Have you seen one of these 'grandma's oven'? It's primitive! In our village, most of them have this as they use this for heating and cooking, placed in the one room of their house, where they sleep, cook, eat and entertain visitor, to conserve energy and save money.
|This is a primitive Grandma's wood stove/oven
This year, we decided to get one for our kitchen. I think it is so cute and so 'olden'. Although we have radiators around the house for our heating, with the wood stove/oven on a very cold winter's day is just an added comfort in our kitchen area.
Saying that, I have yet to learn how to cook with grandma's stove/oven... it's not straight forward...cooking is so slow. I tried stir frying my veggies for a start...I managed, but what a slow process! Yes, grandma have more patience than me!
It's good for cooking stew...but one have to be prepared and be more organized with time. Otherwise, you'll find everyone's eyeballs rolling up in hunger waiting for the food! Forget about baking cakes...I'm not sure about that...but wait, let me try once more...I think it is possible...I just have to work it out.
Olden days did had a lot of challenges and it made them tough, with better personality...don't you think so? I'm hoping I will benefit and develop a better character with all the trials that a primitive oven brings.
We all have hope in life...so, keep aiming for a higher goal and stay happy:)
