COOK/ CAN WITH THE SUN!

OTHER THINGS CAN BE PREPARED IN THE SOLAR OVEN!

Canning can be done in the solar oven- or how about a solar baked New York style cheese cake! Have you ever made Polenta?


Tomatoes being canned in canning jars.

Acid fruits and tomatoes can be "canned" in the solar oven. The process is simple. In this case tomatoes are packed into a clean canning jar, water is added leaving 1/2" head space at the top of the jar. The dome type canning lids are snugged onto the jars. Then the jars are placed into the solar oven that has been heated to at least 215 F ( sea-level) The contents of the jars will boil past the lids after a couple of hours or so. The jar is then removed, wiped clean, and allowed to cool. Repeat this process for as many jars as there are in the oven. After cooling, each jar is checked for a positive lid seal. If a lid did not seal, then simply add more water and process again. This non pressurization canning method is safe for acid fruits and tomatoes only. Conventional canning methods must be used for non acid type of foods.


SOLAR OVEN CHEESECAKE (New York style)
Yes, you can bake an old fashioned dessert in the solar oven!

 
Cream cheese, flour, sugar, eggs, and some grated lemon and orange are poured into a graham cracker crust. (see the RECIPES PAGE)

 RECIPES PAGE 


 
The pan is covered and allowed to bake in the solar oven for about 2 3/4 hour at 250F (or until a toothpick comes out clean) The cheese cake is chilled and served. No compromise here! This is the real thing- put some cherries on top! 
POLENTA  this is just too easy !

  
3 cups water, 1 cup corn meal, dash salt (some cayenne if you like)- stir, cover- 2 3/4 hours in the solar oven until firm. Chill, slice, and fry or steam. This stuff goes with anything from beans to jam! 




The Global Sun Oven is the best commercially made solar oven on the market. It gets up to 350 F, folds up for portability, weighs just 21 lbs, and will last a lifetime. I use the Sun Oven almost every day.

With this oven, as long as you have a clear, sunny day, you can cook in the middle of Winter!
