Wonder Box Cooker Recipes

Here are a few basic recipe ideas that were listed with the Wonder Box Cooker.  So far the only thing I have personally done in my Wonder Box Cooker is Chili, but it was delicious, and hours after first placing it in there, it was still scalding hot, and had to cool down quite a bit before we could eat it. These little things really do work!
Try soups, stews, what ever you can bring to a boil and then give it a try. The worst that would happen is the first time, you may have to bring things back to a boil and put it back into your Wonder Box Cooker for a second cooking time.
NOTE: Never replace a pot of half eaten or luke-warm food in the Wonder Box Cooker. It should be boiled up again to prevent it going bad.
2 cups quick oats
4 cups boiling water
salt, cinnamon, sugar to taste
Stir oats into boiling water, put lid on and place quickly between cushions of the W’box for 15 minutes or more. Stir before serving.
2 cups rice       
Put into 3 ½ - 4 cups of salted boiling water. NB. Because the water does not evaporate you may need less water than usual.
Place quickly into W’box, and leave for 40 minutes or longer until ready to eat.
Potatoes or root vegetables may be cooked in their skins. Bring them to a boil in a pot full of water and place quickly between cushions of the W’box for about twice as long as you would normally cook them. They may be left all day without overcooking and can be more easily peeled after cooking.
Try waterless cooking by using the crisp kind of bags used for cooking roasts, etc. Submerge the bag into the water and bring to a boil. The bag should be left with opening protruding out from under the lid. Place quickly into Wonder Box Cooker. 
Chicken and other joints of Meat
Place chicken into an Oven cooking bag with desired spices, and close bag
Bring pot of water with chicken in it, to a good boil.
Quickly place into the W’box and place top cushion on.
Leave alone for at least 3-4 hours.
The chicken was put in at 9:30 in the morning before church. This single dad prepared the chicken by placing it into an oven-cooking bag. He added spices to the chicken closed the bag completely (no added moisture was added to the bag) then brought the pot of water with the chicken in, to a boil and put it all in to the Wonder Box Cooker. We ate with him at 4:00pm. It was impressive.
Yogurt by the Gallon
4 cups dry skim milk powder
4 quarts warm water
Mix well, heat to scald, cool to luke warm
Add 1 cup of starter (plain commercial yogurt) or product saved from this finished recipe may be used to start a new batch. Refresh monthly with commercial starter.
Mix well, put into a gallon glass jar with a lid and place into the Wonder Box Cooker.
Leave undisturbed for 12-14 hours. It will thicken more after refrigeration.
May be used plain or add your favorite fruits to flavor.
For those that can afford the calories, if the yogurt doesn’t set to your liking, add instant Vanilla pudding, (substituting yogurt for milk.) Can be reduced for smaller batches

Happy Homemaking!
