I’ve been reading books on baking like crazy lately. I had recently read that you can whip egg whites up the best in a copper bowl. I think a copper bowl is mighty pretty too but am not about to pay full price for one either. So, the other day I was looking in a antique shop and saw this pretty, copper bowl for $10. I put my pears in it when I got home and still have yet to try whipping up the egg whites in it just yet. I may not polish it either as I think it looks pretty neat just as it is.
