You either love or hate anchovies - a bit like Marmite I suppose. I'm a bit partial to anchovies on toast, and after removing the anchovy fillets from my tin of Sainsburys anchovies in olive oil with garlic and herbs thought I saw an opportunity for an oil lamp.
So, I cut a piece of jute twine, put it in the anchovy oil left in the tin, and lit it.
I can now confirm two things:
1. It works very well as a small lamp, and
2. Don't do this in the kitchen when the wife is around.................
