With years of solar cooking under our belts, we've picked up some best practices that will make your solar cooking adventures even more enjoyable and delicious.
1. Set A Timer
Treat the stove like an oven. Perhaps the most common mistake made by new GoSun users is underestimating how quickly food can cook on a sunny day. To prevent petrifying your potatoes, set a timer or just ask Siri to remind you.
2. Line the Tray for Easy Cleanup
Tray liners are a great way of limiting mess and quickly transitioning from one dish to the next. There are a few techniques you can use depending on your culinary preferences.
3. Use The My Radar App to Track Cloud Cover
4. Set-It-And-Forget-It Using Shadows
Want a hands-free, set-it-and-forget-it approach to the perfect cook? By predicting the Sun's path you can use shadows as an auto timer to keep your food from overcooking. This technique just requires a bit of calculation, but the concept is simple.
6. Vent Moisture to Cook Crispy Breads
Looking to get a good crust on your baguette? Here's the secret: once the bread has fully risen, open the tray and let out the moisture for a few seconds. Then continue cooking with the tray cracked open for another 5 minutes or until crunchy.
The same technique can be used for meat with the GoSun Grill's drip tray, to get a more crispy texture on those chicken wings.
7. Get Some Inspiration From the GoSun Recipe Blog and Community Kitchen Facebook Page
It's fun to experiment, but even Picasso needed some inspiration! Visit the GoSun Recipe Blog to explore our latest creations, such as our Solaricious Salmon Bake in a Butter Rub or our healthy and hearty Vegetable Quinoa Pilaf.
