- Nonflammable container (such as a ceramic or terra-cotta flower pot)
- Pebbles (enough to fill container)
- Can of Sterno
- 1 tsp. salt
- Fill container about halfway with pebbles. Open can of Sterno and center on pebbles, so it is level and top of can is flush with top of container.
- Add more pebbles around Sterno, filling container to top. Light Sterno, then carefully add a teaspoon of salt to the can to make the flame more yellow.
NOTE: To extinguish a Sterno, always place the lid on it. Don’t try blowing out the flame.
