~Heavy French Pottery Tripe Pot~

Tripe is a French specialty that I think one probably has to be born into eating. It is essentially the long boiled stomach of beef to which seasonings, vegetables, bacon and that fiery Normandy apple liqueur called Calvados, have been added.

There was a time long ago when commercially prepared 'Tripes a la mode de Caen' were sold in these sturdy pottery pots. These very heavy pots were hand thrown and glazed with a distinctive blue. At the top is a band of white glaze and a metal band which held the piece of muslin that covered the fat that was poured over the dish to seal it from the air. The tripe was packed in these pots, sterlized, and sealed with fat and then the muslin covering was clamped on with the metal band. The pots were stamped with the 'brand' name of the tripe maker. We have two pots marked Tripes Superieur 'Leroy' and one marked, Tripes Superieur 'Taillandier'.

Now these pots are rather rare especially outside Normandy but recently we came across these 3 (2 now sold..) in our area of France at a brocante fair.

I think they are wonderfully handsome and of course they are rather quirky too, given their original purpose.

As I mention these pots are super heavy, each weighing about 5 1/2 pounds! They are 8 inches in diameter and 6 inches high. These are in superb condition with no cracks or chips but the metal bands have rusted...giving them an interesting rustic charm.

I think they would be great filled with apples on the kitchen counter...or wouldn't they be splendid filled with mashed potatoes or anything else you'd like to keep piping hot?

Something special and unique for your French style decor..and because they are just 'So French!'
