Fungus as a tinder


In this video I talk about using fungus as a tinder and include King Alfred’s cakes, birch polypore, hoof fungus and chaga.

When ignited they create an ember and not a flame, so you might want to take a refresher at my post on tinder bundles.

Here’s the video, leave any thoughts you might have in the comments below.

We teach how to prepare and use fungus as a tinder on our 2 Day & 5 Day Bushcraft Courses, the IOL Bushcraft Competency Course and also our 2 Day & 5 Day Survival Courses.  You can see plenty of photos from all of these courses on our Facebook page.
