HOW TO KEEP WOODEN SPOONS AND CUTTING BOARDS CONDITIONED. BY FOLLOWING THIS EASY RECIPE I’VE BEEN ABLE TO KEEP MANY OF MY UTENSILS IN TIP TOP SHAPE FOR OVER 25 YEARS!
Life has just been way to hectic for me here lately. All I’ve wanted to do is read the new cookbooks I’d purchased, and condition my wooden spoons. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Sometimes a girl just needs to take life a little slower and enjoy the simple tasks in life. This truly isn’t a chore to me. I enjoy the process from start to finish. The making of the spoon butter and the quite time spent with my spoons. Yep go ahead and giggle now. I know I sound like a crazy person, right?
My new motto for 2019 is “I Don’t Have To Do It All”. To me it’s important to take the time to do the little things I love. They’re not for everyone but doing simple tasks makes me happy. A goal for this year is to cook more from scratch and eliminate grains from my diet. I’ll have a harder time doing that with my hubby and sons but I’ll make changes where I can and do my best.
Come on over next week and see the baking cabinet I’ve created. Cooking and baking is much easier when everything is organized and easily accessible. Whoops I’ve got a little side tracked but now back to the spoons.
New Years day was the day I made the time to spend with my spoons! Making a fresh batch of spoon butter was the first thing I did. Just follow this link to get the recipe I use. I did make a little adjustment this time to try something new and used Palm Shortening as my oil, but you may use any of the others I have listed as well.
DO WHAT’S RELAXING
Who would have though how relaxing it can be to line all the old spoons up and give them a good rub down. Not only does this condition the spoons my hands felt amazingly soft afterwards. When I find the time I like to do it once a month but more realistically it happens about once every 3 months.
Many of my spoons, ok most of my spoons are vintage and Amish made. The larger of the bunch I’ve had for over 25 years and still use them today. Confession: I’ve used them as hammers once in a while and I know better. Just goes to show how well there made. They even hold up to my spoon abuse.
New year, new me and I don’t have to do it all!
