Q: I bought this clay pot a while ago at a thrift store, but really have no idea what it's used for. I've searched all over the internet, but I can't find any answers. Can you shed some light on what this vessel is all about and what can I cook in it?! Sent by Jennifer Editor: If I'm seeing this right, it looks like there's a hollow chimney that comes up the center of the bowl. I've never seen anything like this! Readers, can any of you give some insight on this pot?
