Here is one more tip for woodstove users. I needed to defrost some frozen food and recently used my woodstove. Here is a photo of my frozen container which I placed into a pan with water on the woodstove.
My fire in the woodstove was burning low so I used the front lower level on the woodstove. If your fire is burning hot, use the back shelf and watch your pan closely. As my frozen container was plastic, you do need to pay close attention that the plastic doesn’t get too hot. Watch your water too so it doesn’t boil down which could cause the plastic to get too hot also.
I hope you find this useful idea of defrosting on a woodstove a good alternative to defrosting in a microwave or on a conventional stovetop. It sames energy and is a handy way to defrost food.
