Candles out of Crisco
I read the other day that you could make a candle out of Crisco so I thought I would try. Crisco was originally made as a candle extender and a lubricant but this was about the time electricity came along so there wasn’t much use for candle anymore so they turned it into a food.
So first I melted the Crisco then poured into a jar with a wick let it cool and solidify. The next day I burned it, it burned for about 4 hours as you can see in the pic. not a real bight flame. I had to leave so I blew it out, the next day I relit it and it burned for about 3 to 4 hours a very dim light after a while it did go out. I think I will experiment with this a little more maybe try to add a little beeswax to see if I get a more solid candle and one that will burn a little longer and brighter I will let you know how it turns out.
