Boiling water on a Hearthstone stove


Usually, I can’t get water to actually boil on the stove – but I found if I stoke the fire and get a full load of wood crackling, I can actually get a full, rolling boil on the soapstone stove.

Fwiw, I’ve also found that a lot of the cooking I do doesn’t actually need boiling temps.

    I love cooking with wood! I’ve been cooking dinner inside my wood burning fireplace insert. I started with boneless chicken breast and pork chops. and moved on to vegetables and potatoes. My best effort (I’m writing my own blog post on it) was roasting a whole chicken. It was the best chicken I’ve ever had.
