Solar Oven Demonstration
Yesterday, I gave a solar oven demonstration at Preparing Wisely, a food storage store in Mesa Arizona. I baked several pans of brownies as samples so I got there early in order to get the brownies in the oven. I wanted to be sure that they would be done by the time my demo was over. But the day was bright and shiny and hot — in fact so bright and shiny and hot that the ovens reached a temperature of 350º and the brownies were done in record time. One pan of brownies was left in a little bit too long and were a little bit overdone. But we enjoyed them anyway.
I discussed all of the basic elements of solar cooking; i.e., types of cookware, how to position the oven for best cooking, the WAPI etc. Although the attendance was small, the people were eager to learn, full of questions, and very participatory. We all had a great time. I hope you will join me at the next solar oven demo.
