  1. So how do you adapt these recipes for the Sun Oven? for example, the beef stew, you heat the oil, brown the beef, remove cook the onions, etc. etc… multiple steps, how do you adapt it for cooking in the sun oven??

    Thanks for all your great posts!

    • When the recipe is ready to bake, place it in a pre-heated solar cooker. Be sure the sky is pretty much cloud-free; the oven should cast a clear shadow. If it doesn’t, that means the sky is too overcast for the cooker to be effective. I recommend cooking your food early in the afternoon and timing it so you’ll know the approximate cook time for that particular recipe.
