This is an excellent video of how to correctly bake using dutch ovens placed into the SOS Sport Solar Oven. Very easy baking without using gas, electric or a wood fire. No pollution, ready for an emergency, and no burning of food. Try it!

 

It’s difficult not to have fun while solar cooking. Prep it and set it, then go do something around the house..or not. Return to open and devour delicious food.

This recipe has been handed down to me from those “in the know” (friends & relatives). Although I may have consumed it, I have not personally tried this dish in my solar cook oven. However, if everything else is prepared the same, it will simply require more boiling time in the solar oven. Groundhogs are not hunted as much for food anymore, so it’s been awhile since I’ve partaken of any of its cuisine. Please leave a comment if you have a similar recipe, or have made another groundhog dish. I’d love to feature it.

Ingredients:

1 groundhog
1 large, sliced onion
2/3 cup of sliced celery
Flour
Water and Vinegar
Salt and pepper
Cloves

Preparation:

First, skin and clean the groundhog. It must have the sacs/glands removed from its back and forearms. Next, cut it into serving pieces. Soak the meat overnight in a potful of half vinegar and half water ( to remove gamey flavor) with less than half the onion and a good dash of salt. The next day, drain off the liquid, wash and wipe the meat. Parboil it on a stove top for 20 to 30 minutes, then drain, and pour in fresh boiling water over all. Add the remainder of the onion, celery, a couple cloves. You may then salt and pepper to taste. Boil until meat is tender, then add flour to thicken gravy.

By using the solar oven, add at least a 2 hours of cooking time for this recipe, as the steps to make it means opening the solar chamber a couple times, thus losing cooking temperature. Use the covered thin-walled dark metal pot (dutch oven) for cooking the groundhog. Who knows, after a meal like this, you may get better at predicting the weather!

Arroz con Pollo...one of our favorite meals. Check out this great video featuring the well-designed SOS Sport Solar Oven:

 

You may not think so, but we feel there’s not much better than a chicken & rice dish, created in a solar oven.
