Grandma had a silver one like that one on the bottom row.
Had? If she still owns it run over and whisper a few sweet and kind words and bring it home. Thanks, my friend.
I'm partial to plain boiling: strain it through your bandanna. But I agree perking is good procedure. :)
Darn fine method, Jim, but my bandanna isn't clean so I'll just stick with a paper filter. I've used the cowboy method of boiling the grounds over an open campfire many times. It makes for a tasty cup of coffee, and chewy too. Thanks, my friend.
My mom still has an old percolator in a kitchen cabinet, and I have a granite-ware version with my camping supplies. Still tastes best.
I own several Coring Ware Cornflower percolators, two different sizes if I remember correctly. I use mine of whenever possible...just because. How's the weather? Sixty-five here.
Still have my Corning Ware cornflower coffee pot. And you are so right - nothing like the aroma of coffee perking in the morning! Makes the whole day better. Now run out to the coop and get some fresh eggs.....
Eight minutes at full perk, then slack off on the flame and allow it to settle....best coffee in town. Thanks, my sweet friend.
I have a stove top version as my 'backup'... And it DOES make good coffee!
Move towards the front....takes time but it's worth the effort. Thanks, my good friend.
Best coffee I've had is cowboy style, coffee dumped into boiling water. Being somewhat effete, I like to pur it through a strainer rather than straining the grounds with my teeth.
Yep, we have a stovetop Corningware cornflower pot, too. We use it when the power goes out on our single burner butane burner.
What was it Gump said, "You're a smart lady." Do you write a blog? If not, please do so.
That makes me think of some old commercials. They would be in black and white and come on while we watched Chet Huntley and David Brinkley.
I miss those old news programs and the men...what a changed world.
I still have a coffee percolator on my gas stove. These days I use it mostly to boil water for instant.
Hey, Harry, nice to see you are among the living...there were reports. Tell 'ya what...take a chance and pour real coffee in the pot and you'll have a much improved beverage. Trust me. Thanks, my friend.
Amen! My favorite coffee pot is a stove top percolator. Perfect for the wood cookstove (and the very best coffee ever).
You have wonderful taste, Leigh....and class.
I have two peculators and have to agree, perc'd is bestest! Mine are electric but I have one stashed for TEOTWAWKI that goes over a fire ;)
Smart, Kellie....always have a backup. Thanks, my sweet friend.
OK .. now you're talkin' My daily brew is made in my beautiful 1960's era 10 cup glass Pyrex percolator. I'm teaching my daughter how to listen for the gentle simmer/perk .. then turn it on low and wait until it smells perfect. It's an art. My husband is forbidden to touch it as he broke the glass stem on my 8 cup version! ;)
Wish I had a nice Pyrex. I always keep my eyes peeled for one. Own a couple of the Corning, one old Revere Ware copper bottom. I do enjoy my perked coffee.
