A video that filmed a group of scientists cooking hot dogs on larva from the volcanic eruption in Iceland went viral. The surrounding scene looked breath-taking.

Recently, a volcano at Mount Fagradalsfjall in Iceland has erupted for the first time in 800 years. The eruption results in over 300,000 cubic meters of lava and scientists who are doing research here made use of the hardening part to prepare their meals.

To be specific, a group of researchers has filmed themselves having lunch on the mountain. They place the bread on foil paper and put it on the hardening lava. Then, they cook hot dogs directly on the lava which can be seen burning inside.

It might look like cold rock but the lava is so hot that it can burn our skin.

Within some seconds, the hot dogs are ready to serve. Everyone in the group seems to be excited about this cooking method as it needs no equipment.

Having said that, people are not recommended to mimic this way because the temperature of lava might burn your hand. All the researchers in the video are wearing their protective overalls.

Other than the fun video of cooking hot dogs on lava, the scientists also upload many videos of the surrounding scenes at the mountain.

The panorama of the eruption is breath-taking with flows of orange fire which are glowing against the rock. Many visitors have come to see the once-in-a-blue-moon scenery but the authority closed the spot earlier this week due to safety reasons.

In fact, the Icelandic people are not strange to this though it is the first eruption of Fagradalsfjall. The country records about 50,000 earthquakes recently which raises concern over a massive change in the territory.

Unique cooking methods in extreme weather

In recent years, more extreme weather conditions are recorded across the world. In the US and Australia, there are times when the temperature outside reaches 120 degrees.

Many people tried to fry eggs on the street. For example, a man fried an egg on a manhole cover which was 162.5 degrees on its surface. It took around 10 minutes to complete the cooking.
