French Butter Crock Directions
Fill the top (lid) of the Holman Pottery French Butter Crock with butter. Fill the bottom part about halfway with water. As you turn the top part over to fit inside the bottom, the excess water will flow out of the outlet hole.
The butter is protected by an airtight seal of water at the base of the crock. It does not have to be refrigerated. Not only does the crock keep the butter at the perfect spreading consistency by insulating and keeping the butter cool, it is designed to enhance the flavor and freshness by preventing the butter from picking up bad flavors.
Be sure to wash the butter crock thoroughly before adding new butter. The Holman Pottery French Butter Crock can be washed in the dishwasher.

Holman Pottery Oil Cruet
As a rule of thumb, clean the Holman Pottery Oil Cruet as often as you empty it. Leaving oil or vinegar inside the Holman Pottery Oil Cruet for a long extended length of time is not recommended. Residue will build up and the Holman Pottery Oil Cruet may be difficult to clean.
Although the Holman Pottery Oil Cruet can be placed in the
dishwasher, sometimes the dishwasher jets do not wash the inside of
the vessel very well.
You can take a small piece of cloth, add dishwasher soap to it, and put it inside the Holman Pottery Oil Cruet. Add a small amount of warm water. Put your finger over the spout and shake vigorously. The wet cloth will shake around to all sides, cleaning it. Rinse and repeat if necessary. You can remove the wet cloth with a toothpick or tweezers to get it back out of the spout.
After thorough clean water rinsing, you can dry your Holman Pottery Oil Cruet in the oven at 350 degrees. All condensation will evaporate in just a few minutes. Remember to remove spout before placing in oven. CAUTION: Let cool before touching.
A dish for delicious tidbits. A night of festivity or a simple gathering can begin with marinated olives, served in a Holman Pottery Olive Combo. The side cups include a small one for toothpicks and a large one for the olives' pits.
Garlic Herb Bread Dip for
Olive Oil Dipping Dish
§ 1 to 2 cloves garlic, put through garlic press
§ sprigs of fresh marjoram; strip off leaves, should have 1 to 2 Tbs. leaves
§ 1 lg. fresh basil leaf, torn up small
§ a few shakes of red pepper flakes
§ a few grinds of coarse black pepper
§ shake of salt
§ ½ cup olive oil
Combine all ingredients in Holman Pottery Olive Oil Dipping Dish. Heat in microwave on High for 1 min. Allow to cool.
Before serving, heat again on High for approximately 20 – 30 seconds.
This dip may be used several times and it’s okay to add an additional ¼ cup olive oil once the mixture gets too low.
Ever present near the stove in European country kitchens, the salt pig keeps salt – especially the coarse grains of sea salt and kosher salt – within quick reach. In the open air, these salts are less apt to form clumps. It's also thought that the hooded shape keeps moisture from collecting on the salt.
In the Middle Ages people used to store items such as salt in wide necked jars which were made from a clay called "pygg". The so called "pig" jar retained its name long after potters stopped using "pygg" clay to produce pottery.
Your Holman Pottery Salt Pig is based on an old design, featuring a large, open “snout” that simplifies grabbing a pinch or a spoonful. It even has a little curly tail on the back.
We suggest you keep your Holman Pottery Salt Pig on the kitchen countertop next to your cook top so you too can share the convenience enjoyed by the cooks of yesteryear.
Stopperless Salt Shaker
Each Holman Pottery Stopperless Salt Shaker is made in one piece with an inner and outer wall. To fill the shaker, turn it over and pour salt into the hole at the bottom. Tap shaker lightly to help salt slip into the hole. Tipping the shaker slightly can help the salt to go into the space between the inner cone and the outer wall of the vessel.
Turn the Holman Pottery Stopperless Salt Shaker right side up. When you want to salt your food, hold the shaker upright, and shake it over your food. Salt will bounce around inside, and some will bounce out over the inner wall and salt your food.
To use, simply place vegetables and any seasonings in Holman Pottery Steamer and place atop a pan of boiling water. Steam 10-20 minutes.
Serve directly from the steamer. Food will stay hot and delicious. This method of cooking retains all the vitamins and minerals of the vegetables.
The Holman Pottery Steamer may also be used for meats and rice. Cooking time will vary.
