2 Cups Fresh Water
1- Two Quart Pot
1 Box Band Aides
1 Tube of Burn Cream
Directions for cooking and first aid:
Pour water into pot. Turn burner on high. I suggest that you use the back burner. Set the potted water on the back burner. Be sure that you set the potted water on the burner that you lit or turned on, otherwise your water probably will not boil. IMPORTANT!!!! Be sure to put the water in the pot first! It is hard to collect the water from the stove top without a pot. Once your potted water begins to steam a bit, test it with your non writing index finger, or any other less desireable and useless appendage. If it burns the crap outta you, your water is near boiling. Apply burn cream to the blister at the tip of your finger or other said appendages, and wrap with band aides. After the water begins to bubble your boiled water is done. Salt to taste and enjoy. You can freeze your boiled water to enjoy at a later day just repeat the above steps.
You can burn your boiled water if you aren't careful. If your water catches fire like mine did when I was experimenting with this recipe, simply add more water. Poof, the fire is extinguished.
Warning: Those aren't fun bubbles. They are hot!! Do not attempt to play with boiled bubbles. Please stay tuned for my fabulous ice recipe and other water ideas.
Warning: Do not use bottled water, the plastic melts and ruins the entire recipe!
Left over boiled water can be enjoyed later as a refreshing glass of water. Believe it or not the pets enjoy left over boiled water as well. There many uses for left over boiled water. After much research I have found that adding left over boiled water to laundry soap actually cleans my clothes ten times better than without. I am off to try some left over boiled water and soap on my skin in the tub! I expect the same result with leftover boiled water and soap as with the laundry experiment.
