Survival Kitchen–Get This Book and Start Cooking with the Sun

This week’s DestinySurvival Pick of the Week is Cooking With Sunshine: The Complete Guide to Solar Cuisine with 150 Easy Sun-Cooked Recipes, by Lorraine Anderson and Rick Palkovic. Letting you know about this is a no-brainer because solar cooking could be essential for survival. It can be done wherever there’s sunshine. It doesn’t require additional fuel and is simple to do.

Cooking With Sunshine is a definitive guide that not only offers a wide variety of recipes, but includes step by step, illustrated info on making your own simple solar cooker with items you have around the house or can get inexpensively.

If you’d rather not build your own solar cooker, but want a quality commercially produced solar oven instead, Cooking with Sunshine has info on where you can buy one. The authors also explain the benefits of solar cooking compared to traditional methods. They describe what works and what doesn’t.

As one of the reviewers on points out, you can use any recipe when cooking with the sun. Allow twice the cooking time for conventional recipes. When you’re starting out, this book is a great solar cooking recipe resource.

You don’t have to wait for an emergency or disaster to use solar cooking. When it’s hot in the summer, you don’t want to heat up your kitchen or draw extra electricity to cook. Solar cooking offers you a great alternative. Of course, you can cook with sunshine when you’re camping, too. The kids will think it’s really neat.

Add Cooking With Sunshine to your survival kitchen collection. Click on the book’s title wherever you see it linked in this post. You’ll be taken to the page where it’s featured. Order it there. Better yet, order an extra copy to give as a gift and introduce someone you care about to an important preparedness cooking alternative.

As long as the sun shines, take advantage of its free energy to prepare your food.
