Cooking with the sun shows how to harness the sun’s energy in preparing food. It presents detailed plans, liberally illiustrated with line drawings and photos, for building solar ovens that can cook a 12 pound turkey in three hours, and a solar reflector “hot plate” that perks coffee and cooks steak, bacon and eggs, hot cakes and other stove-top meals. The oven will reach temperatures of 375 degrees F, and the “hot plate” 650 degrees F.
