Beef tallow has been used for centuries as a cooking grease as well as fuel for lanterns. Making tallow candles will give you a nice and long-burning source of light that works well in outdoor situations. While anyone can use beeswax, candle wax or even shortening to make a candle, knowing how to convert the fat of an animal into light can come in handy during a survival situation. This trick uses beef as the main ingredient, but you can use the fat from pigs, elk, deer or other large food animal as well.
