We propose to make an updated version of the Haybox using Nike Grind as a mechanically stable and heat insulating material.
What is a haybox?
A Haybox is a box insulated with - traditionally - hay where a preheated pot of food can simmer in its own heat.
A Haybox is an eco-friendly and stress-free way to prepare delicious food.
UKEMOCHI WorkS IN THREE SIMPLE STEPS
1. Pre-heat the pot (by conventional means).
2. Place the hot pot in the Ukemochi.
3. Place the lid and let the food simmer in its own heat.
What to prepare in the UKEMOCHI?
There are quite a few sources on how to cook fireless - one of the normative ones is Margaret J. Mitchell's Cook Book from 1909.
One great example (of many): Corned Beef for 20-25 persons after 10-12 hours in the Haybox:
UKEMOCHI: THE FOOD GODDESS
Ukemochi is the Japanese Goddess of food. The sun goddess Ameaterasu sent her brother, Tsuki, to check that Ukemochi was doing her job. While he was visiting she opened her mouth and sent out boiled rice, turned to the sea and from her mouth sent out fish and seaweed. Tsuki, for some reason, didn’t like this and killed her. From Ukemochi's head then came an ox and a horse, and from her genitals came beans! (XMen go home!).
