  • Introducing the Liberty Flask: Are You Green With Envy?

    Posted on March 25, 2015


    A startling discovery was made the other day during the annual spring cleaning at the Bromwell homestead...


    An old box tucked away in a storage area...betcha there's nothing in here to save...lo and behold contained several new and unused flasks that had not their usual copper penny shine, but instead were green. They'd been sitting there unused for at least a good thirty years, and had oxidized!


    Ma Bromwell wanted me to toss them, but I had a better idea...make them available to my customers! These flasks are mean, green, and have lost their coppery sheen and I'm calling them the Liberty Flasks in honor of the big, green, oxidized lady with the beacon herself! After all, they're the same shade as the Statue of Liberty and the dollar bill and every bit as American.


    This ruggedly beautiful flask features an off-set spout and our signature green patina finish, painstakingly achieved through a natural process of 30 years of aging and oxidization at my Vermont workshop. We then apply our proprietary clear coat to seal the patina from changing and locking in the finish for life. Each flask is completely unique, and features parts of raw copper occasionally showing through. Like all of my products, they're made in the USA...and made to last.


    These flasks are only around while supplies last, so you may want to get your hands on one before one of your pals do. You don't want to be left empty-handed and green with envy!

  • C'mon, Get Sappy: It's Maple Syrup Season!

    Posted on March 2, 2015


    It may be hard to fathom given the amount of snow and cold weather New England has seen this winter, but beneath the landscape's frosty exterior a little bit of magic is taking place inside the maple trees: maple syrup season has begun!


    Maple syrup production in America began centuries ago when Native Americans learned how to cultivate sap from maple trees and boil it down into a thicker consistency. Vermont, where many Jacob Bromwell copper items are produced, is the nation's latest producer of the sticky, sweet stuff: 1.3 million gallons are produced in the state each year...enough for triple that amount of flapjacks!


    Maple syrup comes in four grades: Grade A Light Amber ("Fancy"), Grade A Medium Amber, Grade A Dark Amber and Grade B.





















    Of course, pancakes and oatmeal make fine accompaniments for maple syrup, but that's not the only foods you eat with it. Here are some other tasty suggestions for maple syrup:


    *Drizzle it over ice cream

    *Add a touch of it to sautéed brussel sprouts with crumbled bacon

    *Make a salad vinaigrette

    *Mix it with spices to make a meat rub that adds a sweet flavor to beef, pork and chicken

    *After a fresh snowfall, make maple snow taffy


    If you're like me, though, you like maple syrup with your pancakes. That's where my Frontier Frying Pan comes in! Made of forged iron here in the USA, it's guaranteed not to crack, peel, or break and is perfect for making fluffy pancakes, eggs, grilled cheese sandwiches or anything else your stomach desires. Maple syrup and Jacob Bromwell...there's nothing more American!
