Boiling water in a plastic bag?!

Question: Boiling water in a plastic bag!?
Is it possible to bring water in a very thin plastic bag to boiling point on smouldering coals!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I suppose you could come close BEFORE it melted but as a guess I'd say NO!Www@FoodAQ@Com

No dude!. Cmon!. and btw, you should be cautious of heating edibles in plastic bc they often leach toxins into the food!.

Come to think of it, the type of plastic used in plastic bags probably have a lower melting point than the boiling point of water so the bag would melt before the water boils!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

The coals would melt the plastic on contact!. You can cook an egg in an orange peel!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, the bag would melt!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
