    Default Solar Cooking to Save Energy Costs

    Anyone heard of or tried solar cooking? I'm intrigued by the idea. It's too bad summer has already passed, but it's something I will definitely keep in mind for next year. I'm scared to cooked meat or other highly perishable items, but baking cookies or cooking vegetables sounds doable.

    You basically make an insulated box to hold a dark pot. Stick it outside in hot weather, and some time later - voila! It's like a sun-powered crockpot. The details, how to's, and recipes can be found here:

    I can see a lot of benefits of it as far as environmental and energy costs go. You don't have to heat up the kitchen with the oven, stove, or crockpot. And it'd be great when camping.

    Any other suggestions or thoughts? Has anyone actually tried it?
