A great way to use up scrap wood chips, shavings and sawdust to make these easy and effective fire starters. Be sure to use paraffin wax not candle wax, as it is food grade and burns completely.
First-rate fire starters
- Pack sawdust into paper muffin cups, above, or a cardboard egg carton.
- Melt paraffin wax in a double boiler, pour over the sawdust and allow to cool.
- Slow-burning when lit, these hotcakes make great starters for a fireplace or campfire.
