Have you noticed how many recipes seem to be popping up on your facebook newsfeed lately? I see new recipes being shared all the time from one source or another. I saw this experiment last week, but I have no clue which friend shared it or what the source was. If I knew, I would be sure to post it.
Anyway, it looked easy and fun to try, so today I made an orange/coconut oil lamp! Any citrus fruit can be used with any kitchen oil. I used coconut oil with half an orange.
Use a citrus half that has a definite core showing in the center.
Pour your choice of oil into the citrus half. Light the core for a miniature oil lamp! Since the core is damp, it may take several tries to get it to stay lit. I think I used about 4 matches before it finally took hold.
