Things I need:
-metal tin – willow – knife – logs – fire place
-peel the willow and cut into needed size
-put into the tin and wire shut
-place the tin into the fire and leave for over 2 hours, let fire burn out and leave tin in the fireplace till morning
-take out of the fire place and walaaa, I will have my own Charcoal!
Probably easier said than done . . .
Once I had put the tin into the fire, I had the time to relax and enjoy all of its beauty.
The next morning, I reached into the fire and pulled out something which resembled my tin, Now lacking its original perfect silver, it became dark and gritty, embedded with ash. I could barely contain my excitement!
The end product was an absolute joy!
Perfect homemade charcoal… and along with it, came the most gorgeous charcoal, deep in colour, with a magnificent natural look.
A skill I can now take with me wherever I may want to go!
