A haybox is simply an insulated container that allows you to continue cooking your food while conserving precious fuel. Ruth Goodman explains it better than I do, so watch the following video. The haybox is introduced near 27:00 and the end result is shown at about 36:00.
(These videos keep appearing and disappearing off YouTube. If the video isn't functioning, search for Wartime Farm, episode 2.)
Simple but effective, right? If you don't have a lot of hay hanging around your house, you might prefer to make the city-slicker cousin to the haybox, a "wonder box oven".
The gals at Food Storage Made Easy also put together a pdf that shows how to make your own Wonder Box.
Have any of you tried using a haybox and/or wonder box oven? What did you think of the technique?
