Cleaning your Copper Jam Pot

I love my copper jam pot for so many reasons. First off, it is gorgeous. Yes, that is right. I just called a pot gorgeous. Secondly, it conducts heat beautifully so it makes lovely jam full of flavour with a smooth consistency and lastly it is EASY to clean. No expensive special cleaners required.

Copper can get a beautiful patina, but I like the inside of my pot to be nice and fresh looking.

As you can see it had been a while since I had given my pot a proper cleaning so it was developing a patina along the edge. All you need is a slice of fresh lemon and a pinch of salt. Scrub the pot with the lemon and salt, adding more salt as required until the pot shines like new.
