French Copper Preserving Pan/Sugared Almond Pan, Wrought Iron Handles, 1800s

$560Asking Price

About

This French antique copper preserving pan with wrought iron handles was used to bake jam or other sweet food in the 1800s. The three reasons why these copper pans work so well is that it- evenly spreads the heat and, since most fruit contain pectin needed for their gelling capacities, the copper helps the pectin molecules bind together and lastly the splayed shape helps water evaporate causing the concentration of natural sugars which prevents the needed addition of too many sweeteners. If you make preserves or jams or sugared almonds this pan is a must. If you don't have a French husband who does this then it could be used as a gorgeous bowl to hold fruit or for any number of great decorative uses.
