On the way to Glin last Sunday we stopped at a carboot sale. I spotted this rather tarnished brass jam pan. I asked the seller how much? They said: "Ten Euros!" My hand went in my wallet like a ferret down a rabbit hole.
I walked in from the garden the other day and the missus said:
"I have summat to show you!"
She had only gone and polished the brass jam and placed some plastic flowers in it! All praise to your elbow grease and using ones initiative.
It now sits proudly in between the range and television and my old kettles.
Apparently brass jam pans are better than other metal pans for cooking jam. They don't blacken the fruit and don't leave a metallic taste. Don't think we'll be using it for cooking though!
