“My aunt made the most beautiful cherry pie and read us story books.”
“She bakes bread and it never sees the next day. It all gets eaten up the same day.”
“I remember my mother making cinnamon rolls every Saturday night.”
“She is making leche cortada (carmelized cheese curds) for sale. To make this candy, you have to stir and add things frequently. She has figured out a way to make it in the solar oven!”
Whether they live in the Dakotas; Four Corners, Colorado; Makeni, Sierra Leone; or Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic, women (and men, too) nurture their families and neighbors with lovingly prepared food—and more! They solve problems, teach lessons, and stretch resources.
Who are the nurturing women in your life that you want to thank or remember with an exceptional gift this Mothers Day?
Our mothers—and other women in our lives—have encouraged us to put love into action. Honor these women, or their memories, by providing utensils for solar ovens built, equipped and delivered by Solar Oven Partners (SOP) volunteers. Your gifts ensure that every solar oven distributed in our seminars is equipped to cook, bake, and pasteurize water or milk.
This Mothers Day, your financial gifts will buy pans and utensils for a solar cook. We will notify the person you wish to honor about this practical, heart-warming gift. Download the flyer at the link and follow these easy directions.
Here’s the “recipe” for a well-equipped solar oven:
• three 4-quart black enamel pans that hold heat and speed cooking
• reflective bread pan with black cloth to facilitate absorbing of heat
• measuring cups and spoons and oven thermometer
• WAPI-water pasteurization indicator-a lifesaver for babies and vulnerable elders
• pot holders made by SOP volunteers and a cookbook based on foods from each area where SOP teams help build ovens and present seminars
$30 equips one oven, $150 equips a box of 5 ovens. With your gift, share some of these facts about the impact of Solar Oven Partners:
Solar Oven Partners thanks our financial partners and workshop volunteers for their support all year long. Rejoice with us in the sun’s blessing. It’s “a recipe” for love in action.
