Local Potter Inspired Eggs
February 20, 2014 § Leave a comment
A recent trip to Peter Pots Pottery in West Kingston, RI inspired me to make a sweet egg breakfast.
It’s definitely worth the trip to Peter Pots gallery off of Route 138 on Glen Rock Road. Kyle and I were there a few years ago during a snowy RI winter and this year’s visit was no different. The location is just a bit into the woods. On this day, the backdrop of snow covered trees and rocks bordering the stream adjacent to the shop was beautiful. I felt a little like we were stepping back in time. The shop has been located in Glen Rock Mill since 1954 and while we were looking around, we were approached by an older gentleman, Oliver Green, who started Peter Pots at RISD in 1948. It was so cool to hear him talk about his designs. I love listening to people speak with passion about their work.
Needless to say, I left with a few new items including these small little pots pictured above and penguin salt & pepper shakers pictured below.
The next day I made a sweet eggy breakfast using the pots. Ramekins can also be used for this.
I coated the pots with coconut oil and added 2 beaten eggs with 1 mashed banana and a sprinkle of vanilla powder to each. I baked them for about 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven until the eggs set.
I hope you get the chance to visit Peter Pots some day or at least check out there website 🙂
