A book I read on herbal magic said that making your infusions in metal pots could distrupt the magic. I was perplexed as I couldn’t immediately think of how I could boil water safely in a non-metal container. The solution occured to me today. My crockpot, with it’s stoneware crock, can bring water to a boil and cook for longer periods safely. So I suppose that’s my new age cauldron I’ll be using.
