15 Non Electric Thermal Slow Cooker Recipes You Have to Try!

I like to stream videos while I work on a sewing project and have recently fell head first into the BBC Victorian Farm series. It is about three historians who live and run a historical farm as farmers would have during the Victorian era.  Since the presenters are professional historians there isn’t any manufactured reality show drama or taking any modern shortcuts. Often they try something in real life that they studied from artifacts and books, like cooking dinner in a non electric hay box slow cooker.

Which reminded me that the decorative pillow on the guest bed in my sewing room is how I store my Wonderbag thermal slow cooker. (I’m always thinking about my amazing readers like you and that's why I share ideas like these. When you get this goodie, I might get a few coins thrown my way that keeps me supplied with enough coffee and household electricity to keep bringing YOU free ideas like this every week. Thank you for your support!)

In storm and hurricane ravaged areas non electric slow cookers can be a welcome and needed way to conserve camp stove fuel while you are waiting for the electrify to come back on. 

Fortunately I haven’t had to use my thermal cooking pot to cook like that. I usually use it to start a meal and allow it to cook during a road trip or event so I have a hot and allergy safe meal waiting for me in the trunk of my car when we are done.

 (If you plan on using a thermal slow cooker this way, I suggest you use a thermal cooking pot that comes with an internal cooking pot that seals for travel like the  Thermos Shuttle Chef Vacuum Thermo Pot,. Otherwise you'll' have to get creative with bungee cords to keep the lid on your own cooking pot while it bounces around in the car in a hay box style cooker like I do.)

15 of the Best Non Electric Hay Box, Wonderbag, and Thermal Slow Cooker Recipes for Lazy Budget Chefs

I was poking around for new hay box thermal cooking recipes for tailgating season, and with Hurricane Harvey and Irma also on my mind though I’d share the recipes I found with you in case you are in need of recipe ideas that don’t require electricity to make.
