裏山ブッシュクラフト - #06 ツリガネ茸 (#06 Tinder Fungus) Part 2

#06 ツリガネ茸のPart2です。

では#06 ツリガネ茸のPart2をどうぞ!

This time is a part 2 of #06 Tinder Fungus video.
Last time was till removing the part not needed from fungus. this time is boiling process to completing the amadou.

In the video, because of the video shooting convenience, I have boiled the fungi in my kitchen using baking soda (not baking powder). but if you are doing this in the forest, you can use large quantity of ash from fire. this works same way as soda.
Ash water mixture is useful trick to remember. you can use it to wash grease off, processing some of wild edible to soften the bitterness and so on.

so, here is the 2nd part of the amadou making. hope you enjoy!


  1. Great second part to the tutorial! Seems like a lot of work, but I'm sure it's worth it. :)


    1. it is lots of work, and point of learning, it is worth it. but for practicality, I would prefer charing. it is easier and faster on processing and lighting.

    2. Yeah, I'm also thinking it's one of those "try it once" things because of the practicality factor. :)
