A cold day requires a hot snack and Lidl’s finest broccoli and stilton soup delivered a gloopy hit of cheesy goodness.    This fire was the first time I had occasion to use my new firesteel:


The firesteel striker generates a volley of sparks and the knack is to catch the sparks on cotton wool (or similar material) and nurse the flame until it reaches the kindling.

Proper preppers value firesteels as they can ignite even in wet weather.
