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.
