    A comparison of the solar ovens please? I would like to know how you think they compare to each other, since you’ve had a chance to use both. I would be really interested in your opinion — what fits in what, max temps, etc.

    I made one myself out of boxes, styrofoam, tin foil, and lots of glue but I still want a ‘real’ one, I just don’t want to buy one without making an informed decision — as informed as I can be with reading others’ experiences!

    Your meals look so delicious , you should think about putting the recipes into a cookbook to sell through the Peddler’s Wagon.
    I’m sure most of PTF followers would buy a copy , I know I would.

    Hey Everyone!

    Speaking of Solar ovens…have you all tried cannng with the Solar ovens? I canned a dozen pints of pears and a couple of tomatoes over the weekend. I got the info from the book Eleanors solar cookbook. You can only do fruits and tomatos, but it’s a pretty nice little option.
    In regards to Susan’s Question about Solar ovens. I, too have a cardboard oven that I have had and used for over 15 years!! It needs a little work to get some new foil on it, and reinforce the cardboard, but it still gets to 300 degree temps. I love it. However, the SOS Sport Oven that I bought from you guys has some great advantages. Living in Indiana, the cardboard oven can’t be used in the winter effectively. The Sport oven can be used, if you flip it around, so that the bottom during the summer becomes the back during the winter. With smaller pans, you can still cook most anything through the winter as long as the skies are clear.
    These are very well designed, and well worth the money!
    Once again…great job with everything!!!
