10 Uses for a Stove


Remember that Truburn all-fuel stove I installed early this year? Well its been running well and keeping our house warm with coal. Actually, last week I was using it for 10 things all at the same time:

1. Heating the house

2. Heating the hot water

3. Drying the clothes hung up in the room

4. Fermenting my home brew

5. Raising the pizza dough

6. Defrosting the next day’s meat

7. Cooking a stock with beef bones

8. [cant remember this one]
9. Cooking the base of the pizza later on that evening

10 Well . . . just looking good and giving hearth to the household.

It was a little crowded but it felt good to use it economically and efficiently.
