traditional v-shaped baking pans - Nfld - what are they used for?
hi - a question from the west coast - i was looking at a marine goods supplier website from Nfld - and they offer these v-shaped loaf pans --- what is the history and the usage? I have looked on internet but can't find any explanation - thank you in advance
TRADITIONAL TIN DOUBLE-V LOAF PANS
The traditional Newfoundland and Labrador v-pans and bun cutters have been used for years in homes around the province. These items are of superior quality made in Newfoundland by a tinsmith exclusively for Mercer's.
there is a photo of them here -
hello and thank you everyone - this is interesting.
i initially wondered if it made it easier to slice the crusts OFF when making decorative tea sandwiches - but that doesn't really make sense does it - as it wastes more edge than a convential loaf would (we need an engineer to measure for us!)
i'll keep looking here at CH to see if we can figure this out. Over and out from the west coast Pacific Ocean.
