I am going to do a cheat solar oven later this week (meant to be 37) and try to dry some fruit.2.molly Says: January 11th, 2009 at 5:59 am e WTG girl, looks delicious!3.naturewitch Says: January 11th, 2009 at 7:07 am e Feeling just a little bit envious, except I don’t like the heat needed to produce such results. Well done! It looks scrumptious. xx4.Teresa Says: January 11th, 2009 at 11:58 am e This looks DE-LISC-IOUS!!!!Maybe I’ll have to build a solar cooker 5.Leah Says: January 11th, 2009 at 5:36 pm e So how did it taste? I made a solar oven back in high school, but it took 3 hours to cook one sausage, so it was disassembled pretty quick.6.admin Says: January 11th, 2009 at 6:30 pm e The bread was super crunchy on the outside and light and fluffy on the inside.Love it!I tried to build my own but couldn’t get the temps over 60 degrees. Had to buy this one.7.Julie Says: January 11th, 2009 at 7:23 pm e Looks fabulous L. Do you have any condensation issues when you are baking? My oven is the same as yours but I find that I get condensation dripping back onto my bread (erk). I tried tilting the oven slightly but the back (and mirror) seemed unstable,and leaving the lid open a crack means it doesn’t get hot enough inside. I’ve never done it on a 37′C day though - maybe that’s the secret?Julie
8.Di Says: January 11th, 2009 at 7:54 pm e looks delish - now I am craving bread (and I’m trying to cut carbs bugger, you will have to enjoy it for me.)9.admin Says: January 11th, 2009 at 8:51 pm e Julie there wasn’t any condensation at all. Could be that it evaporated as soon as it happened - ask Molly, it has been bl**dy hot here for the last two weeks!10.river Says: January 12th, 2009 at 3:51 am e Looks wonderful. Is it possible to bake a loaf with a less crunchy crust? I love bread crust but but my teeth can only handle so much, excessive hard chewing causes me several days worth of aching. Where do I buy a solar oven? Do they come with recipe suggestions?11.admin Says: January 12th, 2009 at 4:22 am e Yes, I left it in the solar oven way too long so I got a nice crunchy crust (The Husband complained!) I bought it from here http://www.rpc.com.au/catalog/solar-cooker-190mm-p-2201.htmlThere is a link in my blog list (where I go for inspiration) for solar recipes. The oven comes with an instructional dvd.12.Kristy Says: January 12th, 2009 at 6:00 am e oooh yummo! I always wondered how a solar oven would go - thanks for trial testing it for me nice work and one way to take advantage of the past week’s high temps - without heating up the house 13.jo-anne Says: January 12th, 2009 at 6:42 am e Wow that looks great. But it hasn’t been hot enough here lately. Only a couple of days in the 30’s so far. weird summer we are having. I’d like to have a go at building one for Guides.14.admin Says: January 12th, 2009 at 6:54 am e Jo-Anne, go hassle Apprentice Domestic Goddess; her DH made a great one in which she cooked soup!
