Kindling Kit
Nothing beats cuddling up in front of a crackling fire. Martha has created her own special kindling kit that she makes at home and gives as a gift come holiday time.

To create your own, collect dried sage, orange peel, nut shells and fresh fruit wood and place everything into a sap bucket. The orange peel makes the fire smell good, and the nut shells give it the classic crackling sound. Gathered together in an old-fashioned bucket gives the gift a rustic feel. Make sure to include long matches, so the person making the fire doesn't have to get too close to the flames!
