Verve Hot Chocolate Jug

$79.95

Today, Verve is a women-run business spanning three generational groups that are committed to offering an inside view of how certain tools and tastes can create memorable experiences with friends and family. Beautiful, purposeful, authentic and respectful of the people who make the items, is at the heart of their philosophy. They believe that exposure to new cultures and experiences brings joy.

The best way to make Mexican Hot Chocolate is with clay cookware – a Mexican Kitchen’s staple. Passed down by the Aztecs, it’s still preferred for the unique flavor it lends to food. This handcrafted jug is made with ancient hand-molding techniques from the past, and finished with new techniques (and a lead-free glaze, of course) to be both functional and decorative.

This jug can be used directly over heat (a flame or electric range) – just add milk and chocolate, or it can also be used to heat teas, soups, and coffee.

And can we talk about its triple functionality as a vase or decoration? You’ll be impressed.

Care:
The hot chocolate jug gets better with time and care. It needs to be cured, but it’s worth it. To cure it, fill with cool water below its rim and heat until the water becomes warm for 10 minutes on the stove. Turn off the heat, and allow the water and pot to cool. Discard the water, and your clay pot is ready to use.
Note: *This jug is a cooking vessel, and not recommended as a water pitcher as the terracotta clay will sweat. The condensation that collects on the outside is normal, and does not imply that the jug is leaking.

*Lead Free*
