Cooking with the Sun

Save money on fuel and be kind to the environment by cooking with the sun. They are also great for keeping the heat on the outside of the boat on hot days.

Cooking with a solar oven can be a lot of fun but they cost anywhere from $20 to over $300! Build your own solar oven with these simple plans available in many languages. Many of these solar cookers fold flat to save space and all you need is some cardboard, aluminum foil, and glue.

For more information about solar cooking take a look at these books.

I love this idea for when we manage to sail in warmer areas. Solar anything up here is hit or miss. But, hey, I still remember trying to actually fry an egg on a sidewalk when I was a kid. Of course, that was in Texas. There's solar shower on the market that is pretty cheap, and it actually works in Washington state on the warmer days.
