Are you a clay potter?

I have been quite the little Domesticated Pink Haired Momma in the kitchen. This has been established quite well. And I just got married. All of this is old news right? Well! A good friend of mine gave me a little gift for my wedding, that just happens to work in the kitchen. She gave me a Clay Pot.

Hmmmmm. You must be thinking "WHAT?" Well that is if you are newly domesticated like I am, or if you are not German, like I am not. Here have a little lookey for those who are like me.

Clay Pot for cooking not potting!!

At first I was a bit scared of this clay pot. I have never used a clay pot for cooking and I was a bit unsure on what to do with this new addition to my kitchen repertoire. But after a few dabbles with it in the kitchen, I am in LOVE with this clay pot. This is by far the greatest addition to my kitchen, and I didn't even know they existed.

I simply soak the pot in cold water for about 10 minutes before using. Then I load it up with some edible yummies, stick it in a cold oven, turn oven on and then walk away for a set amount of time. When I come back and remove my friend little clay pot, not only is dinner complete, it is absolutely phenomenal! Seriously, chicken falling off the bone and melting in my mouth good! I am so in love...

Chicken Napoli. The meat just fell off the bones! And that is the juice there of the chicken! I added nothing to the pot. No water, no broth, nada! The clay pot enables the food to cook nicely in its own juices. YUM!!!

A few apples, raisins, cinnamon, and a splash of rum and Voila. A delicious yummy sweet treat baked up in my little clay pot friend and served immediately with some vanilla ice cream...calorie free of course!

I must say I am now the biggest fan of clay pot cooking. It is easy, delicious, easy, yummy, easy...well you get the point. I am interested to hear if you are familiar with clay pot cooking. If so lets swap recipes and get to clay pot cooking!!!
