It’s easy being Red, White and Blue AND Green, when you start cooking with the free energy from our sun. Food cooked in solar ovens cook in their own juices and thereby retain healthy vitamins and minerals.
Wear your patriotism on your sleeve…culinary smock sleeve that is, by using a free resource to prepare a plethora of everyday meals. Make meatloaf, hamburgers, roasts, stews, soups, baked vegetables and so on. You are only limited by your culinary imagination with a solar oven. Why stand over a hot, Smokey and smothering grill, when you can make most of the same meals, by just putting food into pots, then into a solar oven and simply placing it in the yard to let the sunshine do the work? Could it be easier? And, you’ll save money and help the environment of our country by doing so. Yes, using a solar oven is saving “green” and being “green” at the same time. No need to use any charcoal, propane or other fossil fuels to make great meals for friends and family gatherings. You and consumers will also avoid possible ingesting harmful carcinogens by solar cooking vs. the popular grill method.
So, be more patriotic and start using a solar “grill” right away!
Yes, maybe it’s still winter, but why not plan ahead for a summertime backyard bash? You can make barbecued chicken in a solar oven and shock those friends who may be expecting the same carcinogen– flavored meal. Check out this recipe:
2 Tbs ketchup
2 Tbs mustard
3 Tbs apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp red or cayenne pepper(or freshly ground black)
“pinch” of cumin
2 Tbs molasses
approximately 2 lbs boneless & skinless chicken breasts or thighs
First, wash off the chicken as usual, in cold water, then pat dry by using a paper towel. Place it in a thin-walled dark metal covered roaster pan (2 – 3 quart) for 1 to 1 1/2 hours of good quality sunshine. Quickly remove it from the chamber and pour off the liquid. Next, mix all the ingredients for the glaze in a bowl first, before spreading it completely over both sides of the chicken parts. Put it back into the covered pot for another hour, or so. Remove your hot and steaming “masterpiece” for all to enjoy.
A great side dish for this is roasted corn on the cob, which can be simultaneously prepared with the chicken in the solar oven chamber.
