Solar Cooking Holiday
by Joyce Lee
Solar cooking in the winter months even in Southern Utah, requires you to be on your toes and prepared and ready for those few hours or sometimes minutes to capture those UV Rays to make sure your meal gets cooked all the way.
I keep quick menu's and recipes at hand and even quicker plans for parabolic cooking opportunities.
I make kits out of some of my favorite faster baking baked goodies so i can have the oven set out and heated and my stuff mixed almost immediately to go in it quickly!
All through Nov. and Dec. I slipped a quick cookie or cake or bread recipe in the oven whenever there was at least an hour or 2 of good cloud free cooking and then by the week before Christmas I had several kinds of goodies to wrap up and take to family and friends.
I was also able to make a few gourmet popcorns on the parabolic.
I really have had only 3 or 4 days this whole holiday season that were clear from 10:30 to 2:30 consistently, so by being prepared and set up to cook whether at home or at work, I was able to stock the freezer pretty good for Solar Cooked Christmas offerings that no one could turn down!
Here is a list of the items that took anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour or slightly longer to bake.
Yellow Squash bread
Sour Cream Banana Bread
Cinnabon cinnamon roll cake
Peanut Butter/Chocolate Chip cookie bars
Garlic Ranch Snack Crackers
Parmesan Snack Crackers
Tried to save some for New years Eve but looks like I'll be cooking some more for that! Happy Solar Cooking Holidays everyone!
Thanks for sharing Joyce,
Is that where the White Chocolate Mint Popcorn came from, the popcorn you gave me the other day?
It was good.
