Next-Level Jam

June 6, 2012

next level jam making

Look at that! Is that the most beautiful pan you have ever seen? Well, maybe not for you, but it certainly is the most beautiful pan I have ever seen.  My dear husband, who I refer to as Mr. Darla, often brings home nice surprises. Yesterday he came home with THIS! I knew he liked my fruit jams, and I knew he was proud of my efforts to learn as much as possible about cooking- but WOW! This is full out kitchen jewelry!  (if you know me- you know I likey the sparkles!) And I love new kitchen stuff. This friends is a Mauviel jam pan. It’s the preferred way to cook jams and jellies; the copper material and large shallow size allows the fruit to come up to temperature quickly without overcooking. I am thrilled! I can’t wait to make my next batch of jam- in high style!

    I’m jealous – I wish my husband thought to get me gifts like this but he thinks we have enough stuff for the kitchen already 🙂

    That pan looks almost too pretty to cook in… kitchen bling indeed!

    Is making jam hard to learn? I would learn if my honey bought me a pan like that!

      jam is easy, canning it it a bit more work. but worthwhile. i’m pretty excited about this beauty.and i too am a bit apprehensive to “dirty” it up!
