solar crockpot: red beans (no-soak)

with ketchup and a bit of sriracha

I’ve been doing my dry beans in the pressure cooker to save fuel (30mins @ 10lbs), but cooking with excess solar uses no fuel at all. It turned out so good I’ll just stick with it.

Some salt pork or bacon scraps in there would be nice…

My mental arithmetic suggests we are trading time for water here. Either we use twice the water (2qt soak + 2qt cook vs 2qt cook) v or twice the time (3-4hrs vs 5-6hrs).
