Victorian jam pan
A number of readers and viewers of my videos have commented recently to me about my jam pan. So why should a pan be such a point of interest for a conversation? Well, it's because it is made of aluminium and some people have raised issues about the affect on health of this metal. So, in the pursuit of a healthy lifestyle, I have borrowed from Dad the jam pan with which I was taught to make jam. It is made of brass and is Victorian. My great grandmother Jessie Wallace was the first to use it over 120 years ago and it's been in the family every since. Tonight I used it to make beetroot relish (more on that later).
