Making rumtopf is a traditional way of preserving fruits native to Germany. Beginning with sugar and rum, you add layers of fruit as they are harvested throughout the spring, summer and fall. The fruits are preserved into a delicious dish/drink to be enjoyed during the holidays.
This crock is the perfect balance of an attractive display piece and a functional glazed ceramic rumtopf crock. Each piece is hand made by a local artisan in a small workshop in Poland. The hand applied glaze comes in cream color with a light brown overlay on the outside. The interior has a smooth glazed finish, while the exterior features handmade decorative designs on the surface. The exterior glaze is thinner with a matte finish. This is a Stone Creek Trading exclusive item, we promise you won't find it anywhere else.
This small rumtopf pot features a water seal that allows gases to escape while preventing any mold from forming inside. Traditionally weights are not used when making rumtopf, which is why we do not include weights with our Rumtopf crocks.
This crock features a grape design on the one side. We offer two different colors of grapes which you can choose in the drop down menu. Above the grapes the artisans have hand carved the word "Rumptopf".
Because these crocks are handmade in a small studio, minor differences between crocks are to be expected. However, we feel that these discrepancies are part of the unique beauty of these crocks. The ceramic artists hand draw and paint the designs on the side of the crocks, which means slight variations in shape and color are to be expected. The product photos show a range of options and not an exact replica of the crock you will receive.
These crocks are the perfect display piece while also being functional. They will look right at home on your countertop while they get to work creating a wonderful, traditional rumptopf!
