MrsK, let us know how you find the tallow candles. I was threatening to make some here some time back, but as I had just rendered down a heap for soap making, the family just about had a fit at the thought of more rendering. Have made bees wax candle a number of times, but the tallow interests me. Maybe a little olive oil, might soften it a bit too.
On the Grandson thought, I was punching down the cap on a mead the other day, and my GD who is two wanted to have a look and help. So I showed her what I was doing, and of course she wanted to take over, so I let her stir. Well next day my youngest son wants to get in the action too. Can't miss out on all the fun. Well Lydia would have none of him helping, gripping the stirrer while pushing John out of the way, she yells at him, "I make. I make, not you!" lol
Not sure what she is going to do when she find out she can't have any.
