Cooking Food in the Solar Oven

Posted by KatWoro on March 2nd, 2012

To ensure that food is cooked well enough for eating, please use a thermometer and refer to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency information for a video on food safety tips and recommended internal food temperatures:

Baking Containers - be creative in what you use but make sure they fit in the bottom of the oven - we suggest the aluminum foil pans with one painted black and then using a non-painted one to place the food in, place the food in an oven bag (used for cooking turkeys) and then place that in the painted pan. Feel free to use other ideas (the painting part is kind of tricky) and here are some suggestions:

  • Frozen/fresh food entries with the black containers that can go in ovens
  • Mason jars painted black on the outside
  • Small dark roasting pans
  • Place the food on aluminum foil and then wrap it up and place the aluminum foil package in the oven
