PORK AND BEANS
1 can Campbell’s
pork and beans
Bake in preheated
SUN OVEN® at 325-340º for about one hour. Leave in oven at 200º

We use a bread machine
to do all the work. Just before it starts to bake, remove the dough to
a greased loaf pan and place in the microwave oven with 2 cups of hot
water. Dough should double in size in about 35 minutes. Remove to your
325º SUN OVEN® and bake for approx. 45 minutes. For a better
crust, brush loaf top with salt water 5 minutes before done. Test for
doneness by tapping the loaf; if it sounds hollow, the bread is done.
Mix first three ingredients
with enough buttermilk to get the right consistency. Bake in preheated
SUN OVEN® at 325º for approx. 70 minutes or until done.
For this recipe, we
use our 4-quart cast iron pot. Place bacon slices in pot and cook at 325º.
When bacon is done, remove and sauté onions in bacon drippings
until tender. Add meat, stir and cook until gray in color. Chop bacon
into small pieces and return to mixture; add remaining ingredients. Simmer
about 40 minutes until flavors are well blended.
Place ingredients in 1-quart dark pot with lid in 250-275º SUN OVEN® for 1 hour.
EXAMPLES OF COOKING TIMES & TEMPERATURES
Bowl of soup: 45 minutes
All cooking times are approximate!
Clouds: We don’t worry too much about clouds; if we have to, we move indoors and finish the meal. The exception is baked goods such as bread. We wait until we are sure of enough time to complete the baking before using the SUN OVEN®.
When you become comfortable
with your SUN OVEN®, you will have as much fun as we did. We are purists,
and did all the cooking in the SUN OVEN®. You can shorten preparation
time by sautéing the onions and frying the bacon on your stove,
but who wants to do that? Charlie doesn’t!
