With the use of these items: an almond, a wired, tin foil filled with water, and matches, it is possible to boil water and cook over an almond. A wire is needed to tie around the almond so the almond is above your work area. Then, light the almond on fire using the matches. Hold the tin foil filled with water above the burning almond for a minute or so and the water should begin to boil. It is also possible to use a tin pan and cook items such as a mini pancake. The almond will burn for about three minutes so cooking smaller items would be easiest.
