Prepping 101: The Lard Sand Candle

Screen Shot 2015-04-19 at 10.01.13 PM

This one is a variation on the sand in a can oil lamp. It’s a little more involved as you have to find a way to melt the lard if you’ve waited until the shtf before making one. To make this all you do is bury a lamp wick, piece of cloth or string made from natural materials, in a sand filled can, melt some lard, pour it in and light the wick. This type of candle will burn for a long time and some cultures in the far north like Canada and Greenland use these as cookers.
