How to make a long-burning candle from an apple and some cooking oil. You will need an apple, vegetable or olive oil, some string/wick and a knife. Using these items we can make a nifty Christmas candle or an emergency candle for a power outage.
Pick yourself out a fine looking apple, and slowly cut a circle or square around the stem.
Unfortunately, you can’t use the apple stem as a wick, it just won’t stay lit.. so grab string or a wick.
Grab yourself some vegetable oil and pour it directly over the wick to fill up the apple. Make sure to leave some of the wick above the oil line or this simply won’t work at all.
Once the wick and oil are in place, get out a lighter and spark it up. If you did it right, it should stay lit for at least a couple hours depending on how much oil you have in inside.
A cool side note is that adding Lime Juice to the exposed apple will keep it looking fresh and prevent browning on the surface.
