Or is it an Ina Garten recipe?

Charcoal and fire starter

When you have taken every kernel, and bit of corn off of that wonderful cob that's in front of you, set the cob somewhere to dry. Inf fact, do it with several cons. After a few days have elapsed, cut those cons into little half-inch discks. Melt some paraffin in a disposable aluminum pan, that you can get from the store for a buck or so. drop the cob discs into the melted was and let them absorb the molten fire starter. Remove and place on parchment paper to cool. You now have little paraffin impregnated discs that will burn long enough to start the charcoal, or a good campfire.

Spread the cheer.

I here from all kinds of people that no one knoes how to cook anymore
I run into young people all the time who want to know how. Well, I know a place where they can learn. I steer them to DC. Sadly, only a very few ever access this resource.

I now have a young man who I am mentoring. Though his mother knows how to cook, the twenty-something has learned little from her. He has turned to me as a freind to learn things, like how to build a custom fishing rod, or how to tie flies. Culinarily, so far I have taught him to spatccock, roast, and carve a turkey, make potato pancakes, how to make gravy from a roux, how to prepare and mash potatoes so that they are creamy and fluffy, how to make chili-dog cjili, thickened with orange lentils, and what herbs and spices to use, and hot to make the best french fries. We even made calzonrs together, though I haven't introduced him to making bread dough yet.

This I do for multiple reasons. He is my freind. I am his freind and mentor. I get the joy of both having a good freind, and doing something for another.

If you can find someone, be it a grandchild, a niece or nephew, the kid down the street, or anyone to mentor, and befreind, it will chage both of your lives for the better.
