We received a SchlemmerTopf (Clay Pot) for Christmas. Have not used it as yet. Thinking about a roasting chicken tonight. It came with a recipe book, and the recipes look fantastic. Was wondering if anyone ever used one before, and what did you make?

Made beef bourgoin in Paris. Chef got meats from hell, stew cuts, rubber. But, because it was cooked slow and low, it came out supper tender and was out of this world.

It cooked most of one day if I remember right?

I did a whole fryer last night with russet potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, with a fresh parsley butter over top and inside. I also put some sage, rosemary, and thyme inside the cavity. Soaked the lid for 20 minutes, into a cold oven going up to 475 for 90 minutes. It was outstanding, and so simple. We had a Simi Sauvignon Blanc with it. Very nice meal.

Having a left over chicken sandwich for lunch, as I type. Of course, with Hellman's mayo, salt and pepper.

I have never heard of one of those pots, but sounds like a good idea to purchase one and give it a spin! Will have to goggle it some. Thanks for posting about it, Jim!

Jerry, did ya ever do fish in it? Just curious how it came out if so.

Never fish. Fish is is a high heat, short time.

This is a form of a crock pot. But betterhttp://www.bonairetalk.com/newsgroup/clipart/happy.gif

Thought so, Jerry, but saw recipes for fish, seafood and that threw me into how that would come out. Think I will pick up one this week-end. http://www.bonairetalk.com/newsgroup/clipart/happy.gif

They have quite a few recipes for fish in their book. One that I am looking at right now is a Fish Ragout Helgoland. It looks tremendous. They also have a great looking recipe for Dover Sole fillets.
