Solar lemon bars

by Cookie

Hey guys.

So when I go to the store I try to look for things that would easily be used in my sun oven. Well I happened across a sale of lemon bars, as I am not crafty enough a baker to make my own. I tried them out yesterday and it worked really well. Though it took longer than I would have liked due to wind. So I am wondering if you all have had any experience cutting down on the wind. If you know of anything, give me a shout.

Anyway- the lemon bars, after cooking for a good two hours, turned out fabulous! Should be getting more good weather here soon to cook more in it. I want to try pizza. And that will be home made!

Till next time


Nothing wrong with lemon bars from a box mix.
We do the same, and yes they are good...and easy.

Great to hear from you and to know that the sun is coming back to North Carolina.

By the way,

We also do a lemon cake from one of our site contributors that is easy to solar cook

Solar Cookers and Wind
by: Nathan

Wind can definitely be a challenge when solar cooking, and we have our share of very windy days as well here in the Desert Southwest.
I have had every one of my many varieties of solar cookers blow over at least once, if not more with a strong gust.
There's nothing like beans, or chicken or sauce all over inside of a solar cooker, or on the ground, to ruin a meal.

When it is windy I will brace and stabilize my Sun Oven with a couple of bricks on each side of the oven as well as two in front and in the back and this usually helps.
I know of people who use bungee cords attached to the wood collar of the Sun Oven and then they attach the same bungee cords to a piece of plywood on the which they have placed their Sun Oven and this does well to stabilize it against breezes.
There are many ways to brace or stabilize a solar cooker in the wind.
Even a parabolic can be braced against the wind in similar fashion.
