High marmite no.6
A 2.75l high half salt-glazed stoneware pot for cooking or storage - perfect for slow cooked casseroles, pot-au-feu, and hotpot. Handmade in the Northern Loire valley by Poterie Digoin in an area rich in clay and mineral deposits, but as importantly at a major junction in the French canal network, whose distribution allowed the nascent pottery to quickly establish itself at the heart of the French kitchen. The pot should be thoroughly soaked in clean water before first use. A marmite is a type of French (typically eared) casserole dish which it is supposed lent its name to the famous British spread.
