candy thermometer

After a second glass candy thermometer cracked, I did some research. Our friendly neighbourhood postman delivered a brass one this morning, my sweetheart had sent for it. I’m ever so pleased.

It’s awfully strong and handsome, the lettering is engraved so it will never wear away, and the brass bends round in such a way that the delicate center is protected even if you dropped the thing. Living here with lots of marble and tile, and a ceramic sink, that’s a distinct possibility. I haven’t tested it yet, we’ll see how gracefully it hooks over a wooden spoon to suspend in a pot. Sturdy and accurate, thank you very much! I’ll be putting it to work making cheese, yogurt, and preserves. Vital device!
