MOM Tip: Make an Emergency Candle out of Crisco

criscoMOM Tip: Here’s something to add to your emergency preparedness kit.

Get a Large can of Crisco (the larger the better).

Get a few Wicks (need to be longer than height of can, cut to match)

Insert the candle wick into the center of the can of Crisco. If the can has a large diameter, multiple wicks can be inserted. Leave a quarter of an inch of wick showing above the Crisco to make sure the flame is a manageable size.

Even out the top of the Crisco so the candle is smooth.

Light the Wick. Voila ~ you have an emergency candle.
