Making Charcoal

Today we learnt from an expert how to make charcoal.
To start with you make a fire, steadily adding left-over wood remnants to it. Waiting for the wood to go black, with a white hue, then covering it in turfs, until no smoke escapes, to make sure all the heat is kept in and no oxygen can reach the fire. Leave for 2 hours, and then … Charcoal!!
