The article describes the Mexican olla, a clay vessel which uses evaporation of water on the surface to cool the vessel’s contents enough to keep perishables from spoiling. I’d never heard of it before, but it makes sense.

The next step, I suppose, it getting ice from fire. For that, see The Mosquito Coast.
