More Solar Cooking Links

I found this list in my drafts folder. It's a collection of links I gathered last year, when I was considering using these plans to build my own solar oven. These are in addition to the links I gave you in my "Crossed Off My Wish List - A Solar Oven!" post. For anyone interested in solar cooking, I hope they are useful.

I'd love to have a go at Solar cooking, but my husband hasn't even started the rocket stove I want him to make first. What is he faffing around at?! It is probably the dry stone wall mending, rabbit fencing, chicken coops and new bee hives that's keeping him busy! Do you needed a given amount of sun shine ?

Weekend-Windup, you're welcome!

Gill, LOL, I know all about that to-do list! We do get a lot of sun but ironically, every time I get the solar cooker out we get clouds. It can still cook with less sun, it just takes longer. Also! There is a solar cooking group in Great Britain, I think it's mentioned in one of those links. You may have to google it though.

Stephanie, you're welcome! I'm looking forward to your DIY solar cooker posts. :)
