Hot Rock Boiling

Ever wondered how to boil water in the bush without having a kettle or other similar items? Below Gordon shows hot rock boiling in a paperbark bowl. This was after collecting water from a ground sump and coarse filtering in a Milbank bag.

Close up of the improvised paperbark bowl folded to hold 1.3 litres of water. This was then boiled using hot rocks. 5-6 rocks heated on the fire which did the job.
