[SunTaste] Solar recipe: cooking eggs

Cuire des oeufs avec un four solaire

Cooking eggs with a solar oven

From spring to autumn, when temperatures reach 25-35°C, boite solar furnaces generally reach temperatures close to 100°C, reproducing heat almost equivalent to boiling water. This makes it easy to cook eggs, potatoes, rice and semolina.

Recipe suggested by : Linda Louis – Solar oven : box type, SunTaste – Preparation time : 5 mn – Cooking time : 10 mn – 1h30

Perfect eggs, soft or hard-boiled

Place the whole eggs in a black metal casserole dish, without water. Don’t be surprised if they take longer to cook than in water. Water is a better conductor of heat than air, and cooks faster than air. Boiling water on the skin will always be more painful than a hand in a 100°C oven…

Autumn/winter (full sun, no wind, outside temperature between 10 and 14°C).

Recipe Oven temperature Cooking time (once temperature has been reached)
Perfect or poached eggs 60-70°C 1h
Soft-boiled eggs 60-70°C 1h30
Hard-boiled eggs 60-70°C 2h

In spring (full sun, no wind, outside temperature between 18 and 25°C).

Recipe Oven temperature Cooking time (once temperature has been reached)
Perfect or poached eggs 90-100°C 15 mn
Soft-boiled eggs 90-100°C 23 mn
Hard-boiled eggs 90-100°C 30 min.

Summer (full sun, no wind, outside temperature between 25 and 40°C)

Recipe Oven temperature Cooking time (once temperature has been reached)
Perfect or poached eggs 110-130°C 10 mn
Soft-boiled eggs 110-130°C 18 mn
Hard-boiled eggs 110-130°C 23 mn
