    How do they start a fire, do they put out a lot of heat?

    Is it the battery that is a risk to catching fire? If so what's a better one to use, I presume duracell don't do anything as powerful.

    That little USB charger looks great, I have several things I could plug that in to including a stove.

    It's the heat generated from the light beam. Some brag about cooking a egg on the torch glass.
    Try flashlight reviews if interested in buying yourself a torch or visit a forum or three.

    Just been looking on YouTube at led torches starting fires and I found an interesting hack(can you start a fire with a sandwich bag ?), It worth a watch.

    My mate set fire to the window curtains when she left a crystal out. I like the torch idea because it can be used indoors or at night.

    I'm having a change of thought. All this planning to survive. Prepping for the what if's. At the back of my mind I know I'm unsettled and the long forecast for my retiring years isn't confirmed. So Im thinking of setting myself a challenge, to learn and practice free gardening, foraging from nature. Compiling knowledge of plant and nutrient harvesting on the move. There's plenty of resources available to practice this during the good times. (Peaceful times) plenty of active groups to share the experience with. Combining medicinal uses, alongside food preparation, in a nutshell, bush crafting. It maybe time to leave the hippies behind and invest my time with another forum I've been a member of.

    He didn't really say what they taste like,I think if I find a young fresh looking one I'll try it he ate his raw but from a coastal site and said their better when not exposed to salt, maybe cooked a bit like spinach?

    Because I Eat Many Flowers .Weeds Etc And Because Of My Raising I Know Of This "Curly Edge Dock Plant " You Be Speaking Off . But We Call It "Yellow Root" Simply Because Of Its Yellow Root..

    Firstly I Will Say That It Be Best To Eat "Young" When Its Say About 3 Inches Long ...As Then It Tastes Sort Of Lemoney And Is Great To Make Tea Or Sprinkle On Salads Or Just Simple Use As Vegetable...
    The Older Bigger Leafs Are Yuckkky E

    ...
    And Not Only Do The Bigger Old Leafs Be Bitter They Also Are Full Of A Bad Toxin (Acid) I Think Thats What You Call It (Acid) ...But Yes If You Boil It The Bad Toxin Acid Stuff Goes ..But We Do Not Ever Be Eating Old Big Dock Leaf (Yellow Root) Anyway As We Only Eat The Yummy Young Ones.

    Also We Use The Yellow Root (Curley Dock ) "ROOTS" Itself ...And Not Just The Leafs.
    For Teas And Healing ...
    We Use The Yellow Root Dry Or Make It Into Powder And Polstices Too..
    It Is A Great Laxative And Is Great When You Add Apple Cider Vinegar For "Body Booster" ..You Call It "Tonics"
    As It Packed With Iron..So Very Good For What We Call "Sick Blood" .I Think You Call It "Anemia" And Also A Great Healer Of Coughs Too And Good For Getting Bad Things Out Of The Body Like Bad Air Car Fumes...And Heavy Metals Which Be Important To Us To Not Have Metals In Our Bodies And In And On Our Skin.

    We Also Make Polstices..With The Yellow Root In Powder Look .....As It Heals Skin Rashes...And Skin Sores ...Also Mixed It Be Very Good To Soothe And Help Muscle Bone Pain I Think You Call That "Rhuemy Of The Bone/Body) hahahahahaha.

    So I Be Hoping This Has Help You A Little As To Best Way To Eat And Use The "Yellow Root Plant/Weed" ....And The Best Way We Use It Both The Leaf And Root....And Also Keep Farm Animals Away From It Too As It Be Making Them Very Very Sickly

    It's not sorrel though. It does have it's fair share of nutrition.
