Bamboo Chicken on SIAPv6.0 and Honey Butter Cake on SIAPv9.x 80913

Today I tried to cook a traditional Badayuh dish, bamboo chicken using SIAPv6.0. A piece of approximately 1M long bamboo, with diameter about 70mm is filled with the cooking material. The cooking material consisted of 1/2KG of deborned chicken thigh meat, onion, garlic and ginger. The aperture of the bamboo tube is stuff with tapioca leaves and covered with a piece of kitchen aluminium foil and fastened with rubber bands.

SIAPv6.0 was used due to its advantage of tubular heat radiation pattern. The heat radiation pattern of SIAPv6.0 is tubular and is therefore best for cooking using a tubular cooking utensil, such as a piece of bamboo.

The whether was sunny and the cooking was started at 10:00 am. By 2:00pm, the bamboo was opened and the food was inspected. It was found that the chicken was almost cooked. It was soft but certain parts remain reddish. It is soft and smell fresh with the smell of bamboo and tapioca leaves.

To day I also tried to bake two Honey Butter Cakes using SIAPv9.1 and SIAPv9.3. The honey butter cakes consist 500GM of cake mix, butter, eggs and skimmed milk. The portion was large and it completely filled the two cooking ports.

The cooking started at 1:00pm and by 4:00pm, the cakes were cooked, though a bit soft. It was tasty and yammy

I am glad to receive two friends today. They are Hubert and Ron. Ron is from Sinagapore who happened to be here on a social visit trip. Humbert was showing Ron around and stopped over at my place to witness my solar cooking.
