Re: Solar cooking

I have window screen type racks clip to the deck head over the oil stove. Cruising up the coast doesn't allow much solar drying but berries ,apples and plums are everywhere. So. I even dried kiwi fruit, mango and pineapple in the Beaufort The stove was on all the time and the fruit compliments of Dome Petroleum. Inuit 'dry fish ' is easy. Scale and fillet skin on and angled parallel slices 1/2 inch or so through flesh to skin .Hang in sun to dry. They use smoke to keep off flies but a net would work. I tried this with tuna mid Atlantic but big fish is better fresh or canned..
