S1 Ep7: The Health Benefits of Solar Cooking
Solar cooking has all sorts of surprising health benefits. In this episode Scott and Patrick discuss just a few of them:
- Solar cooking preserves more of the naturally-occurring nutrients of food by cooking at slower and lower temperatures.
- There's almost no air movement in a solar cooker, allowing the food to stay moist, tender, and flavorful.
- Sun-baked roasts are tastier and more succulent, and sunbaked bread has unparalleled taste and texture.
- Temperatures in a solar oven rise slowly and evenly, allowing complex carbohydrates time to break down into simple sugars, emanating subtle natural flavors.
