I’m all steamed up! Chinese Food Steamers

I bought one of these when I went to China – they cook vegetables sooooo well! It’s in Texas!! So….guess I’ll make one! I still have some of that terra cotta left!

Ceramic food steamers were used in Neolithic China 6 to 7000 years ago and steaming food is still one of the best and healthiest ways to cook, especially vegetables.



Many steam cookers, require that the clay steamer is placed above a pot with boiling water.


The steam enters through a central chimney with the obvious advantage that you don’t lose the juice, nutrients and the steam locks in the flavours of the food.
