the pot and ensure an even heat.)  

Placing the Sun Oven in this position can also add cooking time at the end of the day.  The only drawback of cooking  with the Sun Ovens in this position is that you need to stand on your head to read the thermometer!

It's Fair Time Again

Come see me at the Utah State Fair September 9th thru 13th (the first 5 days of the fair).

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.

Summer Time

It's July! It's HOT! And it is a great time to be using your Sun Oven. Keep the heat outside by cooking outside and not heating up your kitchen. (And then having to cool it down with your AC.) Saves on your energy bill.

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.

It's Spring!! Warmer Days and More Sun

The weather is warming up and we have had some nice sunny days. Time to get the Sun Ovens outside again.

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.
