I have scads of copper molds and copper wares to add to the shop yet so please check back if you don't see what you are looking for.

 

  • One of the famous Dead Sea Scrolls found in Israel is made of copper instead of fragile animal skins. The scroll contains clues to a still undiscovered treasure.
  • Archeologists have recovered a portion of a water plumbing system from the Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt. After 5,000 years, the copper tubing was still in serviceable condition.
  • A copper frying pan at the University of Pennsylvania's museum has been dated to be more than 50 centuries old.
  • When Columbus sailed to America, his ships (Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria) had copper skins below the water line. The copper sheathing extended hull life and protected against barnacles and other types of biofouling. Today, most seagoing vessels use a copper-based paint for hull protection
  • Archaeological evidence indicates that copper was used as far back as 10,000 years ago in western Asia.

Copper is a natural element essential to all plant, human and animal life, it is necessary for good health. It helps humans maintain a healthy heart, liver, brain and it needed for good bone development. Humans get copper in foods they eat such as chocolate, milk, nuts, seeds, chickpeas and oysters.

Copper also makes the best cookware due to its conductance of heat and it is beautiful to look at. Actually, the older it gets the prettier it becomes.

Unlined copper molds ARE safe to use. The food product is not kept in it for a long enough period of time to cause any problems. And what problems could occur? COPPER IS GOOD FOR YOU IN SMALL QUANTITIES, see the above paragraphs. Unlined copper pots are used in some of the best French kitchens and unlined copper is perfect for heating chocolate.

CLEANING:
Clean the inside of your copper cookware with a soft cloth or sponge and a mild dishwashing liquid. Abrasives and metal scrubbers should not be used as they will prematurely wear the tin lining. It is recommended that you DO NOT use the dishwasher for your copper ware. If you have trouble removing some stubborn, cooked on food, try deglazing (over a low heat pour liquid in the pan and stir with a wood spoon to dislodge the food bits stuck to the bottom) the pan over low to moderate heat using plain water. If your food is sticking, try using a lower heat. One of the beauties of copper is that you can cook at much lower temperatures.

POLISHING:
While polishing your copper cookware will help to maintain its gleaming shine, it is absolutely not necessary in regards to its performance. The lovely patina that copper takes on over time reflects its durability and its use. If you prefer the shiny appearance of new copper, it is recommended that you polish it with a good commercial product such a E-Z Way Metal Cleaner. This seems to be the easiest product to use and gives the best results. You may also use a homemade mixture of 1 cup coarse salt, 1 cup white vinegar, and enough cornmeal to form a paste. Wipe the mixture on the copper and rub lightly. Remove the excess paste under running water and dry with a clean cloth. Use the above very carefully as it could scratch your copper piece. *** If there is a lacquer coating on your copper it will streak and spot when you do this, only elbow grease and a good metal cleaner will get the lacquer coating off of copper.

To extend the life of the tin lining of your copper cookware try to avoid using metal cooking utensils instead use wooden or plastic utensils. The new silicone utensils are also excellent to use with your old or new copper cookware.

Sometimes age, wear and tear take their toll on cookware especially copper cookware and it needs to be retinned. This is a good source for retinning of copper and other metals - http://www.retinning.com/

I personally adore copper and think that it lends an old world look to my environment. I especially love to use it outdoors. I have found the following recipe a great way to hasten the "aging process" of the copper. For a quickie copper patina mix together: 1 cup of vinegar, 2 -4 Tbsp. of salt and 1/4 cup of ammonia. With gloves on your hands, dip a rag in this mixture and liberally rub on your copper piece, repeat as needed until desired patina is achieved.

Recipes:

1 lb. can (2 c.) purple plums
