The sun came out today

Last night I pre-soaked 7 bean mix in hopes that the sun would shine, so I could hopefully cook them in the solar oven. Well, it was cloudy this morning, so I started cooking them on the stove.
I added garlic, salt, red pepper, and 2 tsp sugar and a few slices of bacon. After a hour and half, the sun came out. So, I set up the sun oven and placed them in there to finish cooking them, to save on propane.
I had errands to do in town, so I left and came back to the beans fully cooked after 2 more hours of cooking in the solar oven. They came out nice and tender and had a thick broth, so decided to make burritos and nachao’s for dinner.
So, you see, you really can cook just about anything in your solar oven. Yummy..

About Hawaii Solar Chef

My mission is to bring about awareness to the community how they can cook healthier meals by using a solar oven. In addition to using a solar oven, they will be able to save money on their energy bills. With this savings, they will be able to buy more food for their family and some to share . Also, I have set up a page for donation for the " Villager Sun Oven" for Hawaii. I encourage others to start their own fundraiser to buy one of these units for their community center, so that in an emergency, they can feed their community and sterilize their water and medical instruments too. http://solarcooking.wikia.com/wiki/Hawaii_Solar_Chef
