Summer is my favorite season. Truly. Everything in the garden is in full swing, the chickens are laying eggs non stop, new life is growing all around the homestead. It’s a great time to experiment with new recipes with veggies from the garden as well. But, the heat in the kitchen from cooking is unbearable at times. Especially since we don’t have air conditioning. So, during the heat of the summer, and even in the winter, we cook with our Solar Oven.
Cooking in a solar oven harnesses the power of the sun. It keeps the heat out of the kitchen, and you can make just about anything in a solar oven that you would in a regular oven, or a stove top! From whole chickens, to bread and desserts, you can do it all!
