We know we’ve been covering Powerless Cooking a LOT the past few weeks. It’s a major goal of ours to become better at this stuff… but
We DO remember what it was like to find all these tools COMPLETELY overwhelming.
So from now on, we’ll post most of our weekly attempts at cooking a meal without power on our Summer Adventures page. You may want to bookmark that page, or subscribe to our new YouTube channel to get immediate access to the videos (more on our YouTube channel next week). We’ll still mention it on facebook and here and there on the blog, but we’ll be back to a variety of the posts next week.
Since Jodi tried her Sun Oven with rice last week, I worked up the courage to try something in mine. Bread is a staple around here, and I just have to know I could keep cooking it without power. I’m actually going to try bread in the Wonderoven, the Volcano, the Cardboard Box Oven and a Dutch Oven too this summer. I like the idea of having multiples ways of cooking it depending on fuel, and sunshine situations.
Check out this video to see how it went!
Little tidbits of information about the experience:
- The oven took 40 minutes to preheat, but Jodi said hers took 15… so we need to investigate this. Time of day? Positioning? What?
- I did have to reposition it to keep it going faster- however if I hadn’t I think it would have just taken longer and still been good
- There wasn’t a noticeable difference between the two types of pans I used
- I cooked the bread for about 50 minutes. They say to cook things about 20 minutes longer, and this worked just fine
- The bread turned out extra moist
I’m so excited to keep trying new things and to experiment with bread using the other methods.
