Today I would like you to meet Eden Bellenson who, with her mother Ann, are fabulous consultants on my team. They have a passion for living a THRIVE-ing lifestyle, as you can tell by her tag of MakeURPantryThrive! We received our Sun Ovens about the same time but they excelled at using theirs before I even got my out of the box. Please enjoy one of their adventures in Sun Oven cooking.
Sun (Solar) Oven cooking has been front and center of our cooking for the last several months.
The August heat wave and a very high electric bills propelled us to the Sun Oven. We used our host benefits which made the oven even more affordable. Plus the oven was an early Christmas present for us. Upon unwrapping our Christmas-in-August contraption we approached the whole concept as a new adventure. We followed the instructions, videos and the hints that the Sun Oven company provided and set the oven outside in our driveway on a patio table facing the southwest.
As we unfolded the reflector panels the thermometer inside the oven shot up to 150F in ~5min and 10min later it was up to 300F. And soon realized we were needing potholders!!
Seeing it was quickly reaching 350F we decided to put it to the test. In honor of Julia Child's, our first recipe we tried was a garden veggie quiche using a combination of Thrive foods and tomatoes from our garden. The Sun Oven cooked the quiche in 30 minutes and tasted even better than the house oven version in the same amount of time.
We knew then we were hooked! It's been hard to contain our excitement since and all the advantages of cooking with just the sun (no electricity) and to top it off the end results tasted even better than the conventional ways. Chicken cacciatore and any subsequent chicken recipe we have tried, the chicken has been so moist, that the it literally falls off the bones!!
We've learned all you need is a clear day and it does not matter what the air temperature outside is, as long as there is sunlight that oven will cook! So weather permitting, we hope to cook a turkey and all the trimmings it for the holidays.
