Solar braised potatoes couldn’t be easier to make. Just spread the spuds out in a single layer in a cast iron pan; small varieties such as fingerlings or butterball work best. Toss in some garlic or onions. Add enough water or broth to reach about halfway up. Drizzle with olive oil or dot with butter. Add bay leaves, rosemary, or other herbs. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover and braise in the Sun Oven until the potatoes are tender. A few minutes on the stove over high heat to let the remaining water evaporate completes the dish.

This thing rocks! Wow, this oven is amazing! I cleaned it with vinegar, as unstructured, and immediately baked two loaves of wheat bread in it. Baking time was about 45 minutes. They came out perfectly! The solar oven temperature reached 325 and stayed there consistently for about 4 hours. I went outside every 30 minutes to realign. No biggy. Very easy to do. There was condensation on the inside of the glass during baking, but this didn’t affect the bread or temperature at all. Very happy with the quality of this product. Made to last and it works. Perfect for emergencies or just keeping the house cool while letting the sun do the work!
