Keep in mind that copper transmits heat particularly well. He's even a champion of conductivity.It absorbs the heat from the fire very quickly and distributes it evenly. You avoid hot spots and your cooking temperature is homogeneous.
When cooked, the fruits release the pectin molecules naturally present in the cell wall. Again, copper has a valuable advantage: it promotes the binding of these long molecules. Use a wide basin to have a large area of evaporation when cooking. This ability to evaporate quickly allows you to consider shorter, unsweetened cooking that less alters the taste of the fruit. Less water means less added sugar and more aromas.This item is made of copper.
