I vaguely remember reading something about 'rule of thumb' originating with brewers as a means of quesstimating temperature before thermometers.
On the Brew Masters show, Sam Calagione says "Rule of Thumb" came from the brewers using their thumbs to test temperatures. I don't quite buy it, but it's okay as an explanation.
we're thinking about priming with pure rosemary honey instead of sugar, but I don't know. how does it work with honey?
How to heat them? In what type of vessel?
Well, since she's a Princess, The Queen Mary might be a suitable vessel...but I'm not sure they'll let you use a electric potpourri pot on board.
A friend of mine said that electric potpourri burners work well for melting the wax. I haven't tried it yet but I figure it would be worth a shot.
