Solar Cooking: Reheating Rice

Today I discovered how simple and perfect solar cooking is for reheating already cooked rice. We consume an enormous amount of rice in our household. We cook a good-sized pot of it for a meal and then store the left-overs in the refrigerator so there’s usually cold rice in there. We’re fairly skillful at reheating it in the microwave but I thought I’d give the solar cooker the job today and it performed marvelously.

I put 3 cups of rice in the pan and added 1/3 cup of water. The lid went on and the pot went into the solar cooker. Five hours later, when a rare treat– venison steaks– were coming off the grill, the tender, fluffy rice was ready to accompany our meal. Again, minimal effort with wonderful results– all while saving energy.
