Slumgum is everything that is left over after melting down old honeycomb, and straining out the wax. It is mixed with my own special redneck blend of ingredients such as; sawdust, dryer lint, mineral oil and extra beeswax. A single Tablespoon placed directly on the packed snow burned for nearly 30 minutes during my initial trial. Perfect for tossing in your backpack or emergency kit. 1/2 pint jar will start dozens of fires with ease! Natural and non-toxic.
