Just an attempt to adjust the time it takes to get a soapstone vessel to the boil. This time I am just boiling the same soapstone vessel as I did yesterday in order to clean it from any residues
Liquid used: 4 litres
10:21 The pot is hung above – or rather on – the fire.
Due to some heavy smoke emanating from under the pot, it was raised two links on the chain it was hanging from in order to allow some air to pass under it.
10:28 some steam forming on the surface, and the water is a bit more than luke warm
10:38 Heavy steam billowing from the surface
Fat and remains starts floating to the surface. The water is now very hot to the touch
Time taken: 22 minutes.
