Another Witch Purchase

 After having recently said that I rarely buy witch items anymore, I've bought another.  In 30 years of collecting vintage witch pieces, I have only seen maybe 3 of these, two of which I now own.  This is a chestnut roaster.

A floral punch pattern on the back. You place this over hot coals to roast the chestnuts.

The inside.  These pieces are always made of brass.  You can see the mess left from someone polishing it.
I made this cowboy caviar this morning for a party my daughter is going to.  If you haven't tried this recipe yet, give it a shot. It is scrumptious.  You can find the recipe here: http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2013/07/bean-and-corn-salsa.html
