p>Today I thought you might like to meet our copper kettle. It’s a vintage thing, and I’m rather fond of its glass handle. It holds a lot of water, into which I’ve dropped a charcoal filter and I’ve spent the day filling my tea cup from it, or adding hot water to things I’m cooking. The taste is exceptionally clear, I like it very much.
Copper is a great conductor and from what I could find out, a good element to have a decent trace of in your diet. And you know how I like shiny things. I expect it to work hard and save us its worth in electricity, while it reigns elegantly on the wood stove.
