Be a Green Advocate with your Solar Oven
For those of us not living in the Third World, using a solar oven may be somewhat of a novelty. Of course, part of the reason for these writings is to inform people everywhere about the use and practicality of solar cooking. No matter where you may be from, the applications for solar ovens exist. We are hoping to make sun cooking a mainstream item. They’ve been used worldwide, from the jungles of Africa to the base camps of Mt. Everest.
Be your own green advocate by using one. You can demonstrate to others, how well they work. Just have them taste the results! This way you’ll be able to influence others through your own bit of a greener lifestyle. You can bake, boil or steam a wide variety of foods. Food dehydration can also be done with the solar oven. Another important use is water pasteurization, one that campers, hikers of the outback and many in the Third World have come to respect. I often wonder if, while having so much fun making tasty food in the oven, the typical solar chef ever reflects on the possible results of their actions. After all, by solar cooking, they are saving natural resources (gas, coal, wood), reducing their carbon footprint, reducing deforestation, and maybe saving a life or two in there.
So, if you haven’t started already, see about getting one of these amazing devices. You’ll soon learn to prepare many of your traditional meals, and, if you keep in touch here, we’ll continue supplying recipes. Yes, you can be greener and start saving the planet one delicious meal at a time.
