Two coffee recipes for the stove top percolator-
Our stove top recipe- add coffee of your choice measured in coffee scoops of 1/8 cup coffee per scoop, I prefer Yuban, in the amount of the volume of the pot in cups divided by 2 plus 1. So a 10 cup percolator gets 10/2=5 +1=6 scoops. Once the pot begins to perc. reduce the heat until it just percs and set a timer, we go 10 minutes but try it at less if too strong.
Sandy's recipe for a 8 to 10 pot- take the percolator basket and stem and pitch into the nearest trash can. Add water to pot, bring to hard rolling boil, add coffee in the amount of "2 handfulls and a pinch". Let steep for approx. 10 minutes, gently add about 1/4 cup cold water to settle the grounds.
