Zero Energy Cooking: Rocket Stove Plus Retained Heat Cooking — 4 Comments

  1. I am no longer positive where you’re getting your info, however great topic. I needs to spend a while studying more or working out more. Thanks for magnificent info I used to be in search of this info for my mission.

    • I provide links to my sources. Take a look. In this case, both concepts are thoroughly proven. I’m just pointing out how these techniques can be combined.

  2. for beans, you want at least 10 minutes after it starts boiling in order to break down the pytic acid.

    also, in my personal experience, i found beans to be a little too hard with boiling once and leaving in the haybox. so, after the first hour in the haybox, i take it out and bring it to a boil a second time, then put it back in the haybox for another couple hours. that gives me the right softer texture for the beans.

    aside from fuel savings, it also saves worry. once in the haybox, the pot can’t boil over. if you forget it for a extra hour, it doesn’t hurt anything. ie, i don’t do it primarily for the energy savings, i do it because it’s easier!

    • Thanks for that tip about reboiling the beans, I’ve been trying for ages to get my beans soft enough and leaving longer in the hay box didn’t seem to make any difference. Going to try this hint for sure. I always cook rice in the hay box it comes out just right overnight. Great blog!
